I primarily use Clojure on Windows with VS Code and Calva. Over time I’ve installed Clojure multiple ways on Windows, and I wanted to distill that knowledge to help others get started easily. I wrote this partly for a friend who recently asked me how to do this, but also I’ve been wanting to write it for others for some time. There are other guides like this, but I found none that took the same approach I wanted to take. I also tried to make it short and remove any other noise to avoid information overload for people coming from other environments who don’t know what Leiningen is, aren’t familiar with the JDK, etc.
This is the guide I wished I had when I started. Feedback is welcome. I imagine many people here aren’t at this early of a level of learning, so I plan to post it elsewhere too (other programming communities).
