👋 sorry if this is a FAQ, but I didn’t see it on the website: does Calva support socket REPLs? (I personally use Chlorine with Atom but I’m looking to help a teammate who uses VS Code get started working with a REPL.)

Just in case anyone is looking for something similar: I asked in #chlorine and it turns out there is a version of Chlorine for VS Code, but it’s called “Clover”: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=mauricioszabo.clover

👋 Calva is nREPL only.

Got it — thanks!

why is that though? a socket REPL is easier to support than nREPL probably

Calva is a bit of a wrapper around cider-nrepl. To build the functionalities on top of socket repl is a significant amount of work. So, that is why, I guess. 😃
