You can Try Clojure without installing it on your machine; this site gives you a Clojure prompt ('REPL') in your browser, and a brief tutorial. Next steps:
- To practice, 4Clojure: Fill-in-the-blank exercises from beginning to advanced. Click on one of the 'title' links to do a problem
- If you want an easily installable editor and REPL, try Clooj
- Install Leiningen and read the tutorial.
You'll need Lein to build programs and run them at the command line, and also to use Clojure libraries.
- If you need a more powerful development environment (with a learning curve to match), try Emacs, the choice of many experienced Clojurians.
If you want a standard IDE, there are plugins for Eclipse, Netbeans, and IntelliJ, among others.
