I think the “liveness” aspect when building UIs (and more!) is generally really not appreciated enough. Hot-reload can be very helpful but as pointed out in the post, interacting with the UI and supporting data structures through a repl / evaluate interface makes things even much more concrete.. and fun! From my point of view and experience this enables not only much faster iteration but also allows to ask “what if” questions that might not even come to mind in more static frameworks. So I’m really excited about this project.
I’m quite excited by this. I have worked with Clojure for a couple years now, and quite enjoy it. I’ve only done web backends, but would love to try my hand at (simple) desktop UI apps/games too. I think such a framework would be a great addition to the Clojure ecosystem.
