A library which makes your REPL the best IDE ever and promotes totally "editorless" approach.
The ambitious goal is eliminate the code editor at all. REPL should be full autonomous: any declaration should be properly synchronized into the filesystem including proper dependency tree. The runtime is our friend. The code should be self-aware.
In the future you'll start a repl (even without a project), start hacking, compose your
-main function and just have your project in the fs properly saved, ready to be compiled to jar :)
Note, this is proof of concept for now. Everything will change :)
cljsh.repl/defnc(define-code) macro allows you preserve fn definition
cljsh.repl/savefn dumps the code and updates it properly
cljsh.namespaces/add-requires-from-varfn to patch fn's namespace with required imports
cljsh.deps/install!fn to add dependency dynamically and update project dependencies inside the lein's project
(ns cljsh.example) (use 'cljsh.repl) ;; define fns using this macro instead of defn (defnc f1  (println (str "Any crazy code" (or true "even macros" "(you know 'or' is a macro)")))) (defnc f2  (println (str "Now use f1:" (f1)))) ;; at some point just save it to the filesystem (-> f1 var save) (-> f2 var save) ;; no dependency management right now, sorry, note the dependency-first order ;; now hack on any fn (defnc f1  "Refactored") ;; and just save the function again! (-> f1 var save) ;; check filesystem contents: (-> f2 var var->sym-filename slurp println)
the output and the content of
src/cljsh/example.clj should be like this:
(clojure.core/ns cljsh.example) (clojure.core/defn f1  "Refactored") (clojure.core/defn f2  (println (str "Now use f1:" (f1))))
Of course this ns is ready to be used. Check like this:
(require 'cljsh.example :reload) (f2) ;; This will print: ;; Now use f1:Refactored
Reader macros are written already expanded by repl reader (e.g.
#(pr %) ->
(fn* [foo#] (pr foo#)), also
Use function, not reader macros to get pretty dumped fns (expanded are saved also correctly, but look ugly)
Is this any good?
Yes. This library is being developed absolutely without any editor.
I started with
com.cemerick/pomegranate adding dependencies on the fly. Nothing else. Even no shell commands (used
lucid.git to commit & push)!
