    Is anyone using natively-compiled Clojure for anything? Clojure is seeming more attractive lately, given:

    1. there’s a natively-compiled option
    2. ClojureScript seems like the best alternative to writing JavaScript/TypeScript
    3. new tools like Babashka have made scripting with Clojure possible
    4. Rich Hickey and the language are now being supported by Nubank

      Looks like natively compiled stuff is mostly getting use for developer tooling like clj-kondo. Calva makes heavy use of this to provide intelligence for VS Code. I’ve used Babashka for some internal tooling and scripting, and it’s definitely a great way to do automation.
