Programming with Clojure in Max…

This is one of the topics that will be discussed at
this years Expo74. Unfortunately, I can not make it to
New York. But I am still very interested in knowing
more.

Is Clojure a language that is currently supported in Max5?
Are there any examples our there the demonstrate how to
use Clojure in Max?

Thanks,
Anthony

It might already run in Max, as the website states, the compiled code is JVM code, which should theoretically run in mxj~…

Does any one have a link to an example that I can run in Max5?

There is indeed a Clojure object for Max. It’s similar to Python-in-Max (http://www.loadbang.net/space/Software/net.loadbang.jython) since Clojure and Jython are both hosted in the Java JVM, and there’s a lot of common support code, but the Clojure compiler is a rather odd beast and there are some issues I need to work round and test before it’s ready for prime time.

“Ready for prime time” in this case means by Expo ’74 if not before. If I get some spare moments I may roll it out earlier.
