CircleCI Configurationλ︎

This configuration uses the CircleCI specific docker image with Java 17 and the latest version of Leiningen.

The configuration defines that the code will be check out, Leiningen will download the dependencies and then run unit tests.

version: 2
      - image: cimg/clojure:1.10

    working_directory: ~/repo

      LEIN_ROOT: "true"
      # Customize the JVM maximum heap limit
      JVM_OPTS: -Xmx3200m

      - checkout

      # Download and cache dependencies
      - restore_cache:
          - v1-dependencies-{{ checksum "project.clj" }}
          # fallback to using the latest cache if no exact match is found
          - v1-dependencies-

      - run: lein deps

      - save_cache:
            - ~/.m2
          key: v1-dependencies-{{ checksum "project.clj" }}

      # run tests!
      - run: lein test

Caching dependenciesλ︎

CircleCI create a cache of downloaded dependencies, to help speed up the running of the project.

The config.yml defines the path where the dependencies are saved. A unique key is used to identify the dependencies cache.
