And in case anyone wonders "Why?", this is probably a good read: Clojure/core blog post Introducing ClojureScript

One interesting option now is using ClojureScript to program on top of Node.js (using ClojureScript, compiled to JavaScript). The V8 JavaScript engine behind Node.js is very high performance and has very short start up times (especially compared to Java) which makes ClojureScript + Node.js a good combination for "shell script" type programs.

That also means you can do end-to-end web applications in Clojure / ClojureScript with:
  • Google's Closure templates & library and ClojureScript for the front end
  • ClojureScript on Node.js or Clojure on JVM for the back end

    It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
