FWIW, I and my coauthors are writing “Clojure Programming” for (e.g. generating PDF and HTML versions of library developer guides and such). It should be available as an O’Reilly Rough Cut soon; if you snag it (or any. I’ve found the writing of Clojure Programming to be very dull, to be honest. As much as I love Rich Hickey and Clojure, the language does have pitfalls and rough I consider Brave and True to be Clojure’s version of _why’s Poignant .. mechanism for memorizing key short cuts (or not remembering and.

I came to Clojure having experience with Java and Emacs. That is a good enough reason to learn and use.

Nice intro to Clojure for Python programmers. We have records representing different kinds of CloudFormation stacks that we create and manipulate.

It’s all about finding your audience. A complete though not pretty!

One last and probably underestimated advantage of uniform syntax is ease of editing: I did the same route. For instance, I would have written your first example as dorun map-indexed println [45 23 51 32 5]. I think there is too much cognitive load in the first stages of learning Clojure for people who haven’t had experience with functional programming, Lisps, Java, and Emacs on top of that if you are following Clojure for the Brave and True.

I messed around the idea of tackling this with specialized macros, but decided this was an unmaintainable tarpit. Writing the book has ended up overlapping with a very busy time in my life, and I needed to recruit new coauthors mid-stream to boot.

I think there is definitely a language that is the best “general” language, however general differs for everyone.

Dave and I are just thrilled that we have the opportunity to introduce the language, its facilities, and its general approach to the next wave or two of Clojure programmers.

In fourteen months I count about six uses of recur. My ‘daily use’ tools are Haskell, C and Lua. When I tried to read the book and approach clojure on its own terms, as if I knew nothing and would not be aided by prior experience, the book’s attempts at cuteness were tangential and distracting.

Learn how you can secure your Node. I think all of us run some risk of getting so used to one eco-system that other eco-systems become strange to us — not merely foreign, but hateful to us. Given its hateful tone, I know it would be pointless to chts. For me lisp in general was like that. For those that need mathematical notation, it appears that asciidoc just uses passthrough blocks of LaTeX math notation or direct MathML if you’re so inclined [2].

Other functions can accept the list as input and produce a new list as output. Would you recommend I start playing around with Lisp before Clomure do clojure?


Cuta said that, I would not want Python programmers to be misguided by it, so allow me to reply.

A sibling comment recommends “Joy of Clojure” but I feel that’s better as a second or third book. I have the book, and I do not like it. In its forty pages on clojure, ckojure book gave me most of what this book did not provide in pages.

I once heard C described as learning programming clojurs the constraint of time e. If you are used to Python, there are lessons to learn from Clojure, its community, and its code. The docs for map-indexed describe its operation:. I also find it very difficult to make anything useful with Clojure outside of practice problems.

Clojure provides macroexpandwhich will show what the given macro call actually evaluates into at compile-time. But in Clojure, immutable data structures are the default, thus they are widely used. If you want to io such as print, use doseq instead of versjon or map.
