I haven’t had hot-reloading for my Clojure project until last week. Working on a frontend project the week before, reminded me how powerful fast feedback loops can be. Make a change and instantly see its effect. No restarting a server or rerunning a query. Those break your development flow. They’re just un-fun. Now for the http-kit based project I expected it to be a bit of a hassle to get it working. But the Clojure world doesn’t treat code reloading as an afterthought. Added a middleware behind an environment flag and it-just-worked.
