Flurfunk server

The Flurfunk server is written in Clojure, and built using Leiningen. It provides a REST API for use by clients.

Building and running

Installing Leiningen 2

curl -O
chmod +x lein
mv lein ~/bin/ # Make sure that ~/bin/ exists and is on the $PATH

Running the tests

lein test

Running the server

lein ring server-headless [port]

Creating a WAR

lein ring uberwar flurfunk-server.war

This will create target/flurfunk-server.war.

Creating a standalone JAR that includes Jetty

lein uberjar

Running the standalone JAR

java -jar target/flurfunk-server.jar

Using a persistent database

Messages are per default stored in memory. There are two options for a persistent storage:


Flurfunk requires PostgreSQL 9.1 or above, and the hstore addon.

Create a user flurfunk with password flurfunk and a database flurfunk, or include the system property flurfunk.db.url to a JDBC URL string like this:


Then run the server with the flurfunk.db system property set to postgresql, like this (optionally including the extra url parameter from above):

JAVA_OPTS="-Dflurfunk.db=postgresql" lein ring server-headless


mkdir temp
cd temp
curl -O

Then launch the fleetdb server:


Finally, run the server with the flurfunk.db system property set to fleetdb, like this:

JAVA_OPTS="-Dflurfunk.db=fleetdb" lein ring server-headless
