I love the quick feedback when working with Figwheel. I have my editor on the left and a browser on the right. After saving a file (which is one action which I have to do anyway) I see the result.
But when working on server code I have to do a lot more “actions” in my editor. I feel I am missing something.
Example: I have a namespace with some functions. The purpose of the namespace is to parse XML and build a map (EDN). The functions extract data, merge data and create a hierachy. To eval individual functions I need test data, so I create a comment with clojure code for laoding an XML file and calls to my functions.
Then I eval my namespace and then the functions from inside my “Rich” comments.
Now I fix a bug in my functions and would like to see the effects as soon as possible. But I have to eval the namespace (or the fixed function) and then navigate to my comments and eval the test code. Then navigate back to my function I am working on and so forth.
An alternative I tried is to put my test code to the bottom of my clojure file (not in an comment) and to eval the whole buffer after saving the file. This gets rid of jumping in code all the time, but it happened a few times, that I have commited my test code.
What workflow are you using? Is there a way to get feedback immediately after saving the file?
