What's the update on LightTable these days? I left clojure for a year, wanna develop in a Windows machine

benedek 2015-08-19T15:15:47.000349Z

i think @rundis did quite a bit of work around clj/cljs support there via https://github.com/rundis/clj-light-refactor

edthix 2015-08-19T15:16:01.000351Z

Basically what's a good IDE (not emacs) for Clojure on Windows? any inputs from all?

sveri 2015-08-19T15:16:12.000352Z

Cursive for IntelliJ



benedek 2015-08-19T15:16:24.000354Z

also https://github.com/rundis/parembrace

edthix 2015-08-19T15:16:48.000356Z

IntelliJ ok checking it out

edthix 2015-08-19T15:17:00.000357Z

Seems like light table (the one I have) is still 0.7.2


I don't know about light table... they did released more versions but if I were to take a guess that project is dead


They are focusing now in a new thing


eve I think is called


LightTable is dead IMO, you can help me build a new one: https://github.com/darwin/plastic


Not clojure related afaik



edthix 2015-08-19T15:23:32.000366Z

LT is dead? aaww too bad

benedek 2015-08-19T15:27:15.000367Z

well, again rundis did invest some time in it and posted lt mailing list about the revival of the project

benedek 2015-08-19T15:27:29.000368Z

but no idea how that worked out. i am more like an emacs user ๐Ÿ˜‰

sveri 2015-08-19T15:35:23.000372Z

Hm, isn't lighttable open sourced on github? So it's up to the community to decide if it's dead or not


I was just referring to recent development activity.

benedek 2015-08-19T15:37:39.000374Z

essentially yes i guess

benedek 2015-08-19T15:38:06.000375Z

again: i think although the core project is close to dead clojure support got much better lately


apologies, didnโ€™t want to hurt anyones feelings

LT works and is a decent stepping stone for starting with ClojureScript. But it doesn't currently appear to have much of a future. I used it as a crutch while I looked at various alternative editors. I've been very happy with Cursive/IntelliJ on Windows and I'm keeping an eye on the work that @darwin is doing with plastic. Cursive has a lot going for it and the support is great.

will +1 on cursive if you donโ€™t want to use emacs. If you are a little more flexible on emacs maybe try spacemacs


I really have tried to use other editors and ides, and I'm a fan of IntelliJ.... but for clojure things I always end up using emacs

http://www.parens-of-the-dead.com/ is magic re. emacs skills with clojure
