Compiling OLA took long on Ubuntu 14.04. It finished without errors. Yesterday I had some problems running Overtone in the Leiningen REPL on Linux.
Hmm, I see, ola-clojure is completely written in Clojure using Protobuf to communicate with OLA.

That’s correct. It used to be part of Afterglow, but I pulled it out, because others might want to use OLA with Clojure.
(That was a request from the Open Lighting Architecture team, and I thought it was an excellent idea.)

Is there a programmer reference for the Launchpad Mini? I couldn't find any. The Mini is much more like a Monome Grid, with its small buttons and minimalistic design. I really like that. That it only has three colors (amber, green, red) is also ok. Maybe more constraints result in more creativity. :)

There isn’t a programmer reference, but I have determined that the Launchpad Mini is functionally identical to the Launchpad S, only in a smaller form factor, so I am able to use that programmer reference in working on my mapping (and support both models with one set of code). And yes, I am not going to try to reflect cue colors on the Mini, I will use the colors only to convey state information.
I like it too, small but functional and solid feeling! I am glad it was the model I requested on loan first, although having an Mk2 would have been more helpful in getting yours up and running.
