# mult: hypothetical clojure(script) extension for vscode https://github.com/cljctools/mult
## rationale - clojure(script) IDE experience is no minor issue - it's the thing between you and programs - the editor and the extension - should be long-term satisfactory, enjoyable and even inspiring - should be open source - should be written in clojure, or at least the extension should be written in clojure(script) - for simplicity - for asynchrony done via processes - the extension should - support multiple repl connections from one editor window - have a file configuration (for user and projects), where connections and repls can be specified (to not depend on key-combo connection sequences) - be simpler, code-wise and feature-wise - making an editor in clojure is, no doubt, a goal, but the extension for an existing editor is a logical first step - the work of making an extension is trasferrable even into an editor written in clojure, so the work won't be lost - existing editor + extension combos - Emacs + Cider - perfect, if you're into it - IntelliJ + Cursive - both closed source, Cursive comes with conditions - VSCode + Calva - can be considered the current best option - VSCode is the undeniable best open source editor - Calva works perfectly, but is written in typescript - nodejs runtime is undesirable, but not a problem Should mult be made ?
