Meltdown is a Clojure interface to Reactor, an asynchronous programming, event passing and stream processing toolkit for the JVM.

1.0.0-beta1 is a development milestone release that introduces one feature and updates Reactor to 1.0.0.M3.

Changes between 1.0.0-alpha3 and 1.0.0-beta1

Reactor Update

Reactor is updated to 1.0.0.M3.

Added dispatcher option to reactor and stream composition

When creating reactor, it’s now possible to plug in a custom dispatcher or configure an underlying dispatcher in a way that’s most suitable for your application, for example:

(ns my-app.core
  (:import [reactor.event.dispatch RingBufferDispatcher]
           [com.lmax.disruptor.dsl ProducerType]
           [com.lmax.disruptor YieldingWaitStrategy]))

;; Creates a RingBuffer Dispatcher, with a custom queue size of 4096
(def reactor (mr/create :dispatcher (RingBufferDispatcher. "dispatcher-name"
