The shorthand syntax for an anonymous function in Clojure can be a bit confusing (at least it was for me when I first saw it!). In this post I'll go over what it is and show that it's actually not all that scary.
Once again I'm saved by friends in the Clojurians slack channel! This time it was viebel who answered my question in the klipse room. I really love the simplicity and ease of app.klipse.tech because it gives you an instant Clojurescript scratchpad at your fingertips. My only issue was that I didn't know how to add other ClojureScript libraries. Viebel opened my eyes to the fact that it's actually incredicibly easy to add other Clojurescript libraries, and here's how you do it!
Today is Thanksgiving, and as we close out 2017 currently especially thankful for all of these great programming languages and tools that have been created and shared. It is really incredible that anyone with (admin) access to a computer can get started with any programming language literally right now. It's just a google away. ;) Anyway, since you've come to this post I'll assume you're interested in using ClojureScript, and I won't have to bore you with how amazingly awesome and mind-expanding learning ClojureScript is because of how data-focused and simple your code becomes without the overhead of modern OOP imperative syntax. So, hold onto your keyboards because in this post I'll show you that it's not hard at all to get started with ClojureScript!
When I'm designing a web application that I want to be responsive, I frequently use the units vh and vw (which stand for viewport height and viewport width). These are great because they allow you to size things based on a percentage of the viewport height. However, sometimes you want things sized at 100% of the height or width minus a constant, and that's where the calc function comes in handy!
