You should statt shadow-cljs to watch your app [shadow-cljs watch app]

This will start a nrepl

And in Emacs you could cider-connect-cljs

Hello! I’m having problems to understand what’s the actual transformation that a Reagent component does to the props when it passes them down to the actual React component. I have a JS object that I get from a third-party library, and I’m applying `js->clj` to it in order to make some transformations and later pass it to a Reagent component. For this transformations, I would prefer to deal with keywords instead of strings, but if I apply `js->clj` with `:keywordize-keys true`, the Reagent component later doesn’t behave the same way. I thought Reagent wouldn’t care if the keys are keywordized or not!


Apart from some other things, Reagent turns keys like :a-b into "aB". Reagent's conversion is different from js->clj.


that was useful, thanks - so it seems that in a scenario like the one I’m describing, it’s not a good practice to do a js->clj transformation if that object is going to be eventually passed down to a Reagent component, and probably it’s better to deal with the js object directly using something like applied-science.js-interop, right?


Or, if you use shadow-cljs, you can use the regular way to get/set properties via interop if you specify that the type of the object is js:

(.-myProp ^js obj)


makes sense, thanks


I’ll probably come back here at some point in the future as I’m still learning about all this and I need some time to play with things
