A curated collection of answers that Rich gave throughout the history of Clojure

Rich Already Answered That!

A list of commonly asked questions, design decisions, reasons why Clojure is the way it is as they were answered directly by Rich (even when from many years ago, those answers are pretty much valid today!). Feel free to point friends and colleagues here next time they ask (again). Answers are pasted verbatim (I've made small adjustments for readibility, but never changed a sentence) from mailing lists, articles, chats.

How to use:

  • The link in the table of content jumps at the copy of the answer on this page.
  • The link on the answer itself points back at the original post.

Debouncing redux thunk actions.
View debounced-redux-thunk-action.js
// A common redux pattern when dealing with async functions is to use thunk.
// This usually means your action returns a new function instead of an action object,
// and the thunk middleware will make it all work. Example:
const asyncAction = () => dispatch => setTimeout(() => dispatch(someOtherAction()), 10000);
// Now: maybe that async stuff going on is calling some API which you don't want to overload
// with request, and that's what debounce is for.
// This is an example of a debounced function which will only be calleable once every second.
import { debounce } from 'lodash';
const debouncedFn = debounce(() => callApi(), 1000, { leading: true, trailing: false });

Friendly URLs in Rails

Friendly URLs

By default, Rails applications build URLs based on the primary key -- the id column from the database. Imagine we have a Person model and associated controller. We have a person record for Bob Martin that has id number 6. The URL for his show page would be:


But, for aesthetic or SEO purposes, we want Bob's name in the URL. The last segment, the 6 here, is called the "slug". Let's look at a few ways to implement better slugs.
