2019-06-30 Update

I am up to chapter 19 in Simply Scheme. This chapter is higher-order functions.

I looked into a couple of other Clojure web frameworks this month. Someone did a presentation on Duct at the Austin Clojure meetup a while back. I might have to look at James Reeves’ presentation on Integrant at Skills Matter, since Duct is built on Integrant. (That presentation is hard to search for; if you search for “Integrant”, you get anything to do with “integration”.)

There is a tutorial on Duct by someone at Circle Ci that I was kind of able to follow. Until I saw this code:

(defmethod ig/init-key :film-ratings.handler.film/create [_ {:keys [db]}]
  (fn [{[_ film-form] :ataraxy/result :as request}]
    (let [film (reduce-kv (fn [m k v] (assoc m (keyword k) v))
                          (dissoc film-form "__anti-forgery-token"))
          result (boundary.film/create-film db film)
          alerts (if (:id result)
                   {:messages ["Film added"]}
      [::response/ok (views.film/film-view film alerts)])))

I am not too clear what that does. Perhaps knowing more about Integrant will help. (There are also other presentations on Duct at Skills Matter here and here.)

There is also Clojure on Coast (Github repo here, website here). I think the aim is to be Rails for Clojure. I might try this out too. I would really like to work with Clara Rules, and I think a web app might be the best way to enter data.

Or I might just stick with Luminus.

You’re welcome.
