Hello everyone, This week I have been updating the Practicalli Clojure book, specifically the Getting Started section which covers further details of how to set up Clojure CLI tools and configure deps.edn to use a range of community addons. I've also included the Clojure inspector and the Cognitect REBL browser. There are also examples of how to set up a deps.edn project with component systems such as mount. I've also added a lot of the learning about Clojure spec from the study groups into the Practicalli Clojure book. I have added a card game project that has data and functional specifications and also instruments those functions to check arguments against specifications in function calls. I have also added Sheilds to the website for each book so you can see a running total of commits, content ideas and pull requests. Each shield links to the respective tab on the GitHub project.
