In #clojure, there was a discussion about "lightweight". Is there a tool that will look at a deps.edn and show you how much each dependency (and its transitive deps) "weigh?" (eg. jar size, namespace loading time, other metrics?). If not, that seems like a cool mini-project.

tbh, it's not great at this but it's something I'd be interested in making better

and maybe a picture is not the best avenue for it


Okay, hear me out. 😂 Write a read-able algorithm in Clojure Have a neural net convert your readable algorithm to something super duper fast in unrecognizable Clojure

Optimizing clojure and keeping it recognizable is enough of a challenge (ask me how I know 🙂) . But I imagine you can do a lot with meander, core.logic and tools.analizer


1. Write a Clojure algorithm 2. Have a quantum computer run it with all possible inputs 3. Have the quantum computer construct all possible algorithms 4. Return all algorithms that generate the same outputs as the initial algorithm 5. Peruse the infinite list at your leisure, and pick the one you like best

You forgot the
