right now, that's how the uberjar in the installer is named

not sure why you need the uberjar at all though

I think it may have been called other things in the past


I could avoid the need for the uberjar using clj -A:deps -Spath along with -Sdescribe but that’s tricky for UI reasons in Cursive since describe returns immediately but that command takes some amount of time up to a lot. That needs running in the background with a progress meter, and also requires parsing output in order to provide some useful feedback to the user on what’s going on. Looking for the uberjar is just easier at the moment.


IS add-lib deliberately not added in tool-deps?


I am in search of the feature of dynamically adding a lib in the repl.


It is intentionally on a branch that is not the main/master branch, because the time/design/effort has not yet been expended to include it in the main/master branch.


I have used it briefly before, and Sean Corfield uses it frequently, so you are free to use it if you wish.

We are still deciding on various questions about how to include it
