= Clojure-contrib =

The user contributions library, clojure.contrib, is a collection of
namespaces each of which implements features that we believe may be
useful to a large part of the Clojure community.

Clojure-contrib is open source under the Eclipse Public License and is
copyrighted by Rich Hickey and the various contributors.

Download releases from

The official source repository for clojure-contrib is

Documentation and APIs are available at

Issues are maintained in the Assembla space at

General discussion occurs in the Clojure Google group at
and developer discussions are in the Clojure Dev Google group at

Compiled JARs of development snapshots are available at

= Building Clojure-contrib =

If you downloaded a release distribution or pre-compiled JAR, you
don't need to do anything.

If you downloaded the sources from Github, you will need Apache Maven
(2.0 or higher) to run the build.  See

Run the following command in this directory:

    mvn package

This will produce the file target/clojure-contrib-${VERSION}.jar that
you can add to your Java classpath.

Additional build commands are available:

    mvn clojure:repl
    To start a Clojure REPL (Read-Eval-Print Loop)

    mvn compile
    To compile sources without building a JAR

    mvn test
    To run unit tests

    mvn assembly:assembly
    To build ZIP/tar distributions containing source and JARs

To skip the testing phase when building, add "-Dmaven.test.skip=true"
to the mvn command line.

== Compiling with Local clojure.jar ==

If you want to compile/build with a customized clojure.jar file, use
the following command:

    mvn package -Dclojure.jar=/path/to/clojure.jar

The /path/to/clojure.jar MUST be an absolute path.  

Maven will still download other dependencices,
such as clojure-maven-plugin.
