    The author's next choice is "Janet", which I haven't heard of:

    Not sure how it is better than Ruby. But maybe the author wants something fresh to play with - that I can totally relate to. Good luck with the new journey anyway!

  • planck

    Stand-alone ClojureScript REPL

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • babashka

    Native, fast starting Clojure interpreter for scripting

  • nbb

    Scripting in Clojure on Node.js using SCI

    I prefer to use nbb[0] for this, or babashka[1] when I need to use stuff specific to JVM.
