Fork me on GitHub

I am trying to include a Git repository, using deps.edn. The REPL tells me that

2022-09-29 14:57:02.900:INFO::nREPL-session-3ca227b8-0702-4f72-8e40-837584052d45: Logging initialized @9646ms to org.eclipse.jetty.util.log.StdErrLog
Execution error (FileNotFoundException) at fabula.backend/eval1913$loading (backend.clj:1).
Could not locate ripley/html__init.class, ripley/html.clj or ripley/html.cljc on classpath.
What did I do wrong? I did include the link like this:
{:paths ["src" "resources"]
 {org.clojure/clojure     {:mvn/version "1.11.1"}
  ring/ring-core          {:mvn/version "1.9.6"}
  ring/ring-jetty-adapter {:mvn/version "1.9.6"}
  compojure/compojure     {:mvn/version "1.7.0"}
  org.clojure/data.json   {:mvn/version "2.4.0"}
  ripley/ripley           {:git/url ""
                           :git/sha "bca327a81c0ee81a979a6bdeec533ea72483515e"}
I am using Intellij with Cursive and nREPL, if you need information. I also tried to use clj -Spom, and while the generated pom.xml includes libraries from Clojars, it does not include the library from Git. I am not sure if it is the reason and in the end, how to fix it


I copied your deps.edn file and seem to be able to require the ripley.html namespace.

I don't think that a pom can contain a git dependency. I think that maven requires maven artefacts and doesn't know anything about resolving clojure tools deps dependencies, so I would expect it to not be included in a generated pom. If starting the repl from within cursive requires a pom, maybe you could start the nrepl server from a terminal and connect to it from within cursive? I'm afraid I don't know all that much about cursive.

@U0P0TMEFJ thanks! I tried to start a REPL for myself and hook Cursive's one into it, and it worked fine. I will try to report it to #cursive

FWIW, I think starting a REPL from the terminal and hooking into it from your editor is a better "pattern" for working anyway. I tend to leave my REPL running for days (or weeks) but my editors get restarted far more often.

Hi! how can i include ripley with leiningen?


Out of the box, you can't. You could try one of the git-related plugins for Leiningen, such as @U38C71QAH (or you could switch your project over to deps.edn and the official Clojure CLI).

Some advice regarding libraries needed: I want to scrape data off from a web site and store it locally…. as a toy project and to learn clojure… should I stick with apache http client and jsoup for now or would you recommend a more clojury library as replacement? How about storing / querying data? thx!

Ben Sless17:09:25

If you're just reading data, slurp the URI


it’s not really a site meant to be slurped 🙂 so yea I will have to do quite a bit of parsing to isolate the bits I need. I would also have to follow links that lead to other pages so forth..


(let’s say it is a toy project but with a specific purpose in mind )


usually preferrable to find the api that the site itself uses and use that if possible


hato + jsoup


or yeah slurp a uri + jsoup


(didn't know about that)


@U11BV7MTK it’s a regular website I go with slurp + jsoup. merci
