NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

We have seen continued interest in Om, a ClojureScript wrapper around Facebook's ReactJS front-end programming framework. Om leverages the inherent immutability of ClojureScript, allowing automatic features like snapshots of UI state and undo. And due to the efficiency of ClojureScript's data structures, some Om applications run faster than identical ones based on the raw underlying React framework. The ecosystem of components and applications around Om is growing and our teams are starting to pick it up.

Adopting the entire Clojure stack (the Clojure and ClojureScript languages, and optionally the Datomic database) offers some advantages like immutable data structures from user interface to backend. Several frameworks have appeared in the Clojure space to leverage its unique features, but the most promising so far is Om. Om is a ClojureScript wrapper around Facebook's React JavaScript reactive programming framework. Yet Om leverages the inherent immutability of ClojureScript, allowing automatic features like snapshots of UI state and undo. And due to the efficiency of ClojureScript's data structures, some Om applications run faster than identical ones based on the raw underlying React framework. We expect significant evolution and innovation to continue around Om.
