Basic example of using netty with Clojure

branch: master


Playing with netty in Clojure.


lein deps
lein run

Source origin

Sending a message

The default port is 5000. You can telnet to localhost 5000 and send the server a message which it will print to the server's console (so of course open up two terminals). If 5000 doesn't work, start the server a second time (while the first is still running) and you should get an error message with the port number.


/dev/clojure-netty cvig (master)$ telnet localhost 5000
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
