Fork me on GitHub

FYI: Leiningen is now available for installation on Debian testing (buster)


If you're using a Debian machine please do give it a whirl and let me know if you find any issues


(It will be included in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS---I'd like to also get it into stable backports but I want to get Clojure 1.9 packaged first)

Have you looked at the new clojure tools? Would love to have those available


@alexmiller haven't looked into it yet, I generally discourage doing dev against the Debian libraries because once they go into stable the version is basically pinned (fine for e.g. Clojure but less good for frequently updated stuff)


Leiningen being available means the newest versions can be pulled down from clojars :)


on archlinux, clj utility is provided by clojure package

#tools-deps is probably a better place to talk about this subject, but I would like it to be a thing that gets better/smoother/more widely distributed


there is plans to #leiningen support deps.edn?

there is a plugin for it
