I'm new to Emacs (after 10+ years of Vim) and want to use it primarily for clojure.
Coming from Lighttable, one thing I absolute liked was the way it evaluated just the right sections of code no matter where I am. This is basically: Evaluating a paragraph surrounding the cursor position. Some examples (
|| represents the cursor,
$FROM ... TO$ represents what I'd like to have evaluated):
(comment $FROM (my-func ||[:test :one]) (xy)TO$ $FROM (defn [y] (let [x y] (println|| "xy"))) )TO$ )
So basically I want to evaluate the paragraph (Note: Not necessarily a top level form since I surround them in
(comment)). I have no knowledge of Elisp. I tried this as an effort.
(defun my-cider-eval-paragraph () (interactive ) (safe-excursion (mark-paragraph) (command-execute 'cider-eval-region)))
But I'm clearly making many mistakes. Edit: Actually, my example works if I just change
save-excursion. Funny, I actually think both spellings makes sense.
Thanks for reading.
