The most common packages like React will continue to be maintained in Cljsjs.
But there are better alternatives for using JS libraries.
Maintainers might still accept PRs but if you are just adding a library for
use in your application, consider alternatives before creating a PR.
- To allow easy use of JS libraries from Cljs -> No longer needed
- To ensure there is only single copy of the JS library in classpath -> Still relevant, in some cases
- Centralized repository needs maintainers to review and merge PRs
- Outdated tooling, open issues with tooling
Use shadow-cljs or
ClojureScript with Webpack to
directly consume npm packages. You always get access to up-to-date versions.
Depending on your library, you could just require that the consumers of your
library use shadow-cljs or webpack to provide requires JS libraries. If you
need to ensure users can use the library with foreign-libraries, you could
package the JS library yourself as a JAR, same as what cljsjs does, but you can
do this yourself using Leiningen or clj.
Compared to Cljsjs, you need to create a bit of tooling yourself, but you are
free to update the JS library yourself.
them from within ClojureScript.
All packages provided by cljsjs provide
files that will be automatically picked up by the ClojureScript
compiler as of 0.0-2727. Versions of the Jar reflect the
version of the packaged JS lib.
You can find the specific coordinates for those packages in their
