Getting started with clojure is not the best experience. It seems like it was a crummy experience a few years ago, clojure’s noob attraction problem. It is a bit better than it used to be, but not by much.
1. The REPL sucks. You cannot arrow up to bring back previous entries. Seems like a small thing until you don’t have it.
2. Starting clojure sucks. Give me a .bat or a bash script to start it. It is not a big deal to create one, but then you must know how to create one.
I am sticking with it. However, having an easy way to install and run clojure would be helpful for experienced programmer and critical for beginners to programming who want to try clojure.
