Even though Clojure and ClojureScript are largely identical in their semantics, their interop/build process/runtimes/tooling are very different, and quite frankly, when it comes to new user adoption, once I mention Java-on-the-server, it becomes an instant “no thanks, not interested”.
Is it time for ClojureScript to take center stage? Should the community start looking at ClojureScript/Node.js for server-side development (e.g. Macchiato) as a viable alternative to Clojure/Java?
Just some thoughts from a Clojure fan-boy who’d love to see more people using it.
