@Erjaeger I’ve been using Common Lisp for a few years, and fiddling with ClojureScript a lot lately. Their were some weird edges to ClojureScript that I haven’t been able to grok, but I’ve totally fallen in love with wisp
@eli_oat Didn't knew about wisp ! I'll take a look !
@Erjaeger I made a Game Of Life representation in Quil (clojure) for my students to see.
If you want to take a look:
@ekaitz_zarraga Oh that's really nice. I'm really impress by the number of lines you have in your project, it's really small. I don't understand everything atm but I'll definitely check that later when I'll be more fluent with Clojure.
@Erjaeger ClojureScript might not have multiple features from Common Lisp - for instance, cons cells, mutability by default, or an object system. Be cautious while translating between these two languages.
@phoe Oh okay, I'll keep a eye on that. Since on the Quil website they said it works on browser without a modification, I thought it was the same implementation.
@Erjaeger In general, Clojure and Common Lisp are quite different from each other. The first emphasizes functional programming while the latter is multi-paradigm.
@phoe Sorry I misread, I thought you said Clojure and ClojureScript.
Yes okay, I see what you mean. But I imagine I could do functional programming with ClojureScript even it's allow other paradigm ? It's still a little obscured to me.
@phoe Okay, thanks for the tips. I have to keep in mind that it's a good way to learn Common lisp and functionnal programming but if I really want to learn Clojure there's some better books out there.
@Erjaeger Sounds awesome. I keep wishing there was a Clojure mode in the original Processing API!
ooooh I just downloaded this! was planning to start on it soon. would love to know what was your experience while reading it (I thought it was shorter!)
@f3r nice! I'm just at the beginning for now, but I'll make some update about my Lisp journey!
