Quilt is a ClojureScript app designed to teach kids how to program.
It lets kids make basic drawings by writing code, either in a visual editor where they select functions and fill in parameters, or in a source editor where they can actually type in the code.
Actually, it's harder to explain than it is to just show you. Give it a whirl at:
Stuff I need to add
In no particular order:
- Read drawing name from query params
- Scripted mode for teaching that will show kids where to click, step by step, to make a drawing
- Cloud load and save so kids can show off their drawings outside of class
- Nicer styling
- Functional mode
If there's something you want to see, open an issue!

Start Cider from Emacs:
Put this in your Emacs config file:
(setq cider-cljs-lein-repl "(do (use 'figwheel-sidecar.repl-api) (start-figwheel!) (cljs-repl))")
Navigate to a clojurescript file and start a figwheel REPL with
cider-jack-in-clojurescript or (
lein clean lein figwheel dev
Figwheel will automatically push cljs changes to the browser.
Wait a bit, then browse to http://localhost:3449.
lein clean lein doo phantom test once
The above command assumes that you have phantomjs installed. However, please note that doo can be configured to run cljs.test in many other JS environments (chrome, ie, safari, opera, slimer, node, rhino, or nashorn).
