How to build your own project upon Edge
Edge is designed to be built upon. You are free to make whatever changes you like (additions and deletions), in accordance with the License (MIT).
If you don’t have a remote repository already (e.g. on GitHub), here’s how to create a new local one:
src$ mkdir acme src$ cd acme acme$ git init
If you already have a repository, you can clone it like so:
src$ git clone email@example.com:acme/acme.git src$ cd acme
Once you have your repository, you can add Edge as a remote, and incorporate it in:
acme$ git remote add edge https://github.com/juxt/edge.git acme$ git pull --allow-unrelated-histories --no-rebase edge master
It’s a good idea to have somewhere to back up your commits.
For example, if you create a new repository on GitHub called
acme under the organisation
acme, you could add the repository to your project like this:
acme$ git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:acme/acme.git acme$ git push -u origin master
With your new project created, you’re ready to create an app. Apps are deps.edn projects within Edge which are intended to be run as a server.
From the root of the repo, run the
./bin/app appended with your project name.
It can be run with an optional flags which add support for Sass or Clojurescript, these are
Your project name should be namespaced to match your application. If your company was named "Acme" you might use "acme/api" or "com.acme/api".
If you’re unsure, use your company name at work, or your github username for hobby projects. There’s a low chance of conflicts in an application.
The project namespace will determine the Clojure namespaces within your application.
The below commands will create a folder based on your project name.
If you don’t like the folder name, you can safely rename it (e.g. via
mv) without any adverse affects.
edge$ ./bin/app acme/api edge$ ./bin/app acme/blog --sass edge$ ./bin/app acme/dashboard --cljs edge$ ./bin/app acme/radar --sass --cljs
