Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)
I started the week by writing a post about the new Clojure library tools.build and how to add support for building artifacts using this new tool in our collective Clojure utility belt. The discussion is framed around moving from a small Leiningen project.clj file to a build.clj that uses tools.build and the Clojure CLI to do its thing.
