Hello, I have to interact with an internal maven repository that exposes only http. I have upgraded to boot 2.8.3 and, as expected, I have the error "Tried to use insecure HTTP repository without TLS". Now, following the wiki, I tried to register a wagon for the "http" scheme at the beginning of my build.boot but I still get the error.

(merge-env! :dependencies '[[com.cemerick/pomegranate "1.1.0"]])
(require 'cemerick.pomegranate.aether)
(cemerick.pomegranate.aether/register-wagon-factory!
  "http" #(org.apache.maven.wagon.providers.http.HttpWagon.))

Hey everyone! So Im trying to figure out lein vs boot for my project and I wanted to ask: Figwheel seems to be very much a lein thing? When I try to use the figwheel template in boot, it simply makes a leiningen project. Are there any boot alternatives that work nicely? Bonus: I want to make a web app consisting of a client, a server and a database. I know I'd like to use reagent, but I'm very new to this whole setup. Can anyone reccomend me the packages I need? I think I need to use Ansible, but is that it?

alandipert18:07:13

maybe others have more recent knowledge, but my understanding is that things related to figwheel are generally lein-centric, so lein might be a better choice if that’s your primary interest

ashley18:07:33

It's not figwheel itself, but rather the idea of the page hot reloading. It's quite nice to see changes as you work. However, I think there's a way you can make boot watch for changes and reload when needed, but I don't think that'd do the nice compilation error message that fig does

alandipert18:07:57

ah, yes, boot’s watch task in combination with the cljs task give you something like the figwheel experience

alandipert18:07:14

is this your first clojure project?

ashley18:07:20

It is indeed. I've done a lot of clojure on hackerrank, but yeah this is the first time I've done something from scratch. I helped with braid.chat a little bit and figwheel was a nice and easy way to get going. I was interested in learning boot as it does seem nice to use from my limited understanding

alandipert18:07:23

cool, yeah i like it 😄 i haven’t used it myself for some time, but traditionally it’s more involved to get things started (vs lein), and so i was going to suggest lein instead for a starter project. but it sounds like you know what you’re getting into

ashley18:07:45

unfortunately fig is a bit of a deal breaker though. I'm okay with putting in the extra effort learning boot but if it means taking away useful packages like figwheel then as a beginner it isn't such good trade you know?

alandipert18:07:57

it depends on the beginner but yeah

alandipert19:07:13

well, good luck with whichever way you go, and welcome to the party!

ashley19:07:28

thank you very much for the chat! 🙂

Hi, Would anyone know of a boot-based ring tutorial?

allentiak23:07:14

All the ones I can find use lein...
