To take advantage of the modularity allowed by git, and by tools such as maven and leiningen, Clojure-contrib has been factored into separate git projects and maven artifacts.
This repository is kept online for historical reasons. For new development on Clojure-contrib, you should check out the following resources:
If your favorite contrib isn't in a module yet, you can help.
The user contributions library, clojure-contrib, is a collection of namespaces implementing features that may be useful to a large part of the Clojure community.
Clojure-contrib is open source under the Eclipse Public License and is copyrighted by Rich Hickey and the various contributors.
Versions of clojure-contrib are matched to versions of Clojure.
- If you are using Clojure 1.0, use clojure-contrib 1.0.
- If you are using Clojure 1.1, use clojure-contrib 1.1.
- If you are using Clojure 1.2, use clojure-contrib 1.2, or the new modular Contrib libraries.
- If you are using Clojure 1.3, use the new modular Contrib libraries.
If you downloaded a release distribution or pre-compiled JAR, you do NOT need to build anything.
If you downloaded the sources from Github, you will need Apache Maven (2.0 or higher) to run the build. See http://maven.apache.org/
AFTER version 1.2.0, clojure-contrib is divided into many small modules.
To build all the modules, run the following command in this directory:
This will compile and test all modules and store them in your local Maven repository cache (usually $HOME/.m2/repository).
There is also an "uberjar" containing all compiled modules at ./modules/complete/target/complete-$VERSION-bin.jar
Additional build commands are available:
mvn clojure:repl To start a Clojure REPL (Read-Eval-Print Loop) mvn compile To compile sources without building a JAR mvn test To run unit tests mvn assembly:assembly To build ZIP/tar distributions containing source and JARs
To skip the testing phase when building, add "-Dmaven.test.skip=true" to the mvn command line.
You can specify -Dclojure.version=VERSION on the command line to select a different Clojure version.
To build against a customized Clojure JAR, you can specify -Dclojure.jar=/absolute/path/to/clojure.jar on the command line.
