nREPL is a Clojure network REPL that provides a REPL server and client, along with some common APIs of use to IDEs and other tools that may need to evaluate Clojure code in remote environments.
tools.nrepl project?How is this different from the "contrib"
Check the brief history of nREPL, available here.
Extremely stable. nREPL's protocol and API are rock-solid and battle tested. nREPL's team pledges to evolve them only in backwards-compatible ways.
That being said, there were a few organizational changes related to the transition out of clojure-contrib that everyone has to keep in mind:
[nrepl "0.3.1"]is a drop-in replacement for
[org.clojure/tools.nrepl "0.2.13"](notice the different artifact coordinates).
[nrepl "0.4.0"]changes the namespaces from
1.0.0 release will include fixes for all previously-reported
but languishing nREPL issues. Future releases will focus on supporting
the needs of the essential tools of the Clojure(Script) ecosystem
(e.g. Leiningen, Boot, CIDER, Cursive).
See the manual.
