Hi, I finally switched to cursive completely because of emacs pinky 🙂. One piece of functionality I can't seem to find is the inspection of vars that i use a lot in cider. Is there a way in cursive to browse the data in vars in the repl, so without having to set a breakpoint somewhere.


There isn’t but it’s something I’m planning to add very soon, similar to the new REPL diff functionality.

great, thanks!


You mean, besides evaluating the var in the repl?


I mean browsing the referenced data. I'm always working with very large data structures, so just printing it is not useful. cider gives you a "browser" to iteratively explore the data structure, navigating into the nested parts


i think vlaaad.reveal is supposed to offer the same, but i just spent a few hours to try and make it work with my old leiningen project, without much success


I was hoping to get the intellij debugger to explore data for the vars in the repl, really...

You might want to look at Portal as well. It's pretty trivial to get hooked into a project and the beta of the IJ plugin works okay.

Cool, thanks, portal looks exactly like what I'm looking for!


+1 on this. Portal inside of Cursive/IntelliJ is freaking amazing.
