Searchable, clojure examples programatically compiled from lots and lots of scraping. GetClojure extracts valid s-expressions from various locations, runs them in a sandbox, and captures the value and/or output of every s-expression. That information is saved and is made searchable via ElasticSearch.


Go to GetClojure and start searching.

Tips Welcome

Support via Gittip


In order to run locally in development mode you'll need to do the following:

  • Run ElasticSearch locally.
  • Run MongoDB locally. Find it via your package manager.
  • Run ./script/
  • Seed the Database: lein run -m getclojure.seed
  • Start the server: lein ring server
  • Compute.

Note to python 2 users

If after running the commands above you get a list of pages (numbers at the bottom) but no actual results, the database might not be populating correctly. This could be because pygments requires python 2. To ensure you have a symlink to python2 in your path (you should as of python 2.7.3), run the following command:

command -v python2

If there's no output, you'll need to make a python2 symlink, to do so, run the following command:

ln -s "$(command -v python)" /usr/local/bin/python2

Try running lein run -m getclojure.seed again and you should be in business!
