Clojure Applied: From Practice to Practitioner by Ben Vandgrift

By Ben Vandgrift

Think within the Clojure method! as soon as you are accustomed to Clojure, take the next move with prolonged classes at the top practices and most important judgements you will need to make whereas constructing. the right way to version your area with information, remodel it with natural capabilities, deal with kingdom, unfold your paintings throughout cores, and constitution apps with parts. realize find out how to use Clojure within the actual global, and release the rate and tool of this gorgeous language at the Java digital Machine.

Clojure Applied provides the sensible, real looking suggestion and intensity of box that is been lacking out of your improvement perform. you need to boost software program within the most appropriate, effective approach attainable. This publication grants the solutions you have been searching for in pleasant, transparent language.

Dive into the center strategies of Clojure: immutable collections, concurrency, natural capabilities, and nation administration. you are going to eventually get the total photograph you have been trying to find, instead of dozens of poser items you need to gather your self. First, discover the middle techniques of Clojure improvement: how you can version your area with immutable information; select the precise assortment; and write basic, natural features for effective transformation. subsequent you are going to practice these center strategies to construct purposes: observe how Clojure manages nation and identification; unfold your paintings for concurrent programming; and create and gather elements. eventually, see the right way to deal with exterior integration and deployment issues via constructing a checking out process, connecting with different info resources, and getting your libraries and functions out the door.

Go past the toy field and into Clojure's frame of mind. by means of the tip of this booklet, you should have the instruments and knowledge to place Clojure's strengths to work.

What You Need:

To persist with in addition to the examples within the booklet, you'll want Clojure 1.6, Leinegen 2, and Java 6 or higher.

Example text

By consolidating this into the constructor, we effectively automate the I/O we know we’ll require. Using side effects in this way often adds complexity, however. In this example, we must be prepared to deal with an IOException thrown by either ImageIO/read or input-stream whenever we construct a PlanetImage. Constructor Functions and Java Interop Constructor functions are useful when one of your domain entities is imported from Java. Java classes often have many constructors for a variety of types—some of which have the same arity—and don’t always do exactly what you want.

Note that this only happens on the first call with an unknown entity type. Thereafter the protocol has an extension, and it’ll no longer route through Object. Wrapping Up You’ve seen how to use maps and records to model your domain entities, how to build flexible constructors for those entities, and how to connect them together. You’ve also used Schema to describe and validate those entities. Clojure’s approach to visible data is what makes libraries like Prismatic Schema possible. Data isn’t locked inside objects but is available for annotation and processing.

Model Your Domain • 20 function implementation for a particular dispatch value. Invoking the multimethod first invokes the dispatch function to produce a dispatch value, then selects the best match for that value, and finally invokes that function implementation. We need to extend our recipe-manager domain slightly to add a Store domain entity and a function that can look up the cost of an ingredient in a particular grocery store. clj (defmulti cost (fn [entity store] (class entity))) (defmethod cost Recipe [recipe store] (reduce +$ zero-dollars (map #(cost % store) (:ingredients recipe)))) (defmethod cost Ingredient [ingredient store] (cost-of store ingredient)) First the defmulti defines the dispatch function as (class entity), which produces a dispatch value based on type.
