Leiningen plugin to execute tasks on sub-projects


Lein 2 users

Either install as a plugin in ~/.lein/profiles.clj:

{:user {:plugins [[lein-sub "0.2.2"]]}}

Or, specify as a plugin in project.clj:

:plugins [[lein-sub "0.2.2"]]

Leiningen 1.x users

Either install as a plugin:

$ lein plugin install lein-sub "0.1.2"

Or, include as a dev-dependency in project.clj:

:dev-dependencies [[lein-sub "0.1.2"]]


Your project may have sub-projects (each having its own project.clj file) - you can specify them as follows:

:sub ["module/foo-common" "module/dep-vendor-xyz"]

Execute the plugin as follows:

$ lein sub deps   # runs "lein deps" on each of 'foo-common' and 'dep-vendor-xyz'

$ lein sub jar      # runs "lein jar" on both
$ lein sub install  # install both sub-project artifacts to local Maven repo
$ lein clean; rm -rf lib  # clean current dependency JARs
$ lein deps && lein test  # get deps from remote and local Maven repos and run tests
