Starting the Clojure REPL in a customizable fashion. The goal is to make it easer to write "prepped" REPLs.
Before the Clojure CLI tools where released, I found myself often in the need outside of project to be able to fire up a REPL (e.g. to answer an Stack-Overflow question). That was very east before the days of clojure.spec, which then needed multiple JARs to be present.
I ended up doing some pre-packaged JARs for different use-cases (e.g. a "comfort" REPL with things like specter in it, one for incanter, one for interactive exploration of web API (rest-repl)). But in the end it became cat herding.
So this project aims to fix my problems:
provide a modular setup for (differently named) REPLs to run outside of projects
put features for the REPL in dedicated plugins
Is it still relevant? All this work started long before (even in public) the Clojure CLI tools where released. I think many of the features here are superseded now, yet I never came around to make the REST-REPL scenario work and I think clj is focused more around the project setup and not so much to get a "prepped" REPL (e.g. override multiple different things around the REPL).
