I just installed Boot on Windows 8.1 and the
boot.exe ran (and reported version 2.5.2) so I ran
boot -u and got 2.5.5 and I’m able to run
boot repl… Going to try something a bit more advanced to see if "Boot on Windows 8.1" is a working thing!
Good luck with that @seancorfield --been having no issues with windows 10 of late, but I know that isn't good enough for commercial, at least for now.
@micha can't we make that a default? You unx guys can just say =yes for improved performance. But having the default fail on windows is not a good thing.
Runs fine (on both Windows 10 and Windows 8.1) without
BOOT_EMIT_TARGET. I had to set
BOOT_HOME explicitly (to avoid the Parallels shared folder thing).
it would change the default behavior of boot, the specific change is that files are not automatically emitted to the target directory
I git cloned a project and was able to
boot repl in it as well as
boot build (pom, jar, install) and that all worked on Windows 8.1
I just installed
boot.exe on Windows XP, set
BOOT_HOME to a sensible place, and was able to run
boot -u (to get 2.5.5) and
boot repl to get a working REPL.
Yup, created a project on Windows XP with a
build.boot file and Boot 2.5.5 happily runs it etc. Looks good.
(yes, I am a masochist for having an Emacs / Clojure dev environment on Windows XP for testing!)
My Clojure setup on WinXP is pretty primitive, although I finally just updated from Lein 2.3.2 to 2.5.3, but it’s still on Java 7 and Emacs 24.1
(that WinXP VM exists purely to run MS SQL Server Express so I can test
java.jdbc against SQL Server as a matter of course)
Hi Sean It's good to see the momentum growing. I saw that the modern-cljs tutorial uses boot now.
Yeah, I haven’t done anything with cljs for a long time (we actually just deleted our proof of concept project that we built with Reagent / Sente ages ago since we’re no longer going in that direction).
But we had hit a wall with Leiningen and Boot gives us the flexibility we need, hence all my activity around it this past few weeks. We’re very committed to it now
@micha Looks like there is an OSX issue with the latest version of boot, so far as I can make out. Please see https://github.com/hoplon/hoplon/issues/81
would any have
[jonase/eastwood "0.2.3"] jar resting somewhere in the local maven repo you can share here (attach) while clojars is down? I am adding
but it is harder to do without a jar
