Getting started with Incanter using labrepl

Stuart Halloway created a great Clojure tutorial and development environment for the PragmaticStudio Clojure workshop called labrepl, which is available on Github. A nice feature of labrepl is that is comes with several Clojure libraries, including Clojure-contrib, Compojure, and Incanter. It also includes scripts for starting a Clojure REPL and/or Swank server, and instructions for setting up several different IDEs for Clojure development.

In addition to starting a REPL, the included repl script starts a webserver, on port 8080, that includes several Clojure lab exercises and solutions.

It’s a great way to get started with Clojure and Incanter, so check it out. And if you’re an experienced Clojure programmer, Stuart is looking for contributors to create additional labs, so pitch in if you can. I plan to begin by creating some labs covering the material in my Incanter charts and datasets presentation.
