We'll use Lumo, a cross-platform standalone ClojureScript compiler and Node.js environment, to create Hello as a command-line application.
In this lesson, I’ll show you how to install Lumo through NPM, invoke a function in ClojureScript, and use the println function from the core library.
Instructor: [00:00] We're going to create a ClojureScript command line app on Node the easy way with Lumo. The first thing we need to do is make sure we have Lumo installed. I'm using NPM to install it.
[00:17] You can see that the NPM package is Lumo-cljs, but the executable that we get is just called Lumo. If you're interested in installing it in a different way, such as Homebrew or Docker, have a look at this web page. Now we're going to go to the program itself.
[00:38] We're going to call our program Hello.cljs. The first thing we want to do in our script is use the environment to set Lumo as the interpreter for our script. Now comes the script itself. The program consists of this one line.
[01:00] In ClojureScript, we invoke a function, in this case, print line, by setting it as the first item in a parenthesized list. The remaining items in the list, in this case, the single string Hello Node, are the arguments to the function.
Doesn't work, unfortunately. Installing lumo via npm does not add it to an env,
env: lumo: No such file or directory
Also, no brew formula found for lumo, I think this course is massively outdated
Yes, it appears that lumo is no longer available via brew, but installing it with npm still works. Npm installs lumo in /usr/local/bin. Env will find lumo if that directory is in your PATH.
