Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Binding and destructuring, part of Learning Clojure.
- Most places in the Clojure language…that let you define names…also allow you to define names…for portions of a data structure that are passed in.…These are just little shortcuts…and you could accomplish them by writing get…or looking things up in a vector…and then binding names separately.…They're just a convenience…that makes the code easier to read…and a little faster to write.…I want to introduce them here just enough…so that you can spot them when you encounter them in code.…They work most places that introduce names, let bindings,…and function definitions being the most common,…and they're usually used with maps and sequences.…
They can work with most anything.…So, in this example below, in this let expression,…notice we have one name value pair,…A normal let expression might say something…like let A be five.…In this case, in the name position of the name value pair,…I've put a sequence of the symbol A, the symbol B,…the variadic argument symbol ampersand the rest.…So, this means that this is expecting a sequence…
Arthur Ulfeldt covers the Leiningen build tool and setting up Clojure to work with the IntelliJ IDEA dev environment. He then reviews the basics of the syntax, including functions, expressions, values, macros, strings, and conditionals. He shows how to structure, compile, and deploy Clojure projects in Leiningen, and pull from Clojure's core library. In the final chapters, Arthur explores references and namespaces and points to resources to learn more about Clojure.
