@drewverlee not sure if you worked out package vs layer. I think of it as Spacemacs having specific layers that are made up of one or more Emacs packages. If a package is not in a Spacemacs layer, then you can include the package via dotspacemacs-additional-packages section of .spacemacs. Parinfer is not part of the Clojure layer. The package.el file of the layer shows you which packages are included. Using parinfer may cause conflicts with smartparens. A package can be disabled globally in the dotspacemacs-exclude-packages section of .spacemacs. Or create a variable called clojure-exclude-packages to disable smartparens just for the Clojure layer (example in Spacemacs documentation)
