Pedestal is a web application framework written in Clojure that aims to bring both the language and its principles (Simplicity, Power and Focus) to client and server-side development. This project is client-side specific.

Status of Pedestal-app:

This repository is an archival copy of the original pedestal-app project. See the Google Group's message "So what's happening with Pedestal 0.3.0?" for more information.

We are not actively developing or accepting new features, but we will accept bug fixes submitted by the community.

If you're interested in carrying pedestal-app forward, we encourage you to fork this repository and make any changes you see fit. Once you've got something, share it with the rest of the group–many folks are interested in the future of pedestal-app's ideas.

Getting started

Starting a new project

Use leiningen (2.2.0+) to create a new Pedestal application. This will automatically pull templates from

# To create a new client-side application:
lein new pedestal-app the-next-big-thing

See documentation for information on Pedestal concepts and advice on getting started.

Digging deeper


Our primary focus for the near future is Pedestal documentation, sample applications and improving general ease of use.


In the future, the documentation will be moved into this repository.

  • Pedestal documentation overview of Pedestal concepts and advice on getting started.
  • API Docs: generate literate-programming-style API docs by following the "What about API Documentation?" instructions in the Pedestal Overview.

Supported Platforms

At present Pedestal supports OSX and Linux environments. At this time we do not support using Pedestal on a Windows environment.

Some good news: We will still gladly accept pull requests extending our Windows support

The bad news: We will not invest significant amounts of time into diagnosing or correcting Windows issues.
