clj-native: C FFI for Clojure

Enlive tutorial

HTML scraping and templating in Clojure:

http://github.com/swannodette/enlive-tutorial

Enlive presents a different approach from the more popular templating solutions:

  • Code and markup are completely separate.
  • You get to use CSS
 like syntax to manipulate HTML.
  • Template inheritance isn’t some fancy trick, it’s just function composition.
  • You have access to the full power of Clojure to manipulate your templates (yes, macros!).

Instead of impressing focus groups, designers should do a thought experiment: Imagine what Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ive would have to say about your interface.
