Fork me on GitHub

Kinda gives you a way to have a parameterized debug build or such.


interesting idea. I guess we’ll see some best practices emerge around primary and dependent aliases

This is probably a silly question. Should it be possible to clone clojure locally and use it via deps.edn via :local/root?


Nope! It has Java in

Thanks. Not really surprised. I did get it working by building first (e.g. ant install) and pointing at the jar with

{:deps {org.clojure/clojure {:local/root "/Users/olivergeorge/repos/fork-clj/clojure/target/clojure-1.10.0-master-SNAPSHOT.jar"}}}

Was wondering more broadly how easy it was getting to tweak clojure source and see it in a REPL.

I do something similar when working on Clojure

Cool. Pretty productive given the clojure build process is all of 10s on a 4yo macbook
