Justin Smith speaks the truth about Caribou. I’m also one of the team members, and although we did lose our funding, we’re all still around and there are a number of active Caribou projects alive and well. It does have everything Justin says, and yes, it’s imperfect, but it’s also very easy to get a site up and running quickly. But you don’t lose the modularity that we all love in the Clojure world. You can use just part of it (we know of numerous people using Polaris for routing, for example, and nothing else at all from the Caribou ecosystem) or all of it if you want. The CRUD UI in the admin tool is handy but a bit on the clunky side (for historical reasons which I won’t go into here) but can be customised quite easily if you have a decent UI/UX person to do it. When we had our funding, we were all very invested in the project and are deeply proud of what we were able to achieve in a relatively short timespan. We also have the best URL :)
