Welle Is a ClojureWerkz Project
Welle is part of the group of Clojure libraries known as ClojureWerkz, together with
and many others.
Welle has been around since 2011. The API is generally stable with some (badly needed) breaking changes coming in 2.0.
CI is hosted by travis-ci.org
Welle uses Leiningen 2. Make sure you have it installed and then run tests against all supported Clojure versions using
lein all test
Then create a branch and make your changes on it. Once you are done with your changes and all tests pass, submit a pull request on Github.
