Clojure Deref (July 23, 2021)

23 July 2021

Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)


I started the week by writing a post about the new Clojure library and how to add support for building artifacts using this new tool in our collective Clojure utility belt. The discussion is framed around moving from a small Leiningen project.clj file to a build.clj that uses and the Clojure CLI to do its thing.

Libraries and tools

Some interesting library and tool updates and posts this week:

  • Cider 9 - Cider turned 9 years old! A fantastic tool from Bozhidar Batsov and his team of contributors. Thank you!

  • Lambda Island - An overview of some of the great tools and libraries coming from Lambda Island in July.

  • test-runner 0.4.0 - Cognitect-Labs test-runner gets a bump.

  • 0.1.6 - Building artifacts in Clojure

Training and hiring

  • Brave Clojure Jobs - A redesign is underway and in beta for this great jobs resource for the Clojure community and it looks great!

Video throwback

Rich Hickey’s 2016 Clojure/conj keynote entitled Spec-ulation is a deep discussion on growth versus breakage in software and well worth another look.
