A powerful Clojure web library, full HTTP, full async



Documentation

yada

yada is a web library for Clojure. It is a sibling library to bidi - whereas bidi is based on routes as data, yada is based on resources as data.

yada takes data declarations and produces a sophisticated Ring handler.

It has the following features

  • Comprehensive HTTP coverage
  • Parameter coercion, automatic Swagger support
  • Async foundation based on manifold
  • Protocol extensibility

The user-manual for the latest beta (1.1.x) release is available at https://juxt.pro/yada and offline (see below).

The user-manual is also available as an e-book or PDF, at Leanpub.

Installation

Add the following dependency to your project.clj file

Clojars Project Build Status

Dependencies

yada requires the following :-

  • a Java JDK/JRE installation, version 8 or above
  • Clojure 1.8.0
  • Aleph 0.4.1 (provided via a dependency)
  • bidi 2.0.9 or above

A project using yada will need to bring in aleph, and optionally bidi.

[aleph "0.4.1"]
[bidi "2.0.9"]

Support for other web-severs, such as undertow, are on the road-map.

Running documentation and examples offline

Although yada is a library, if you clone this repo you can run the documentation and examples from the REPL.

cd yada
lein repl

Once the REPL starts, type in and run the following :-

user> (dev)
dev> (go)

Now browse to http://localhost:8090.

Troubleshooting FAQ

Q. I'm migrating from a version before yada 1.1 and my async multipart and other uploads are not working, sometimes throwing NullPointerExceptions or other errors.

A. Either use yada's built-in yada.server function or make sure you have started aleph's server with the option raw-stream? :true. Previous versions of yada left these settings up to the user but it's very important in yada 1.1 that raw-stream? is set.
