clj-refactor provides refactoring support for Clojure projects.
Here's a small teaser, helping you add a missing libspec:
It's highly recommended to install
M-x package-install clj-refactor
(require 'clj-refactor) (defun my-clojure-mode-hook () (clj-refactor-mode 1) (yas-minor-mode 1) ; for adding require/use/import statements ;; This choice of keybinding leaves cider-macroexpand-1 unbound (cljr-add-keybindings-with-prefix "C-c C-m")) (add-hook 'clojure-mode-hook #'my-clojure-mode-hook)
The more advanced refactorings require our nREPL middleware
version 2.2.0 onwards if
cider-jack-in is used it is injected
profile.boot don't need to be modified anymore for the above usecase!
On the other hand if a standalone REPL or an embedded nREPL server is used you will need to manually add this dependency (see below).
Either in your project's
project.clj or in the
profile found at
:plugins [[refactor-nrepl "2.2.0"] [cider/cider-nrepl "0.11.0"]]
Check out the much longer installation page in the wiki for a less opinionated approach.
clj-refactor has quite a few settings you can tweak to change the
behavior of various commands. You can read more about that
refactor-nrepl used for advanced refactorings
refactor-nrepl uses needs to eval the code too in order to be able
to build the AST we can work with. If that causes side effects like
writing files, opening connections to servers, modifying databases,
etc. performing certain refactoring functions on your code will do
By default the user is warned about this when an AST dependent feature
is invoked. If this warning is an annoyance and the project can be
evalled without any risks set
cljr-warn-on-eval to nil so
cljr-eagerly-build-asts-on-startup can take effect.
We create ASTs for all the namespaces at REPL start up if
cljr-warn-on-eval is set to nil. If that is not desired set
nil in your emacs
configuration. AST dependent features at the moment are
rename file or
change function signature,
All functions in
clj-refactor have a two-letter mnemonic
cljr-rename-symbol. Given the prefix choice
in the example setup you'd call this function by hitting
C-c C-m rs
