This is mostly a public service announcement, I didn’t find a good list of requirements anywhere else. Yes, I know I must be insane to be trying to half-ass learn another language but what else would I do on Sunday mornings? There’s no football and the alternative is hard manual labor in the garden. Shudder.
- 1. Get a Java SDK installed. I used Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 10
- 2. Download and unzip Clojure. If you’re not installing from source, you don’t need Maven or Ant.
That’s really it, I expected it to be more work but using the binaries over the source simplified the process even though I went ahead and installed Maven too. The Getting Started page has some links to VIM and Emacs syntax files that will probably help your editing a lot. I may try to do some of the initial work in VIM as well as Komodo and see which I prefer.
