This is the frontend application that powers Witan, the open city planning tool.

To Develop

To get an interactive development environment run:

WITAN_API_URL=http://{host:port} lein figwheel

and open your browser at localhost:3449. The environmental variable WITAN_API_URL is used to specify a location for the API. This will auto compile and send all changes to the browser without the need to reload. After the compilation process is complete, you will get a Browser Connected REPL. An easy way to try it is:

(js/alert "Am I connected?")

and you should see an alert in the browser window.

In a separate terminal, run:

lein garden auto

This will update any chances to CSS styles (in the styles directory) and figwheel will automatically apply them.

To clean all compiled files:

lein clean

A Full REPL Experience

Cider -> Figwheel -> Piggiback -> CLJS -> JSload

A .dirs-local.el file is used to set the cljs repl to figwheel.

Before starting a repl make sure to set the env vars.

(setenv "WITAN-API-URL" "staging-api.witanforcities.com")
(setenv "WITAN-API-SECURE" "True")

Now you can jack into the app with cider-jack-in-clojurescript. That provides two REPLS one for Clojure and one for Clojurescript. And allows source buffer evaluation and result return. Tasty!

The env vars above are baked into the build so you can either do a C-x C-e on the (def config... in witan.ui.data to force the configuration OR before launching the REPL's do a lein clean to clear things down.
