Clojure 1.6.0 / 1.7.0-alpha4

A dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine, made famous and heavily promoted by Google's own developers
Besides the JVM, Clojure also targets CLR, the Clojure Language Runtime.

The CLR is a native implementation of Clojure on Microsoft's .Net Framework, programmed in C# and using the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR).

Before being such a big deal on the development market, Clojure started out as a simple experiment, just another Lisp dialect.

It then evolved into a mammoth must-have tool after it started being used to compiled directly to JVM bytecode, while still remaining open for editing and changes in the code in real-time.

This dynamic compilation features makes it much more usable in production environments, where Java can sometimes be annoying to work with.

Main features:

  • Supported at runtime
  • Allows truly dynamic development patterns
  • Enables functional programming
  • Enables concurrent programming
  • Hosted on the JVM
