Hi, one thing that I "know"/assume is that clojure -Ttools execution is not affected by any deps.edn file present in the $PWD, is that correct? i.e. any dependency or other piece of data in $PWD/deps.edn should not affect the classpath that clojure -Ttools will use If so, can one count on that as contractual behavior?


Context: I want to make -Ttools one of the very few recommended ways to run which is very much classpath-sensitive

if you use -T, that will remove the :deps and :paths from the deps.edn in building the classpath

-Ttool runs with a classpath that is based on :paths ["."] and :deps {<the-tool-as-dep>}


Yes it's in the right direction paths . might be not exactly ideal though, as it seems to augment the classpath. I just want a program that never has extra deps/paths, regardless of $PWD. i.e. its classpath should be always the same. Would it be possible to not set the :paths at all? With an option perhaps?


Alright, in that case for the time being, -Ttools will be one of the recommended APIs for nvd-clojure but not the only one. Would gladly revisit the topic at a later point (and if you are so generous, would appreciate being pinged about it if there are any changes in this area)

yeah, I'm not going to remember that sorry :)

so, I believe this is what you want
