Leiningen is a build tool for Clojure. Using Leiningen has been described here and here.
Leiningen installs and runs well on Linux and Mac. As of June 2010, Leiningen has experimental support for Windows and lacks the self-install feature. This post describes how to setup Leiningen on Windows XP. No prior Ant / Maven / Lancet experience is assumed.
1. Establish a directory where you want to install Leiningen (create if it doesn't exist). Example:
Also, add it to your system PATH environment variable.
2. Download the Leiningen script (right-click and choose "Save as"). Save it as "lein.bat" to the location discussed above.
3. Download the Leiningen JAR (for Leiningen 1.1.0) to the same location discussed above. The JAR filename can be figured out by looking at the comments (REM statements) in the lein.bat file.
4. Set environment variable LEIN_JAR to "D:\lein\leiningen-1.1.0-standalone.jar", or the appropriate path where the file is saved.
Leiningen is setup now. To test the install, try these:
D:\temp>lein new hello
