Ep 102: REPLify!

Play Episode

Each week, we discuss a different topic about Clojure and functional programming.

If you have a question or topic you'd like us to discuss, tweet @clojuredesign, send an email to feedback@clojuredesign.club, or join the #clojuredesign-podcast channel on the Clojurians Slack.

This week, the topic is: "using the REPL to explore". We find ourselves in a murky situation, so we go to our REPL-connected editor to shine some light on the details.

Clojure command line

If you are unfamilar with the Clojure command line, check out the Deps and CLI Guide. You can set up global aliases in $HOME/.clojure/deps.edn. For example, this is one Christoph uses:

 {:nrepl {:extra-deps {nrepl/nrepl {:mvn/version "RELEASE"}
                       cider/piggieback {:mvn/version "RELEASE"}}
          :jvm-opts ["-server" "-XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=256m" "-Xmx1280m"]
          :main-opts ["-m" "nrepl.cmdline"]}}}

Run it with:

clojure -M:nrepl

You can see more examples in Nate's dotfiles and in Sean Corfield's dot-clojure project.
