Hi there Clojurians,
I am in the process of making a switch from vim to emacs to take advantage of cider. Everything is going pretty well so far, but I have one nagging issue I would like to be able to solve.
I am working on an interactive text adventure that takes input from stdin (read-line) every turn. When I use lein directly, I enter text directly into the repl and hit enter. In emacs, however, the minibuffer becomes “Stdin:” and I have to enter text there; any text entered directly into the repl is not evaluated. This is a little disconcerting when I am live-coding as 1) the prompt is not where I have the repl and 2) while the minibuffer is occupied other commands do not often work (for instance C-x o does not switch buffers).
Is there a way to enter input directly into the repl and leave the minibuffer free? Am I just handling the whole situation incorrectly?
