Devcards aims to provide a visual REPL experience for ClojureScript

do people use devcards with github pages? is it typical to just commit the compiled JS, or is there a better way?

Isn't that pretty much the only way? Not really related to devcards though 🙂

(I'm not saying that's not a proper question to this channel, but rather that devcards to gh pages shouldn't be any more complicated than any other cljs/js thingy to gh pages)


honestly didn't know if there was another way. have never used gh pages before

@eyelidlessness: looks like I’m treading the same path you just have - trying to get a devcards ui on github pages. I’m currently stuck on the advanced build not including any of my code (but it has react twice, I think?). I made sure I had :devcards true in the right place, as that’s what fixed yours, but still no dice. would you mind posting your cljsbuild config?

here’s mine, for reference:

:github-pages {:source-paths ["src" "dev"]
                              :compiler {:output-to "docs/gh-pages.js"
                                         :main snowth.devcards
                                         :devcards true
                                         :optimizations :advanced}}


is :github-pages the id?

and I am calling devcards.core/start-devcard-ui!


one of mine (i'm testing against both reagent 0.5.1 and 0.6.0 so i have a nearly identical 0.6.0 compilation):

{:id "0.5.1"
 :source-paths ["docs" "src" "test"]
 :compiler {:devcards true
            :optimizations :advanced
            :output-dir "docs/0.5.1/out"
            :output-to "docs/0.5.1/build.js"
            :source-map "docs/0.5.1/"}
 :notify-command ["phantomjs"


you may want to use the [{:id "github-pages" ... }] structure, as i am pretty sure that's preferred


not sure if it'll affect your build but it can, i've seen cljsbuild do some wonky things with the map structure

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:45:49.000071Z

alright, I’ll give that a shot. I could never tell which one was preferred 🙂


pretty sure vector of id'd map is preferred, though there are some outdated wiki pages which are not so clear 🙂

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:48:12.000073Z

same result


any js errors?

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:49:46.000075Z

there’s an error that I think occurs because of react being included twice, during compilation:

SEVERE: file:/Users/brent/.m2/repository/cljsjs/react-dom/0.14.3-0/react-dom-0.14.3-0.jar!/cljsjs/react-dom/common/react-dom.ext.js:85: ERROR - constant ReactDOMServer assigned a value more than once.

var ReactDOMServer = {};

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:51:24.000078Z



worth noting, this is my devcards dependency:

[devcards "0.2.1-7"
 :exclusions [org.clojure/clojure


i specify clojure/clojurescript directly, and use the react deps provided by each version of reagent i test

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:53:16.000081Z

well, this is promising - it wrote an out directory for the first time

bhagany 2016-09-22T15:53:33.000082Z

I had removed :output-dir before because it appeared to not be using it
