@bhauman it would be handy if a post build hook could be a fn. Just about to read the source to figure out if that's basically already valid and I need to turn off config validation.

dominicm 2020-05-18T13:11:02.288400Z

My use-case is that I'm using a locally scoped fn inside of an integrant component so I have access to a promise I created, which I use to make sure I only start one webpack watcher.

I have a workaround for now, so no rush

dominicm 2020-05-18T13:47:09.288600Z

Hacky workaround is to use with-local-vars to bind it it into a clojure.lang.Var


I'm trying to understand figwheel-main. I've got to a stage where I have a simple layout

β”œβ”€β”€ deps.edn
β”œβ”€β”€ deps.edn~
β”œβ”€β”€ foo-dash.cljs.edn
β”œβ”€β”€ resources
β”‚Β Β  └── public
β”‚Β Β      β”œβ”€β”€ css
β”‚Β Β      β”‚Β Β  └── style.css
β”‚Β Β      └── index.html
β”œβ”€β”€ src
β”‚Β Β  └── foo_dash
β”‚Β Β      └── core.cljs
my foo-dash.cljs.edn looks like this:
^{:css-dirs ["resources/public/css"]}                                                                   
{:main foo_dash.core}    
My deps.edn
{:deps {com.bhauman/figwheel-main {:mvn/version "0.2.5"}
        com.bhauman/rebel-readline-cljs {:mvn/version "0.1.4"}
        reagent {:mvn/version "1.0.0-alpha2"}}
 :paths ["src" "target" "resources"]}
I run:
$ clojure -m figwheel.main
I get the main figwheel webpage and a repl. Nice, that works. But when I do:
$ clojure -m figwheel.main --build foo-dash --repl
I see my index.html, but no repl... What am I doing wrong here that I never get a REPL?

@qmstuart does a browser pop open?


it does, and it disp;lays my Hello, World! with red text from my css

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:18:13.298400Z

and if you reload the browser no change?




I think I'm obviously misunderstanding how the .edn files are used

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:19:11.299700Z

I think you are doing ok actually

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:19:24.300100Z

look in the web inspector console of the browsers devtools


Loading failed for the &lt;script&gt; with source "<http://localhost:9500/cljs-out/cruel-main.js>".
Why it would be looking for a file from the tutorial I went through?


ah, i bet i've copied the index.htnml


and not chnaged it

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:21:56.301800Z


bhauman 2020-05-18T22:22:35.302600Z

yeah if you get rid of the index.html entirely it should work


how should i be naming things? I've noticed I put _ and - in my folder names, which is confusing me.


should i avoid - and _ ?

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:23:08.303300Z

that’s a clojure thing


or just treat it how I do in Clojure when using dashes and underscores with namespaces


oh, so its just the same?

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:23:20.304Z




bhauman 2020-05-18T22:24:10.304800Z

did you see what I said about getting rid of the index.html entirely?

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:24:20.305100Z

figwheel will make one for you

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:24:53.305700Z

and it provides a div on the page with an β€œapp” id that you can write to

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:25:11.306Z

thats to help you bootstrap

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:25:38.306600Z

once things get rolling you can create your own html page with a reference to your main.js

bhauman 2020-05-18T22:26:02.307100Z

but if you use the figwheel index page first its easy to copy it and modify it


great, thanks!


i'm pretty new to front end stuff
