On to the projects that I've been working on!
Currently my attention is mostly directed at the upcoming Strange loop talk. I'm very excited to be part of the last iteration of this conference. It will also be my first time flying to the USA!
Rahul De and Anupriya Johari will be giving a workshop at JavaZone on Tuesday the 5th of September. Check the details here.
Here are updates about the projects/libraries I've worked on last month.
- jet: CLI to transform between JSON, EDN, YAML and Transit using Clojure
- Release version
0.7.27 (see changelogs) with missing 1.11 functions and options for easier kebab/camel/etc. casing.
- quickdoc: Quick and minimal API doc generation for Clojure
- No update in quickdoc, but happy to see that Github have resolved a bug on their side with local anchors in HTML, which quickdoc relies on
- Require clojure 1.11 as the minimal clojure version
- sci.configs: A collection of ready to be used SCI configs.
- Worked together with @niwinz to make sci.configs upgradable to promesa 10 and 11. Many thanks to Andrey for making promesa backward-compatible again, since sci.configs relies on Clojure libraries to be always upgradable without breaking changes.
- nbb: Scripting in Clojure on Node.js using SCI
- Bumped sci.configs and promesa
- deps.clj: A faithful port of the clojure CLI bash script to Clojure
- The tools jar relocated to Github releases so deps.clj was updated to this new location, with backward compatibility
- Per my request, Alex added a
.sha256 file to Github releases so the downloaded jar file could be verified against corruption
- SCI: Configurable Clojure/Script interpreter suitable for scripting and Clojure DSLs
- Clojure compatibility: allow
(def foo/foo 1) in namespace
- Clojure compatibility: reset file metadata on var when it's re-evaluated from other file
- babashka: native, fast starting Clojure interpreter for scripting.
sci.core in babashka
- Asahi linux support (linux on Apple m1/m2)
- Several other library upgrades and Clojure compatibility fixes
- Compatibility with the newest integrant version
- pod-babashka-go-sqlite3: A babashka pod for interacting with sqlite3
- Upgrade sqlite version so it supports json fields
defclass to cherry (similar to squint)
- Fix overriding core vars
- clj-kondo: static analyzer and linter for Clojure code that sparks joy.
- working towards a new release with a large number of small bug fixes, see upcoming changelog
- http-client: babashka's http-client
- A number of small bugfixes and additions
These are (some of the) other projects I'm involved with but little to no activity happened in the past month.
