How to run a single Clojure test from the terminal using Leiningen

Use case

You may want to target and run a specific test or set of tests when testing your code so that you don't keep executing the entire suite each time you make changes to specific tests. This creates a faster feedback loop for you to build and fix code. Usually tests are executed with Leiningen using lein test. You can extend this command to meet the necessary objectives.


lein test :only my.namespace/my-test
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
