@admay For me Graal was the turning point in writing CLI applications in Clojure. Most of the time when building a client for a server side app one needs instant startup and these commands tend to live short. Before Graal I always had to write the CLI stuff in rust or go just to avoid the massive jvm overhead but had to give up clojure’s expressiveness.


I would never compile a server side app to Graal native as it totally defeats the JVM JIT’s purpose.


@admay the "Native Clojure with GraalVM" talk by Jan Stępień was along these lines (i.e. the cli angle)


One reason to look more into Haskell for me was to have fast binary CLI’s but now it’s possible with Clojure…
