There are a couple generic ideas we have in this area that we will be working on, not sure yet if they are clj or clojure.main

dominicm06:05:15

The composition is important I think. I don't want to maintain a clj for every project I work on.

I find writing a little clj file for custom stuff pretty convenient. I wouldn't say no to more systematic approaches if clj adds them. Just saying, it's not that bad to have a .clj file

didibus08:05:39

It means everyone who knows Clojure can understand the build script, since it's just a clj file. As opposed to having to learn some new configuration system.

didibus08:05:12

The only downside is paying the startup price on every script execution.

dominicm09:05:02

Different contexts I think. A project can have a single clj file, but a user might have many they compose in different ways.

dominicm09:05:48

For example, in one project I might want to run a clj file which launches postgres in the background if it's not already started, but I want that to work alongside the project's clj file.

clj -i pg.clj -i theproject.clj

clj is for running a (single) Clojure program. It sounds like you’re trying to run multiple programs. At that point, use bash or babashka or write a generic clj tool that launches multiple programs.

I want to have side effects on the world before a program runs. Usually within the same jvm.

hello, I'm having some version conflicts problem in my project, and on trying to debug I remember on lein when we ask for the tree it suggests some exclusions to avoid dependency conflicts, is there any such tool like this for use with deps.edn dependencies?

alexmiller17:05:25

depot can help with some similar things

dominicm18:05:06

To just clarify what I was saying above ^ I'm mostly interested in dev tooling. Things like scope-capture, nrepl, etc. So I want to effect the running JVM.
