I always find it interesting to here what people use clojure(script) for. Feel free to just pick a recent thing you’ve found particularly interesting. Can be a small experiment, or a large SaaS app, doesn’t matter.
I co-founded (with a ‘domain expert’) a bootstrapped SaaS startup (a web-app) called catermonkey.com. For now its focus is on the Dutch/Belgian market, since that’s where we’re from, but we’ll expand our horizons when time feels right. We are seeing happy customers, because we are solving a real problem: to help automate boring tasks that catering busineses have to do on a day to day basis.
Unfortunately the COVID19 pandemic has hit hard in the event/catering world, but it does give them the time they otherwise lack to look at how they can improve their operations by trying out an app like ours.
I use Clojure on the backend, a SQL database, and Clojurescript on the frontend (re-frame mostly). My experience is really really positive. It’s my 5th production web-app I’ve worked on. I love specifically how clojure/script is NOT in the way of solving the problems I face. I just tackle the problem, generally speaking, and I don’t fight the tools too much.
I really feel Clojure is the go-fast language.
Curious to what y’all work on at the moment!
