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.

The below list of contents is sorted in what we think is a good Getting Started order.

One thing to note about Calva’s code formatter is that it sets the default keybinding of the Format Current Form command to tab. Good to know, right?
