ZeroMQ Clojure Tutorial
This is a tutorial to using the ZeroMQ message queue with Clojure.
Read the source and the tests to see examples of using ZeroMQ in Clojure. If you create more examples, please contribute a patch!
In order to use this software, ZeroMQ must be installed. Please refer to its website for details on how to install it: ZeroMQ
You need to install both ZeroMQ and the Java bindings (jzmq).
For installation on Mac OSX I found the following guides to be helpful:
- Installation using the Homebrew package manager: Setting up 0MQ for Clojure on OSX
- Manual installation: ZeroMQ and Clojure, a brief introduction
After you have installed these libraries run
lein deps lein test
You may have to edit the project.clj file to point to the correct location of the ZeroMQ libraries:
;; This sets the 'java.library.path' property ;; so Java can find the ZeroMQ dylib :native-path "/usr/local/lib"
