Episode #3 – Tour of the REPLs with Mike Fikes


An episode where we go on a tour of the Clojure and ClojureScript REPLs with a special guest Mr Mike Fikes.

Show Notes:

Mike helps us on our tour of the many forms of REPL as we look at

  • The technology needed to create a REPL for the web, for a specific OS
  • REPLs in editors and IDEs
  • File listening REPLs for live coding
  • REPLs that can be used in web pages to provide executable documentation
  • Fun ways to use REPLs for music, graphics and even 3D games

We start with Mike’S interview to be a REPL Author
