No, this isn't the first web framework in Clojure.
Many others exist before ClojureScript One like Compojure, Noir and Conjure. But this is the first one that is backed by a company (Clojure/Core).
In fact, ClojureScript One is based on Compojure web framework.
The adoption of Clojure for web applications isn't really noticeable but with this new ClojureScript One framework and the support from PaaS (Platform as a Service) like Heroku, I think we are going to see LISP humming on servers.

Another recent addition is FW/1 for Clojure (Framework One) which I recently ported to Clojure. I originally developed it in 2009 (for CFML) and it's developed a very healthy community there. I also blogged a quick guide to running FW/1 on Heroku. Like ClojureScript:One, FW/1 uses Enlive for HTML generation. I need to look at how best to integrate ClojureScript into FW/1 for the front end.

Cool! Let me know if you have any questions - and I'm always open to suggestions on new features (although it has a very well-defined "vision" based on the two years of development it has had elsewhere )
