ClojureScript Analysis and Compilation

14 January 2014

Without a doubt Light Table is now one of the most popular ClojureScript applications in the world. It’s also likely one of the most complex at around 11,000 lines of ClojureScript.

I think Light Tablers looking to extend their shiny new environment might first consider reaching for JavaScript. I challenge them to give ClojureScript a very serious consideration before doing so.

To encourage users of Light Table, Clojure, and ClojureScript to get to know their tool better, I’ve put together an interactive guide to the ClojureScript analyzer and compiler.

I think exploring a compiler should always be this simple and interactive.
