This week I am indulging in some of my own interests with data science, as I need a bit of a mental break from the books and video creation (quite exhausting that is). Unfortunately I didnt get further funding fom Clojurist Together, so may need to take work else where as it was my only source of income.

I am looking at a Clojure project called notespace which can create a journal (i.e. like jupyter journals in python) from a Clojure namespace. I've started a new Clojure project that launches notespace and portal automatically (when using Clojure CLI ools - start manually if using Leiningen). notespace has a watcher, so as you add top level forms to the namespace and save the file the journal automatically updates. I've included portal as a data brower as its the simplest one to use that isnt tool specific. This should be useful to navigating data sets and understand how to work with the data to get good results to show in the journal. I will be adding to this project during the week if you are interested.

I found an unusual edge case when using VS Code Calva and the practicalli/clojure-deps-edn aliases. Calva requires a repl connection sequence to be added to use the user level aliases and it seems somewhere in there it trips up on kebab-case alias names


Hey, just wanted to say thanks for all the material, and shame on the world if you have to spend time working instead 😉 I just recently realized the quality and amount of content you have put out and am really impressed and make very good use of it. Thanks for everything and rock on, whatever happens! 😀

@mattias504 So very kind, thank you. I will still be doing work on the contents for Practicalli, but not sure if I can still work on it full time like I have for most of this year.

I'd like to add my thanks as well. You've created valuable resources for the community that help beginners get up and running. Rest up and switch to looking after your household income :thumbsup:
