I spent so long not really "getting" Boot, but now I'm using it a lot on this new project and understand it, it's brilliant. 🙂


@chrisjd boot is the imperative build system anything that isn't basic needs. Imperative was the keyword for me in understanding why I liked it.


@dominicm Interesting - because the heart is all about pipelining?


I think I’d definitely stick to Leiningen for simpler apps (e.g. admin panel on this), but it’s a perfect fit for periodic tasks that I need to run through cron- e.g. database updates and content generation. 🙂


@chrisjd pretty much because it's targeted at assembling a pipeline, rather than getting a handful of common tasks handed to you that don't work together, except when they are randomly special
