Literate programming is a document in a natural language, interspersed with snippets of code that can be executed. It is an interactive document that can update sections of itself from the code that runs inside.
Configure Literate Programming with Clojure
clojure layers in the
dotspacemacs-layer-configuration of the
~/.spacemacs configuration file.
Create a Clojure project
Literate programming can be used with any working Clojure project, using either a
deps.edn configuration or a Leinigen `project.clj** file.
Create a project using either Clojure CLI tools or Leiningen. Dependencies, apart from Clojure, itself are not required.
Clojure CLI tools (with clj-new)
clojure -A:new app practicalli/literate
lein new app literate
Simple example project
Clone practicalli/literate-programming-in-clojure project for a simple example project that works.
Run a Clojure REPL
project.clj, or any source code file from the project.
, ' or
M-RET ' to start a REPL.
Create an org file with Clojure code blocks
Create an org file, eg.
literate-clojure.org in the root of the Clojure project.
Write the text of the document and use
, b d to add a code block, selecting
clojure as the language.
:results value after
clojure in the code block
In the code block write your clojure code, eg
(+ 1 2 3)
C-c C-c to evaluate the code block at the cursor point. The result is pasted underneath the code block.
