Thanks to the Austin Clojure user group - we now have a great clean Clojure ClickStart - if you are curious about Clojure - give it a try - it will setup a basic web project, a repo and build.
The interesting part to me is the use of Leiningen for building - “lein” is a tightly focussed clojure build tool - which works quite well (see project.clj for details)
This app runs in the default container for now (as clojure web apps seem happy with that).
“Hiccup” is also used - which is a DSL for expressing html document trees - similar to Haml in ruby land - I am still not decided if I like this vs plain olde markup - but it is nice to see in action.
So take it for a spin ! Pretend you know Clojure !
If you want to learn more - the most excellent 4clojure site (nice pun !) is a fun way to learn.
To run this: pick it from the menu when you launch clickstarts, or browse to https://github.com/CloudBees-community/clojure-clickstart
and click the big-ass button.
