asystant is a library for building modular event-driven systems with core.async. By defining modules as simple, declarative maps we can build easily modifiable, testable systems. Using a simple in/out API on top of core.async we can trivially build composable, flexible applications while also providing ready-to-use tools for logging, system visualisation and monitoring.
This talk will explore challenges encountered while developing with Clojure, and the process of designing and refining a lightweight, testable basis for rapid iteration and prototyping. Through rigorous adherence to modularity, without losing sight of the system as a whole, I will demonstrate how we can rapidly build a network of modules from simple functions.
From this early release we will take a look at possible future directions for asystant, including further visualisation, monitoring and verification.
