proxy-plus

proxy+ is a replacement for Clojure's proxy that's faster and more usable. proxy has a strange implementation where it overrides every possible method and uses a mutable field to store a map of string -> function for dispatching the methods. This causes it to be unable to handle methods with the same name but different arities.

proxy+ fixes these issues with proxy. Usage is like reify, and it's up to 10x faster.

Latest version

The latest release version of proxy-plus is hosted on Clojars:

Current Version

Usage

This library provides the macro proxy+. The first argument is fields to provide to the superclass's constructor. Next comes reify-like definitions to provide overrides. When extending a base class, the base class should come first. Example usage:

(proxy+ [super-arg1 super-arg2]
  BaseClass
  (foo [this] -1)
  (foo [this a b] (+ a b))

  SomeInterface
  (bar [this a b c] (* a b c))

  SomeInterface2
  (bar [this] 100)
  )

Benchmark

The code for this benchmark is in scripts/benchmarks.clj.
