Has anyone compared AI dev tools by their usefulness for Clojure yet? I’m wondering if there’s anything better than Copilot (which keeps messing up my parens). Possible list

Not sure this is the best channel for this question…

All tools so far seem pretty bad at Clojure. Even models from REPL-IT (which I think uses Clojure) struggles. I like to think there is less boilerplate code in Clojure so their may be less need compared to other languages. When you do find an AI tool - it's likely to be either (A) something that plugs into your IDE (e.g. copilot) or (B) a chat interface that you copy/paste into/from. There is an attempt to build an Open Source LLM that can produce Clojure code #C054XC5JVDZ but we're still at a very early stage with it.

I find CoPilot to often have good suggestions, but the bracket havoc it creates makes me run without the inline suggestions. I use the chat interface (beta, there is some signup somewhere) instead. But the UI is a bit lacking compared to ChatGPT so I often use that instead.
