ClojureScript on Apple TV
With some minor tweaks, Ethan Sherbondy has sorted out how to get a ClojureScript environment running on the Apple TV with a non-trivial app!
What's cool is that all of the normal ClojureScript dev tooling works as expected. In particular, you can establish a REPL into your Apple TV app, manipulate its state, load new code, etc.
What changes were needed?
- Make use of master of GCDWebServer, which has support for tvOS.
- A minor tweak to Ambly's sample
AppDelegateto write to
- An update to the Ambly podspec to indicate it supports tvOS.
An update to Ambly will ultimately be released with these changes.
I never cease to be amazed by what members of the ClojureScript community put together!
Here is a demo by Ethan showing what it looks like:
