  • Why Clojure?

    I've only dabbled with GHCI. I've used it as a standalone REPL for trying out small things, the same way I'd use a Python or Javascript REPL. I haven't used the REPL /the/ developer interface to the program. In Clojure, I would (1) start a REPL server, (2) connect to it from my editor, and (3) send expressions to it. I didn't develop Haskell that way, though I think it was possible with Intero[1].

    Within the Clojure community, there's a perception that the Clojure REPL is one of its strongest selling points[2].

    Are you using the REPL actively when developing?
