Introducing sweet-array: A Safer and More Efficient Array Manipulation Library for Clojure
The article introduces sweet-array, an array manipulation library for Clojure that aims to provide a safer and more efficient way of working with arrays. Clojure already has built-in support for Java arrays, but using them can often lead to verbose or inefficient code. sweet-array addresses these issues by offering a "sweet" array type notation and static type safety. With sweet-array, developers can write code that is more concise and performant. The library provides a new macro called
new that allows for easy creation of both primitive and reference type arrays. It also supports multi-dimensional arrays. The article provides examples of how to use sweet-array for array creation and manipulation. Overall, sweet-array is a valuable tool for Clojure developers looking to improve their array handling capabilities.
