AFAICT, there’s Send form before caret to repl and Send top form to repl, but there isn’t Send form around caret to repl


Is there a matrix of which versions of IntelliJ are stable with which versions of Cursive? I just got the IntelliJ upgrade to 2019.2.3 and I don't know if I dare!

i've been running eap4 for 2 days with a project that blends deps and leiningen so far so good

Ben Hammond16:10:44

I'd held back onto 2019.1.4 until last week when I suffered from the eap2 snafu and figured I might as well upgrade all the way

Ben Hammond16:10:12

I've not had any problems with it so far


i'm on 2019.2.3 ... the stuff i use seems to work ... but then again i'm not pushing it too much


something that is funky (but not due to version) .. if withing a hasty typing i have created a manual mismatch of parenthesis ... i struggle to close one manually (literally, when i type ')' then nothing happens)


what's the golden idea behind that ?


i seem to be missing it (and have to fix the issue with copy-paste of the character)


e.g. ... i type (def foo (list "bar")) ... and then wipe out the last character with shift + arrow backwards followed by ctrl+x ... it seems it's impossible to type ')' at this moment to unbreak the code

make a comment with ;, then type it, then remove the comment

but really, training yourself to rely on paredit/parinfer and primarily use structural changes rather than textual changes is the best option long term

usually the situation is already the result of some accident 🙂

yeah, it happens. the comment hack above is pretty useful

you can also select a hanging left paren and delete


I usually copy a close-paren from someplace else and paste it in. You can’t type it, but you can paste it.


@hlship (and others) - this is the state of play of IntelliJ versions:

Thanks! I might try a backup when I'm next home and can do a full backup first!


A good trick sometimes is to just use Ctrl-Backspace:
