Learning ClojureScript

By: W. David Jarvis, Allen Rohner

Overview of this book

Clojure is an expressive language that makes it possible to easily tackle complex software development challenges. Its bias toward interactive development has made it a powerful tool, enabling high developer productivity. In this book, you will first learn how to construct an interactive development experience for ClojureScript.. You will be guided through ClojureScript language concepts, looking at the basics first, then being introduced to advanced concepts such as functional programming or macro writing. After that, we elaborate on the subject of single page web applications, showcasing how to build a simple one, then covering different possible enhancements. We move on to study more advanced ClojureScript concepts, where you will be shown how to address some complex algorithmic cases. Finally, you'll learn about optional type-checking for your programs, how you can write portable code, test it, and put the advanced compilation mode of the Google Closure Compiler to good use.

Chapter 3. Advanced ClojureScript Concepts

In this chapter, we'll introduce some more advanced concepts of ClojureScript as a language. At this point, you should already have all the tools you need to write basic ClojureScript programs, and this chapter will help take you from that level of expertise to one at which you feel comfortable tackling more complicated and extensive engineering tasks. This chapter will cover the following topics:

  • Functional programming concepts

  • Control flow

  • Writing macro for ClojureScript

  • Concurrent design patterns using core.async
