Any way into tricking CIDER M-x cider-clojuredocs into thinking my clojurescript project is a clojure one?


cider-clojuredocs doesn't work on clojurescript, but 99% of the time I'm looking into the doc of functions common to clj and cljs anyway

@ak407 unfortunately for whatever reason that only works for a given *cider-error* buffer jump to source...

I tried manually setting my CLASSPATH but there's almost no documentation anywhere about exactly how to set it right, I just pointed it to where I also set cider-jdk-src-paths

Looking at *cider-classpath* I see /opt/icedtea-bin-3.14.0/jre/lib/somelib.jar but idk, should I be seeing some core jdk stuff or something?

I'm a complete java noob lol


@ryanwatkins54 Someone shared this before but I haven't been able to make it fully work; as you said, it works (for me) only in the error buffer (stacktraces)


This one was, in particular, for java 9+ (module system). I tried it like this:

;; customize jdk sources path
  ;; see also 
  (setq cider-jdk-src-paths '("~/workspace/clojure/clojure/clojure-1.10.1-sources"
                              ;; adding most common modules, otherwise it doesn't work with modularized JDK

@jumar I tried looking at the source code but nothing came to me as of yet, I mean it's not totally terrible but yeah

I saw in the talk where @bozhidar demonstrated it, he was using a macbook, maybe it's how it's distributed (the source), idk


I'm using latest Mac OS X


The issue can be java 9+; maybe he was using Java 8


Well, Java 9 certainly created a lot of problems for us


And you’re right - I was showing this working on Java 8. It’s still broken on 9+.


Java interop is a big weakness of Emacs/Cider - or rather probably not a focus; Cursive is so much better in this space


Yeah, unfortunately that’s a weakness currently. Mostly due to our (mine) limited bandwidth.


The massive changes in Java 9 didn’t help us either - the module system made a lot of things way more complicated…


Yeah, I can imagine that. Thanks for all the hard work anyway - I'm still a massive fun of emacs/cider. For me, more a important issue is actually a poor performance when writing a lot of stuff (especially larger data structures) in logs; e.g. logging a ring requestif If could find a solution how to significantly improve performance in that scenario. I've tried experimenting with font locking but that didn't help much; not sure if there's some other way but Emacs often blocks for quite a while when I try to print debug data. 😞

Cursive, hmm..

Ryan Watkins05:03:12

I guess java interop isn't something you'd do all too often in Clojure d2d?


Yeah, hopefully not 🙂

Ryan Watkins05:03:30

and I guess I can see javadocs anywho

I am steering clear of Java but who knows, maybe I will have to one day work a job in this haha


The evaluation indicators in the fringe are an unobtrusive way to show if a function definition has changed or has not been evaluated.


There was a PR to make these more obvious, but I think it wasn't completed.
