-Seesaw's an experiment to see what I can do to make Swing funner in Clojure. It's kinda inspired by [Shoes](http://shoesrb.com/), [Stuart Sierra's Swing posts](http://stuartsierra.com/tag/swing), etc. [clojure.contrib.swing-utils](http://richhickey.github.com/clojure-contrib/swing-utils-api.html) is useful, but minimal and still means a lot of "Java-in-Clojure" coding.

+Seesaw is a library/DSL for constructing user interfaces in Clojure. It happens to be built on Swing, but please don't hold that against it. It's an experiment to see what I can do to make user interface development funner in Clojure. It's kinda inspired by [Shoes](http://shoesrb.com/), [Stuart Sierra's Swing posts](http://stuartsierra.com/tag/swing), etc. [clojure.contrib.swing-utils](http://richhickey.github.com/clojure-contrib/swing-utils-api.html) is useful, but minimal and still means a lot of "Java-in-Clojure" coding.

* Some kind of ToModel protocol for auto-converting Clojure data-structures to Swing models.
* Investigate how a framework like [cljque] (https://github.com/stuartsierra/cljque) might fit in with Seesaw
