Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Namespaces, part of Learning Clojure.
- Namespaces are another feature…that I've been talking about a whole lot…throughout this course without actually defining.…To put it briefly, namespaces are where vars live.…When you define a var, it goes into a namespace.…And you can reference a var by either typing…out the whole namespace name slash the var name,…or just if you're in that namespace,…just giving the var's name as a symbol.…Interning is a word used to describe,…in a lot of the Clojure documentation,…to describe adding a var to a namespace.…
And that's all it is.…It's not actually a var that has…to fetch coffee for the other vars…because it's just getting into the namespace.…Namespaces play a critical role…in how your program starts.…You can require a namespace…by saying require and either giving the namespace…inside of a set of vectors, which is the preferred form,…or doing just require and the namespace's name.…Note the quotes in both cases.…We don't want to evaluate the namespace.…So, requiring is important, because this is the thing…that causes the namespace to get loaded.…
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.
