I'd recommend adding the Reading Clojure Characters page:

IN/Clojure's "Clojure by Example" https://github.com/inclojure-org/clojure-by-example

DisClojure: Shameless plug, because I wrote most of it 😁 and when I named it, I didn't know of Hirokuni Kim's project. This one takes a different very different example track, from Kim's.

(edit)

To clarify why I added it here... We use it to teach the Introduction to Clojure workshop at IN/Clojure https://inclojure.org/#workshops , and I know of at least one company that uses it formally for their internal Clojure on-boarding. So, it seems to be working as advertised :-)

@yogthos please consider adding a link to the searchable Slack-archive (https://clojurians.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/180378-slack-archive); wealth of information for beginners!

I wrote this guide last year for beginners:
Starting with Clojure

This guide is aimed to the developer who’s interested in Clojure and want to install it and start using it right away.

It will cover the installation of Clojure, some of the build tools and how they work, the configuration of an editor, of the REPL and a small hello world demonstrating how things like build, and test works.

If you’re new to Clojure, at the end of this guide you should be able to start your project.

It's probably best if the Clojurians Discord Server is removed from this list again. The server has been unmoderated for years and while this has mostly worked out in the time I've been there, yesterday there has been a bigger incident of someone spamming slurs and NSFW stuff. The only user with permissions to ban people or otherwise manage the server seems to have abandoned Discord. So, the server isn't really a safe environment anymore, especially because it's public.

We've been building the Discljord server (https://discord.gg/discljord) for what's soon to be a year as an alternative. It has active moderators and is verified and officially listed in Discord's server discovery for Clojure. r/clojure links to it as well and a lot of people have switched already.

r/clojure links to it as well

@JohnnyJayJay I just went and checked the right sidebar of r/Clojure and it still seems to link to the old, Clojurians Discord, not the new Discljord one -- am I looking in the wrong place?

It seems you're right - I remember it did a while back though. I thought I double-checked, but apparently they changed it back for some reason. We'll have to contact the moderators again.

https://clojurecademy.com/ is no longer there unfortunately.

https://practicalli.github.io/ has freely available books on Clojure, which are regularly updated.
The Clojure book shows how to use Clojure CLI tools and includes an extensive user configuration to add over 30 community tools.

This might be worth adding as a 4clojure replacement since the original is shutting down

Sublime Text 4 with https://github.com/tonsky/Clojure-Sublimed works like a charm for me, perhaps it's worth adding?
