A weekly newsletter and podcast diving into Clojure programs and libraries by Daniel Compton.

82: Formatting, coroutines, REBLs, new Clojure RCs

Sunday, 16 December 2018


There’s been a lot going on in the Clojure community in the last few weeks. There was another sprawling discussion about community involvement in the development of the Clojure language, and then the Conj came afterwards with a bunch of great talks. I want to give a special mention to Alex Miller and whoever else was involved with getting the talks up on YouTube so quickly. I wasn’t there, but I was still able to follow along virtually with not a lot of delay.

If you’ve enjoyed The REPL this year, either in podcast or newsletter form, please consider supporting me by signing up for a trial of Deps. Deps is a private, hosted, Maven repository service that I run. I enjoy writing and recording The REPL, but it does take me away from other paying work. If you or your company needs to share private Clojure dependencies and don’t want to have to run, patch, maintain, and backup your own Maven repository, take a look at signing up for Deps. If Deps isn’t a good fit for you, please let me know also, that’s really useful information.



Libraries & Books.

People are worried about Types. ?



Recent Developments.



One perspective from BloombergNEF about preparing for a low carbon world. I sometimes avoid looking at climate change related news because it can feel so paralysing. This was a good overview of both the looming challenges, and some bright spots, particularly around solar and wind generation.

I’m Daniel Compton. I maintain public Maven repositories at Clojars, private ones at Deps, and help fund OSS Clojure projects (along with tons of generous members like Pitch, JUXT, Metosin, Adgoji, and Funding Circle) at Clojurists Together. If you’ve enjoyed reading this, tell your friends to sign up at therepl.net, or post a link in your company chatroom. If you’ve seen (or published) a blog post, library, or anything else Clojure/JVM related please reply to this to let me know about it.
