Installing an unhosted jar dependency (though source on github)

In this example I'm setting up doc-test with lein for a new project.

Create a new project.

% lein new my-proj
% cd my-proj

Add a convenience lein plugin to enable running doc-tests from CLI.

% lein plugin install lein-clj-doc-test "0.0.1

Add a doc-test and try running it now.

% lein doc-test

Now we want to be able to run doc-tests as from code as part of regular test suite. doc-test is not in clojars, so we need to install it locally.

% cd ~/tmp
% git clone
% cd clj-doc-test

Build it as a jar.

% lein jar

Add the localrepo lein plugin to enable local maven m2 installation.

% lein plugin install lein-localrepo "0.3"

Figure out what the incantation is for installing this jar.

% lein localrepo coords  doc-test-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
doc-test-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar doc-test/doc-test 0.0.1-SNAPSHOT

Install it!

% lein localrepo install doc-test-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar doc-test/doc-test 0.0.1-SNAPSHOT

Back in your project you now need to set up the dependency.

% cd .../my-proj
% $EDITOR project.clj
:dev-dependencies ... [doc-test "0.0.1-SNAPSHOT"]

Install it to your project.

% lein deps

Add the explicit test to your code.

% $EDITOR test/my_proj/test/core.clj
(doc-test slugify)
