[adzerk/bootlaces "0.1.13"] ;; latest release

Handy tasks and things for the boot Clojure build tool.

  • Provides build-jar, push-snapshot, and push-release tasks
  • Parses a gpg.edn file to configure GPG keyring and key ID for jar signing.

This is an example build and deployment workflow. It showcases the generality of boot. We actually use this at Adzerk, but you should fork and tailor it for your own organization.


Add bootlaces to your build.boot dependencies and require the namespace:

(set-env! :dependencies '[[adzerk/bootlaces "X.Y.Z" :scope "test"]])
(require '[adzerk.bootlaces :refer :all])

Then initialize bootlaces with the project version:

(def +version+ "0.0-2371-5")
(bootlaces! +version+)

Some things you can do in the terminal:

# build and install project jar file
boot build-jar
# set environment variables
export CLOJARS_USER=foo
export CLOJARS_PASS=bar
# deploy snapshot to clojars
boot build-jar push-snapshot
# deploy release to clojars
boot build-jar push-release


The gpg.edn file format:

{:keyring "/path/to/secring.gpg"
 :user-id "Micha Niskin <>"}

gpg.edn can be global, sourced fom your home directory, or local to your project. Local gpg.edn takes precedence over global one.
