I continued working on the Pedestal Tutorial this week. I’m going to continue working on it for the next 2 weeks.
I’m about halfway done with Part 1. I ran into some problems on Simulating Service Push, where it wasn’t recognizing a method in one of the namespaces I included. I dug around a ton and never figured out what was wrong – I eventually threw in the towel, reverted to a previous commit and re-did the work and the bug didn’t appear. Heisenbastards.
I did also find some helpful, big picture resources:
- What I’ve Learned About Making ClojureScript Applications With Pedestal by Tero Parviainen. This provides the big picture whats and whys that the tutorial doens’t (or doesn’t begin with). EVERYONE thinking of going through the tutorial should read this first.
- Web Apps in Clojure and ClojureScript with Pedestal by Brenton Ashworth. I’m halfway through this (I take good notes which I’ll share later), but it includes the tagline that I wish was at the top of Pedestal.io:
Pedestal is designed interactive, 2-way transfer of data
- I know videos are a pain to watch, but the demo app at 6:45 is pretty spectacular.
