The Functional Phone: Building a native iOS app with ClojureScript and Clojure
This talk will explore how FarBetter has built a native iOS app using ClojureScript for on-phone business logic, mated with an Objective-C UI. FarBetter's back end is a Clojure-based microservices environment. The talk will explore:
- Running ClojureScript on a phone
- Using Prismatic's Schema library for targeted type checking
- Communicating between front and back ends via websockets
- Structuring large functional programs via the Component library.
