1. Get Gradle: http://repo.gradle.org/gradle/distributions/gradle-1.0-milestone-1-all.zip
  2. Unzip the zip to some directory.
  3. Point the GRADLE_HOME env var to /some/directory/gradle-1.0-milestone-1.
  4. Download clojuresque: http://clojars.org/repo/clojuresque/clojuresque/1.4.0/clojuresque-1.4.0.jar
  5. Put the jar in $GRADLE_HOME/lib/plugins.
  6. Tell gradle you want to use clojuresque in the buildscript:
    apply plugin: "clojure"
  7. Add clojars to your repositories:
    repositories { clojarsRepo() }
  8. Put your clojure sources under src/main/clojure.
  9. Run gradle build.
  10. Find the jar with your project under build/lib/<project>-<version>.jar.

A minimal buildscript is:
