lein-whimrepl

A Leiningen plugin that makes it easy to send Clojure forms from the Win32 version of Vim to a Clojure REPL. whimrepl uses VimServer to listen for strings of text sent using Vim's remote protocol. A modified version of vim-slime is then used to send text from Vim to the VimServer-wrapped Leiningen REPL.

Installation

Add the whimrepl plugin to your global Leiningen config (%USERPROFILE%\.lein\profiles.clj) like so:

{:user {:plugins [[lein-whimrepl "1.0.0"]]}}

Add vim-slime to your Vim config, most likely by way of Pathogen, and then configure vim-slime to use whimrepl in your vimrc file:

" Point vim-slime at whimrepl.
let g:slime_target = "whimrepl"

Launching whimrepl

whimrepl wraps the underlying lein repl command and passes through all of the standard REPL options. The easiest way to start whimrepl is just to type lein whimrepl:

C:\Users\malyn\mycljproj> lein whimrepl
whimrepl 1.0.0 available at mycljproj
nREPL server started on port 54127
REPL-y 0.1.6
Clojure 1.4.0
    Exit: Control+D or (exit) or (quit)
Commands: (user/help)
    Docs: (doc function-name-here)
        (find-doc "part-of-name-here")
Source: (source function-name-here)
        (user/sourcery function-name-here)
Javadoc: (javadoc java-object-or-class-here)
Examples from clojuredocs.org: [clojuredocs or cdoc]
        (user/clojuredocs name-here)
        (user/clojuredocs "ns-here" "name-here")
user=>

By default whimrepl will register itself as a Vim target with the name of your Leiningen project. If you are not in a project directory then whimrepl will default to "whimrepl". You can override the default by supplying a target at the end of the command line invocation:

C:\Users\malyn\mycljproj> lein whimrepl replthis
whimrepl 1.0.0 available at replthis
nREPL server started on port 54172
REPL-y 0.1.6
Clojure 1.4.0
    Exit: Control+D or (exit) or (quit)
Commands: (user/help)
    Docs: (doc function-name-here)
        (find-doc "part-of-name-here")
Source: (source function-name-here)
        (user/sourcery function-name-here)
Javadoc: (javadoc java-object-or-class-here)
Examples from clojuredocs.org: [clojuredocs or cdoc]
        (user/clojuredocs name-here)
        (user/clojuredocs "ns-here" "name-here")
user=>

Note that whimrepl is smart enough to ignore Leiningen's :headless option and will not start a whimrepl listener when that option is present. On a related note, because whimrepl just wraps Leiningen's normal REPL, you can use whimrepl when connected to a remote REPL using :connect.

Using whimrepl

whimrepl integrates with vim-slime, so you can send a Clojure form from Vim to your REPL with a simple Control-c, Control-c.
