CircleCI example in Practicalli Clojure Web Services

Banking on Clojure is an example of Continuous Integration using CircleCI, with LambdaIsland/Kaocha as the test runner and Heroku as the deployment pipeline.

12 Factor approachλ︎

CircleCI serviceλ︎

Use Yaml language to write CI workflows and tasks, using Docker images as a consistent run-time environment

A commercial service with a generous free Cloud plan - (6,000 minutes), providing highly optomises container images to run tasks efficiently. The CircleCI Clojure images contain Clojure CLI, Leiningen and Babashka pre-installed.

CircleCI Orbs package up common configuration and tools, greatly simplifying the configuration and maintenance required.
