In Clojure & Clojurescript development there is one tool that does all the build automation, this is called Leiningen.
Leiningen uses a declarative approach to defining a project and uses common naming conventions for projects and libraries. The build configuration is held in a file called
project.clj that lives in the root of the Clojure / Clojurescript project.
Leiningen is written in Clojure and requires the Java runtime environment (Java JRE) to run. No Java programming is required to use it.
We will cover Figwheel in more detail very soon
There are a number of really good templates to help you configure your projects as you create them. Rather than just create a project with
lein new my-project-name you can include a template,
lein new template-name my-project-name
Notable templates for Clojurescript include
Hint There is a new build automation tool called boot that takes a programatic approach to defining builds and may have some advantage if you want a highly customised build. At the moment though, this still requires more initial setup to get going than Leiningen.
