I'm trying to use register values within an isearch: C-s C-x r i a C-x r i a would normally insert the value of the register a into the buffer. However this does not work in the minibuffer. C-x closes the minibuffer window that C-s created and the value will be inserted into my previously open buffer. Is there a special command that I need to prefix the insertion with or is there another way to insert a register into a minibuffer?


@munen maybe not the exact solution you want, but did you try to use swiper instead of isearch?


it has much more consistent bindings, and inserting from register works as expected


and here's my config, if you're interested: (requires use-package/quelpa though)


@a13 Thanks for the tip! Swiper looks nice, but is a pretty big change^^ I'll definitively try give it a try, soon.


@munen welcome! As for me, I switched (after 8 years of using isearch) to swiper in a couple of hours, the only thing i missed for a little bit was isearch-backward


I have to admit that I'm normally using evil-search-forward or /, because of 15 years of muscle memory(; I'm only using C-s when recording macros, because evil-search-forward will not throw an error when reaching the bottom of the buffer, but wrap back to the top. That makes it harder to write macros that can be repeated for the current buffer. I'm not really searching for a 'more powerful' search. But maybe I'm missing out and I'm very happy to give swiper a spin after such a good recommendation. Thanks, again^^


I keep getting the following error when trying to cider-jack-in

error in process sentinel: Could not start nREPL server: Possibly confusing dependencies found:

[org.clojure/tools.nrepl "0.2.12" :exclusions [org.clojure/clojure]]


[cider/cider-nrepl "0.15.0-SNAPSHOT"] -> [org.clojure/tools.nrepl "0.2.13" :exclusions [org.clojure/clojure]]


[org.clojure/tools.nrepl "0.2.12" :exclusions [org.clojure/clojure]]

Consider using these exclusions:

[cider/cider-nrepl "0.15.0-20170629.061927-20" :exclusions [org.clojure/tools.nrepl]]

but adding the :exlusions in profiles.clj doesn't seem to fix it. Anyone know what I might need to do for this?


Would anyone in here happen to be familiar with Spacemacs? I want to write a layer as a hook for clojure-mode that will add keybind functionality for smartparens and some custom functions, but I'm unsure of how to do that


alice: try asking in #spacemacs channel


Oops, didn't realize they were segregated here
