Ok was just able to try it out briefly on OSX.

- Installation went smoothly, no problems.

- Explicit docs/instructions on how to start and connect to the repl would 
be good. I was able to get it connected but it was unclear if the repl 
should be started from within VS code, or from a terminal then only connect 
to it from VS code.

- The commands in the command pallet could be prefixed with a "clj: " or 
perhaps "clojure: " or something like that. Other plugins I've used(e.g. 
elm) do this so it's easy  to know which commands are associated with the 
extension and which are part of the editor.

- code completion is working just fine.

- Docstrings don't seem to work for thread first  (-> xxx)? I also noticed 
that it took some time after initial repl connect for the docstrings to 
become available, probably some indexing delay because my laptop is 
old+slow, initially they showed "Docstring not found". Also the docstring 
not found message pops up for all characters on hover of mouse over things 
such as parenthesis.

- I found a command to eval the entire file which worked good. Is there a 
way to send selected expressions to a repl yet?

- If I had one feature request it would be for inline results a-la 
LightTable. Any plans for something like that?

Overall this is a great start, thank you very much for getting the ball 
rolling and building this extension!
