Pretty includes some useful REPL utilities in the
install-pretty-exceptions function overrides several
internal Clojure functions to enable
This function is normally invoked for you
when Pretty is
used as a Leiningen plugin.
The remaining functions exist to help you make things pretty that don’t originate in the REPL. You will often see output in logs: EDN data perhaps, or often, raw exceptions.
If you have a REPL running, you can use the following functions to get a better view of that data:
copy function will return the current contents of the system clipboard
as a string.
This requires that AWT is running.
On OS X, you will see a window for your application start when you first invoke this function
format-exception functions can be invoked
with no arguments, in which case the call to
copy happens automatically.
Consult the API documentation for more details.
This will pretty-print the contents of the clipboard; the clipboard text is parsed as EDN.
This will parse a normal Java stack trace and format it for readability.
This will copy a string back on to the clipboard, so it can be pasted into another window.
(-> (copy) format-exception paste)
Sets up pretty exceptions before passing arguments to clojure.main/main; this is used when starting a REPL to ensure that pretty exception are enabled before starting to interact.
