Generated script contains hardcoded classpath #95

The generated script, swank-clojure, contains a hardcoded path to another user's jar. This is using the standalone installer with 1.3.2.



Same thing here. Produces this error:

Switched in ${HOME} for /home/phil and after realizing a port is a required parameter, things seem to work.


I'm not seeing this on 1.4.0-SNAPSHOT with leiningen 1.7.0-SNAPSHOT although the first classpath component in my wrapper script is hard-coded to my own homedir. If that is considered a bug, it's a bug in leiningen rather than swank-clojure as lein handles installation of shell wrappers. @zentrope which version of leiningen did you use?


I'm using clojure 1.3.0, leiningen 1.6.2, and swank-clojure 1.3.4. If there's another plugin I can test-install that uses the same mechanism, let me know and I'll report it here.


Ok, I'm also seeing that /home/phil now with either 1.6.2 or 1.7.0-SNAPSHOT if I install swank-clojure 1.3.4 from clojars. However, if I install 1.3.4 from a local checkout I see my own hard-coded /home/tavis.

That line is coming from here I'm not seeing where the first $HOME is being expanded.


Fixed on my fork of leiningen 1.x. See technomancy/leiningen#367
