Build Status

Is it time.. to upgrade?

Deployed to heroku: is-it-time

A very tiny web app to check how badly you need to upgrade your dependencies. Built with Om, Sablono, cljs-ajax, awesome template chestnut and hacked bits of version-clj.

Alt text


There are a few TODOs, e.g. parsing of dependencies must be improved (1.3.0 is shown as > 1.20.0), and page needs to be refreshed to reset the dependencies. Will fix both soon unless PRs from kind people of Internet will fix them sooner. Because PRs are always wecolme :-)


Start a REPL (in a terminal: lein repl, or from Emacs: open a clj/cljs file in the project, then do M-x cider-jack-in. Make sure CIDER is up to date).

In the REPL do


The call to (run) does two things, it starts the webserver at port 10555, and also the Figwheel server which takes care of live reloading ClojureScript code and CSS. Give them some time to start.

Running (browser-repl) starts the Weasel REPL server, and drops you into a ClojureScript REPL. Evaluating expressions here will only work once you've loaded the page, so the browser can connect to Weasel.

When you see the line Successfully compiled "resources/public/is_it_time.js" in 7.825 seconds., you're ready to go. Browse to http://localhost:10555 and enjoy.

Deploying to Heroku

This assumes you have a Heroku account, have installed the Heroku toolbelt, and have done a heroku login before.

git init
git add -A
git commit
heroku create
git push heroku master:master
heroku open

Running with Foreman

Heroku uses Foreman to run your app, which uses the Procfile in your repository to figure out which server command to run. Heroku also compiles and runs your code with a Leiningen "production" profile, instead of "dev". To locally simulate what Heroku does you can do:

lein with-profile -dev,+production uberjar && foreman start

Now your app is running at http://localhost:5000 in production mode.
