Knockbox, an Eventual Consistency Toolkit

Sign up for weekly Clojure tips, software design, and a Clojure coding challenge.

Reference: Knockbox, an Eventual Consistency Toolkit

I originally dismissed Knockbox as yet another concurrency paradigm for Clojure. But after watching this lecture by its creator, I have changed my mind. The few use cases he gives are enough to convince me that I may someday use it, if only to give a bit of structure to edit conflict resolution.

It appears to follow the Clojure library trend and implements work from a published academic paper.

I will keep it in mind when I want lock-free eventual consistency.
