Leiningen is the easiest way to use Clojure. With a focus on project automation and declarative configuration, it gets out of your way and lets you focus on your code.

It's easy to install by hand:
The tutorial is the best place to start. If you have Leiningen installed, you can read the tutorial by running lein help tutorial. It does not cover learning the language itself; good Clojure documentation can be found elsewhere.
Running lein help faq will get you the FAQ. Documentation for each individual task is available via lein help $TASK. You can also see the sample project.clj file with a reference of all project settings by running lein help sample.
Leiningen is the most active open-source Clojure project. We welcome potential contributors and do our best to try to make it easy to help out.
Discussion occurs primarily in the #leiningen channel on Freenode, but there is also a mailing list. To join the mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The same address is used for posting once you've joined. Issues should be reported on the GitHub issue tracker. Simpler issues appropriate for first-time contributors looking to help out are tagged "newbie".
Periodically the community is surveyed. The latest edition recently had its results published.
Contributors who have had a single patch accepted may request commit rights on the mailing list or in IRC as well as a free sticker.
