Quartzite 2.0 Is Released

Quartzite is a Clojure DSL on top of the Quartz scheduler.

2.0.0 is a major release that contains breaking public API changes.

Changes Between Quartzite 1.3.0 and 2.0.0

Scheduler as Explicit Arguments

Following our commitment to make our projects rely less on dynamic vars we have changed clojurewerkz.quartzite.scheduler function to take an explicit scheduler argument.

So, in 1.3 releases, you would do:

(require '[clojurewerkz.quartzite.scheduler :as qs])

(qs/schedule job-detail trigger)

and in 2.0 release, the same code would look like so:

(require '[clojurewerkz.quartzite.scheduler :as qs])

(let [s (-> (qs/initialize) qs/start)]
  (qs/schedule s job-detail trigger)
  (qs/shutdown s)) is Gone was removed as all of the functions in that namespace have been contributed to clj-time a while ago, and some provide more correct or extensible functionality.

Simply use clj-time counterparts when upgrading.

Clojure 1.4 and 1.5 are No Longer Supported

The library no longer supports Clojure 1.4 and 1.5 as of this version.
