Switching to the REPLλ︎

Update for Clojure CLI tools
, s a toggles between a Clojure code file buffer and the REPL buffer, opening the REPL buffer where required.
, s n evaluates the namespace of the current Clojure file in the REPL, changing the REPL to be in that namespace.
Hint::To REPL buffer or not to REPL bufferλ︎
Many developers simply evaluate functions and expressions within the Clojure code buffer itself.
A REPL buffer is very useful for showing larger results from evaluating code and any side effect information such as logging and debugging.
Select the REPL namespaceλ︎
SPC SPC cider-repl-set-ns displays a pop-up buffer of all the available namespaces.
A running REPL is required.
When starting a REPL the default namespace is called
user. This namespace contains the
clojure.repllibrary allowing you to call functions useful for development, such as
(source ,,,), etc.
To use the
sourcetools, you can stay in the
usernamespace and use
requirefunction to include your own code in the
usernamespace. For example:
Setting the default REPL namespaceλ︎
Set the namespace used when starting the REPL in the
project.clj file by adding
:init-ns to the

The REPL buffer contains a detailed welcome message describing how to use the basics of the REPL.
