Antq requires Clojure 1.9.0 or later.
If you’d like to use with 1.8.0 or earlier, please see here.

File Tool/Service Note


Clojure CLI





Provides 2 ways of program and plug-in.






GitHub Actions





Experimental. gradle command must be installed.


Clojure CLI (deps.edn)

Run the following command for trial.

clojure -Sdeps '{:deps {com.github.liquidz/antq {:mvn/version "RELEASE"}}}' -M -m antq.core

Or add the following alias to your $HOME/.clojure/deps.edn.

 {:outdated {:extra-deps {com.github.liquidz/antq {:mvn/version "RELEASE"}}
             :main-opts ["-m" "antq.core"]}}

Then, run clojure -M:outdated. (run clojure -A:outdated for Clojure CLI Tool or earlier).

Clojure CLI Tools ( or later)

From Clojure CLI ver, tool installation is supported.

# install
clojure -Ttools install com.github.liquidz/antq '{:git/tag "1.3.0"}' :as antq
# uninstall
clojure -Ttools remove :tool antq
# execute
clojure -Tantq outdated
# help
clojure -A:deps -Tantq help/doc

Leiningen (as a main program)

Add the following dependency and alias to your $HOME/.lein/profiles.clj.

 {:dependencies [[com.github.liquidz/antq "RELEASE"]]
  :aliases {"outdated" ["run" "-m" "antq.core"]}

Then, run lein outdated.

Leiningen (as a plugin)

The Leiningen plugin is a newer offering. It tends to be more accurate (since it won’t parse your project.clj, having it evaluated by Leiningen instead). However the :upgrade option will not be supported (since the plugin cannot always know if a given dependency came from a specific profile, middleware, etc).

In order to use it, add the following plugin to your project.clj (or $HOME/.lein/profiles.clj):

 :plugins [[com.github.liquidz/antq "RELEASE"]]
 ;; optional - you can add antq options here:
 :antq {}

Then, run lein antq.

GitHub Actions

Antq can work with GitHub Actions. See antq’s workflow for concrete example.

In another way, you can use the following action.


Antq experimentally supports Gradle. See here for details.



Upgrade outdated versions interactively. You can use --force option for upgrading without confirmation.


For now, --upgrade option only supports following files.

  • deps.edn

  • shadow-cljs.edn

  • project.clj

  • build.boot

  • pom.xml


Skip version checking for specified artifacts or versions.


# Exclude all versions of specified artifact
# Exclude specific version of specified artifact

When you specified a version number, antq will report the latest version excluding only the specified version.

You must specify groupId/artifactId for Java dependencies.


Add search path for projects. Current directory(.) is added by default.

E.g. -d foo --directory=bar:baz will search "foo", "baz" and "bar" directories.


Focus version checking for specified artifacts.

E.g. --focus=com.github.liquidz/antq

You must specify groupId/artifactId for Java dependencies.
focus option is prefer than exclude option.


Skip to search specified project files. Must be one of boot, clojure-cli, github-action, pom, shadow-cljs and leiningen.

E.g. --skip=pom


Customize outputs for outdated dependencies.

E.g. --error-format="::error file={{file}}::{{message}}"

You can use following variables:

Variable Name Description


A filename containing outdated dependencies.


The artifact name.


The current version.


The latest version.


The latest artifact name. See details: Clojars Verified Group Names policy.


The diff URL for Version Control System. (Nullable)


Default error message.


Reporter Name Description

table (default)

Report results in a table.


Report results with a custom format. When you use --error-format option, this reporter will be used automatically.


Report results as a JSON format.


Report results as a EDN format.
