Clojure Downloads

Clojure Downloads

New to Clojure? Head to the Getting Started guide instead for information on how to install the Clojure tools!

These tools allow you to start a REPL for interactive use, download Clojure libraries (including Clojure itself), and run Clojure programs.

Stable Release: 1.11.2 (Mar 8, 2024)

Include the release in your project using the following coordinates:

deps.edn coordinate:

org.clojure/clojure {:mvn/version "1.11.2"}

Leiningen dependency:

[org.clojure/clojure "1.11.2"]

Download: jar


Clojure 1.11.2 depends on the following core libraries:

  • org.clojure/spec.alpha {:mvn/version "0.3.218"} (jar)

  • org.clojure/core.specs.alpha {:mvn/version "0.2.62"} (jar)

Including Clojure with a tool like clj or Leiningen will automatically include these libraries as transitive dependencies.

Java compatibility

Clojure depends on Java and all Clojure code is compiled to Java 8 compatible bytecode (newer versions of Java can load this as well).

  • Minimum runtime dependency: Java 8

  • Supported: LTS (long term support) releases, currently Java 8, Java 11, Java 17, Java 21

  • Others: likely work, but not officially supported

Get Clojure

Via deps.edn

Specify the version of Clojure that you want in your deps.edn:

 {org.clojure/clojure {:mvn/version "1.11.2"}}}

Via Leiningen

Modify the dependencies and repositories sections of your Leiningen project.clj file, specifying the version of Clojure that you want:

; under dependencies, select the release of clojure that you want
:dependencies [[org.clojure/clojure "1.11.2"]]

Using Clojure SNAPSHOT releases

Most tools do not automatically include the sonatype snapshot repositories. To use SNAPSHOT releases, you must add this to your configuration:

In deps.edn

Add an additional repository in deps.edn:

 {"sonatype-oss-public" {:url ""}}}

In Leiningen

Add a snapshot repository in Leiningen in project.clj:

:repositories {"sonatype-oss-public" ""}

In Maven

In pom.xml:
