This library implements a workaround for CLJ-2253. Simply require (or use) this namespace before using slurp and you're done.


CLJ-2253 is available as a Maven artifact from Clojars. The latest released version is:

Clojars Project

Trying it Out

If you prefer to kick the library's tyres before creating a project, you can use the lein try plugin:

$ lein try clj-commons/clj-2253

or, if you have installed the Clojure CLI tools:

$ clj -Sdeps '{:deps {clj-commons/clj-2253 {:mvn/version "#.#.#"}}}'  # Where #.#.# is replaced with an actual version number

Either way, you will be dropped in a REPL with the library downloaded and ready for use.


The functionality is provided by a single namespace, CLJ-2253, that will work its hacky magic as soon as it's loaded.

Require it in the REPL (incl. a lein try REPL):

(require '[CLJ-2253])

Require it in your project:

(ns my-app.core
  (:require [CLJ-2253]))

Tested Versions

CLJ-2253 is tested on:

JVM v1.6JVM v1.7 (OpenJDK)JVM v1.8 (Oracle)JVM v9 (Oracle)JVM v10 (OpenJDK)JVM v11 (OpenJDK)
Clojure 1.4.01,211111

1 I chose to only go back as far as Clojure v1.5.1. If anyone needs this tested on older versions of Clojure, PRs are welcome!

2 Leiningen v2.8 only supports JVM v1.7 and up

3 Clojure v1.10 only supports JVM v1.8 and up
