This is a Maven 2 archetype for Clojure projects.  It will generate a
new project pre-configured to use Clojure and the Clojure Maven


To install:

   git clone git://
   cd clojure-archetype
   mvn install

To use (all one line):

   mvn archetype:create \ \
     -DartifactId=your-new-project-name \
     -DarchetypeGroupId=com.stuartsierra \
     -DarchetypeArtifactId=clojure-archetype \


The generated project has source code in src/main/clojure and test
code in src/test/clojure.  The example file src/main/clojure/app.clj
demonstrates how to create a "main" Java class that can be executed at
the command line.


In addition to the standard Maven goals, you have several
Clojure-specific goals available through clojure-maven-plugin:

 * clojure:compile will ahead-of-time compile your Clojure source code
   to Java .class files

 * clojure:test will run the script at src/scripts/runtests.clj

 * clojure:repl will run a Clojure REPL

 * clojure:swank will run a SWANK server for connecting to Emacs SLIME
   (requires SWANK as a dependency)

The clojure:compile goal is bound to the Maven "compile" lifecycle,
and the clojure:test goal is bound to the Maven "test" lifecycle.

To see more available goals, run (one line):

  mvn help:describe -DgroupId=com.theoryinpractise \


By default, the generated project has dependencies on Clojure 1.0.
For dependencies on other Clojure versions, or on clojure-contrib,
uncomment the indicated sections in the generated pom.xml.
