What’s the difference between contrib’s nREPL and this one?

See our history. Very simply put - this project is the continuation of the contrib project.

Does nREPL support ClojureScript?

Yes, it does, although you’ll need additional middleware to enable the ClojureScript support (e.g. piggieback or shadow-cljs).

Does nREPL support ClojureCLR?

nREPL currently doesn’t support ClojureCLR. The reason for this is that it leverages Java APIs internally. There’s an nREPL port for ClojureCLR, but it’s not actively maintained and it doesn’t behave like the Clojure nREPL.

When is nREPL 1.0 going to be released?

There’s no exact roadmap for the 1.0 release. Roughly speaking the idea is to release 1.0 once everything essential has been migrated from the legacy contrib nREPL to the new nREPL (e.g. lein, boot, key middleware) and we’ve cleaned up the most important tickets from our backlog.

Are there any interesting nREPL extensions worth checking out?

Sure! See third party middleware for details.

Where can I get help regarding nREPL?
