cake is a Clojure development environment for your command line. It is a build tool, a repl, a
package manager, a script launcher, and a deployment tool mixed together and baked into a single,
You can use
cake with any editor, but it goes especially well with emacs,
vi, and textmate.
cake is cross-platform. It works on OS X, Linux and Windows. Also, unlike most other JVM-based
command line tools, it is fast!
There are two ways to get Cake. If you are a user, the standalone script is easiest. If you want to
help with cake development though, you should check out the
develop branch of the git
repository. You can always access the stable version of cake, even when running from git, by adding
-S flag to your command.
~/bin/ is in your
$PATH, then execute the following command:
curl http://releases.clojure-cake.org/cake -o ~/bin/cake && chmod +x ~/bin/cake
git clone git://github.com/flatland/cake.git
bin/cake into your
Cake will bootstrap itself the first time it starts up.
Cake is compatible with most Leiningen project.clj files, so if you already have a project.clj,
you're probably ready to go. Just install Cake and then type
cake in your project root for a list
If you don't yet have a project.clj file, creating one is simple. Here's an example:
(defproject jiraph "0.2.7" :description "Embedded graph db library for Clojure." :url "http://jiraph.org" :tasks [protobuf.tasks] :dependencies [[clojure "1.2.0"] [clojure-contrib "1.2.0"] [clojure-useful "0.2.1"] [clojure-protobuf "0.3.0"] [tokyocabinet "1.2.3"]])

YourKit's Java Profiler was a terrific help to us in finding classloader memory leaks when we switched Cake to use a single JVM with a separate project classloader.
