Workshop: Developing Clojure with Spacemacs (Emacs + Cider + clj-refactor...)

Tuesday, 17th January at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by The London Clojure Community in January 2017


Workshop: Developing Clojure with Spacemacs (Emacs + Cider + clj-refactor...)

The workshop will go through all the major parts of Spacemacs (mainly CIDER & clj-refactor) that relate to Clojure development and any supporting tips & tricks.

  • Adding the Clojure layer

  • Running the REPL & evaluating code

  • Running tests & test reports

  • Structural editing (smartparens/paredit fun)

  • Emacs cool stuff (multiple cursors, kill-ring / visual undo)

  • Clojure docs, auto-completion, snippets

  • Clojure refactoring with clj-refactor

  • Clojurescript repl configuration (if there is interest)

  • Org-mode for project documentation, literate programming & presentations (optional)

  • debugging basics (I rarely use the debugger so if anyone is willing to show how they use the debugger, please let me know).


Emacs version 25.1 or greater installed and any existing emacs.d configuration moved and backed up (if you want to keep it).

-Leiningen version 2.7.1 or greater should be installed from (or via homebrew on Mac if you prefer)

If you want to maintain your own Emacs + CIDER + clj-refactor + [paredit / smartparens] + autocomplete setup, then 95% of the workshop will still apply.
