JunctionBox.ca is the personal blog of Nathan Fisher, a senior systems engineer at maxymiser.com. The Archive contains my musings on development, DevOps and IT related articles.

A typical clojure invocation will gobble up close to 500MB. If you're running a ClojureScript project that'll be 1G for figwheel and a Clojure nREPL. I think I've found an improved workflow that reduces that memory pressure.
