Money 1.3.0 Is Released

Money is a Clojure library that deals with monetary amounts and currencies, built on top of Joda Money.

1.3.0 is a minor release that has no breaking API changes and several minor features.

Changes between Money 1.2.0 and 1.3.0

Hiccup Integration, when compiled, will extend Hiccup’s HTML rendering protocol for monetary amounts and currency units. Internally it uses default formatter used by*default-formatter*, which can be rebound.

Formatting of Monetary Amounts is a new function that formats monetary amounts using default or provided locale:

(require '[ :as cu)
(require '[ :refer [amount-of])
(require '[ :refer :all])

(import java.util.Locale)

;; format using default system locale
(format (amount-of cu/GBP 20.0) Locale/UK) ;= GBP20,00
;; format using UK locale
(format (amount-of cu/GBP 20.0) Locale/UK) ;= £10.00

Custom Joda Money formatters are also supported.

Addition and Subtraction of Monetary Amounts and now accept monetary amounts as well as doubles as 2nd argument.
