I haven't tried it myself but that particular use case seems to be well documented at the very least.

I have a figwheel-main setup for targetting nodejs, but shadow looks like a more serious build tool. Any concrete pros/cons one way or the other?


i am new i cant help really, but i heard that people like shadow-cljs, and by searching online i saw that shadow-cljs is good with npm , but i cant compare tools


People use both. A few years ago I made a switch from figwheel to shadow-cljs back when it had the best support for NPM modules. I've seen people say that nowadays figwheel-main supports NPM modules just as well but I cannot vouch for that in any way.


I’ve not yet got Figwheel set up so that it can crank out a production build rather than an NREPL-equipped dev environment - everything I’ve been doing is essentially live-coded dev. Maybe I’ll look into shadow for addressing that.


Beginner question. Is it possible to set javascript object properties by providing the property name as a string? Not: (set! (.-age person) 81), but something like (assoc person "age" 81)? I'm aware of, curious if it's possible without pulling in a dependency.


In javascript, i'd do person["age"] = 81.


goog.object.set looks promising.

goog.object.set was what I needed. 🦆
