@jellea: you’re sure light table will be used as editor at clojure bridge berlin? I remember cursive being recommended for everyone at the coaches meeting

@stephan: @jellea: The Cursive setup is still not as easy as it could be, and the UI by default is pretty busy. I spoke to some ClojureBridge folk at clj/west, and I have a plan to make all that better. It’ll be a little while though.

It’s definitely a priority of mine to make Cursive accessible for things like ClojureBridge.


hehe damn, I didn’t use cursive before but tried it out some days ago to get used to it before clojurebridge


after a while I really liked it 😄

There’s nothing wrong with that :simple_smile:


all right, light table it is then.

cfleming 2015-07-02T15:13:45.000183Z

I’m not sure - I don’t actually know what the decision was in that case.

cfleming 2015-07-02T15:14:11.000184Z

Just that Cursive is not as totally-newbie-friendly as I’d like right now.

cfleming 2015-07-02T15:15:04.000185Z

I’m actually helping out at a ClojureBridge in Auckland in September, and I’d like to get at least some of the people on Cursive if possible, to see how it goes.

If I have time, hopefully I’ll have a standalone download-and-start version by then.


sounds great!

@stephan: we’re going to use Nightcode.


Ok, I’ll try it out over the weekend

@stephan: The main issue with LightTable now is OS X Yosemite — it can be very slow and laggy there due to a bug in node-webkit. The upcoming 0.8 release will address that (by virtue of switching to atom-shell!) but it’s still a ways off.

seancorfield 2015-07-02T16:00:16.000191Z

LightTable is great everywhere else — and on earlier OS X versions — but virtually unusable on Yosemite 😞 At work we used LightTable all-day, every-day for all our work… until Yosemite… then we all switched (back) to Emacs.

seancorfield 2015-07-02T16:01:43.000192Z

NightCode is beginner-friendly enough to be a reasonable choice but it still feels a bit "IDE-ish" (and as I found when I tried it recently, the git integration cannot handle large histories so it isn’t usable in a lot of real world environments — such as at our workplace).
