Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the Leiningen Build Tool, part of Learning Clojure.
- So I'd just like to take a moment…to say how much I appreciate the Leiningen Build Tool.…There was a time when we wrote Clojure without it.…And it was nasty, brutish and fortunately, brief.…Leiningen does a whole lot of really important…and really good things for me when I'm coding.…It gets the libraries I need…in my code at the right version.…If I go to another computer,…it brings those same libraries…to this project there.…If I work on someone else's code,…it brings the libraries that they needed.…It starts your project when you're working on it,…starts the REPLs that your IDE…or development tool connects to.…
It's what builds the actual finished product…that you either publish to the web…or run on a web server.…And, as a whole, for projects,…it can show you what's going on,…what was created where…and help keep things sane.…There's another up-and-coming build tool named Boot.…You might want to be aware of it.…Some people choose to use it.…Let's cruise on over to the example files for this chapter.…Ah! There aren't any.…
Arthur Ulfeldt covers the Leiningen build tool and setting up Clojure to work with the IntelliJ IDEA dev environment. He then reviews the basics of the syntax, including functions, expressions, values, macros, strings, and conditionals. He shows how to structure, compile, and deploy Clojure projects in Leiningen, and pull from Clojure's core library. In the final chapters, Arthur explores references and namespaces and points to resources to learn more about Clojure.
