A simple Clojure webapp that shows how to use Jetty, Ring, Compojure and Hiccup to build a web application.

The goal of the example code is to make it easy to start with your first web application with Clojure.

Get Started

  • lein deps
  • lein repl
  • (use 'samplewebapp.main-local)
  • (boot)
  • Open http://localhost:8080 in your web browser: you should see a welcome message. For other URLs to try take a look into routes.clj.

Run on Heroku

First create a new app at Heroku with the cedar stack: heroku create --stack cedar

To run the webapp with Heroku we need the Procfile file and main-heroku.clj.

Here is a description of how to run Clojure apps on Heroku: http://blog.heroku.com/archives/2011/7/5/clojure_on_heroku/
