Pedestal is a web application framework written in Clojure that aims to bring both the language and its principles (Simplicity, Power and Focus) to client and server-side development.
Pedestal is a collection of interacting libraries that together create a pathway for developing a specific kind of application. It empowers developers to use Clojure to build internet applications requiring real-time collaboration and targeting multiple platforms.
Pedestal may appeal to developers who have been nervously approaching a functional language but who haven’t yet mustered the courage to ask it out on a date. It provides a sterling example of how to use the Clojure ecosystem to its best advantage, reducing the friction usually associated with a language switch.
