# share-your-work
We open sourced our Clojure computational notebook library, Clerk, today. Here's an example of combining Clerk with my WikiData wrapper, Mundaneum, to interactively ask for some physicists and what they invented/discovered. Not bad.

Once more I wish I could use Clojure for my work! The four problems that Clerk addresses are exactly the ones that make me dislike Jupyter. And one of them (no out-of-order execution) would be hard/impossible to port to languages that emphasize mutable data structures.

hi @Jack Rusher could you put your example(Mundaneum) in a separate repository so one could jump right into it? So a Empty repository only with deps to clear and mundaneum? I'm still only familiar with clojure dependency mechanism using project clj so I could not try this out although I would love to!
@curious_reader I'm planning to put a few examples of different fun things in a repo soon. 🙂

This repo has a bunch of example notebooks showing off various Clerk features. Currently, the documentation assumes you are a Clojure dev with your own preferred setup. I'll add better docs in the coming days, along with more examples. 🙂 (The WikiData bits are in
). https://github.com/nextjournal/clerk-demo
