I've been wandering through the there an ability to listen for changes to a query, or did I make that up?


There's (crux/listen node ...), which notifies you of incoming transactions - is that what you were thinking of?


We did also spike a 3df integration at one stage:


I literally joined #crux to ask this question 😂 well done

@U899JBRPF are there plans to integrate/stabilize more of the differential dataflow approach?


There are no plans on the near-term horizon, unfortunately. It's a very interesting problem space but we think it's ~orthogonal to building a fast OLTP-capable DBMS (at least with the R&D capacity we have today, anyway)

I see, that's a pragmatic response and I like it. Is there anything else in the clojure world that's attempting to embrace the differential dataflow approach? (I'm unfamiliar with clojure DBs); maybe datomic?

I've not seen anyone attempt to recreate Differential's tricks in Clojure, but there are various rule engines that offer somewhat similar features, e.g.


amazing suggestions, both naga and o'Doyle! Thanks 🙌

I use destructuring maps in function signatures so I know what parts of a map I want to use, for whatever that's worth
