There's now a Google Group for discussion and questions.
Here's a brief tutorial that covers some Seesaw basics. It assumes no knowledge of Swing or Java.
Here's the slides from a Clojure/West 2012 talk on the Seesaw. Best viewed in Chrome or Safari.
See the Seesaw Wiki and the Seesaw API Docs for more detailed docs. Note that the docs in the code (use the
doc function!) are always the most up-to-date and trustworthy.
Seesaw is a library/DSL for constructing user interfaces in Clojure. It happens to be built on Swing, but please don't hold that against it.
Seesaw is compatible with Clojure 1.4, but will probably work fine with 1.3 and 1.5. Maybe even 1.2.
(listbox :model (range 100))
:background "#00f", or
:size [640 :by 480].
There are numerous Seesaw examples in test/seesaw/test/examples.
Here's how you use Seesaw with Leiningen
lein as described and then:
$ lein new hello-seesaw $ cd hello-seesaw
Add Seesaw to
(defproject hello-seesaw "1.0.0-SNAPSHOT" :description "FIXME: write" :dependencies [[org.clojure/clojure "1.4.0"] [seesaw "x.y.z"]])
Replace the Seesaw version with whatever the latest version tag is. See below!
Now edit the generated
(ns hello-seesaw.core (:use seesaw.core)) (defn -main [& args] (invoke-later (-> (frame :title "Hello", :content "Hello, Seesaw", :on-close :exit) pack! show!)))
Now run it:
$ lein run -m hello-seesaw.core
NOTE: Here's how you can run against the bleeding edge of Seesaw:
lein installto build it. Note that Seesaw uses Leiningen 2 as of 3 NOV 2012!
project.cljfile, change the Seesaw version to
X.Y.Z-SNAPSHOTto match whatever's in Seesaw's
lein deps… actually you can just start coding.
lein depsis almost never necessary.
