What is clojure-lsp API?#
clojure-lsp is commonly used in a text editor during code development, but since it knows and have all necessary features to handle clojure code, it's the ideal/reliable tool to manage your code outside the editor as well via multiple ways.
It has its own API containing the main features that can be used as:
API (JVM): Use from your REPL or any other library that wants to leverage clojure-lsp features programatically.
CLI: Use from your terminal as a tool to format, clean, check diagnostics from clojure-lsp executable directly.
CI: Need to check if your code is formatted/clean/doesn't contain any lint errors after push? Use it in your CI.
Lein plugin: Use all CLI features but without the need to install it on your machine, using directly as a leiningen plugin.
Babashka pod: Use clojure-lsp as a babashka pod for your bb program.
clojure-lsp will check for
.lsp/config.edn in the project or home dir, but it's possible to force override the settings via the
:settings option of the API or
--settings option of the CLI.
For all available settings, check the settings documentation.
