Calva Doccumentation has Moved


Calva Logo

Calva is an integrated REPL powered environment for enjoyable and productive Clojure and ClojureScript in Visual Studio Code. It includes inline code evaluation, Paredit, code formatting, a test runner, syntax highlighting, linting, and more. Calva is open source, and free to use.

Getting Started

First thing you need to do is to get Calva connected to the REPL of your project. Then we suggest you check out Something to Try First.

One thing to note about Calva's code formatter is that it sets the default keybinding of the Format Current Form command to tab. Meaning that most often when things look a bit untidy, you can press tab to make things look pretty. Good to know, right? For performance reasons it only formats the current enclosing form, so sometimes you want to move the cursor up/out a form (ctrl+up) first. See The Paredit Guide for more on moving the cursor structurally through your code.

How to Contribute to Calva?

I'm glad you asked! Please see the Calva Development Wiki. (There, in a section labeled The Tao of Calva, we also try to make clear why you would want to contribute.)
