Details

ClojureScript has the best client side work flow available. Beating out JS (even with modern tooling), and other compile to JS languages. With ClojureScript and figwheel we have hot code reloading, stable application state across reloads, & an interactive browser connected REPL. You can develop your client side app as if you where *inside* the browser. In this short presentation we will go over what figwheel (https://github.com/bhauman/lein-figwheel) does, how to set it up, and demo what it is like to build an SPA in ClojureScript + Om.
