Replete Namespaces

In order to make Replete more useful, some native I/O facilities have been added to the JavaScript engine running in Replete and these have been exposed via a few namespaces. To make things easier to use, the functions in these namespaces adhere fairly closely to existing Clojure / ClojureScript analogs.

The code for these namespaces is are always available—you just need to require them.

These namespaces comprise

To explore these namespaces, you can evaluate (dir replete.core), for example, to see the symbols in replete.core, and then use doc to see the docs for any of the symbols.

Online documentation for the namespaces is available: Replete SDK.


(Online docs)

This namespace includes basic I/O capabilities like slurp, spit and read-line. The I/O facilities are expressed in protocols defined in replete.core modeled after those in Clojure, like IReader, IOutputStream, etc., and these capabilities cooperate with facilities defined in

Replet core also hosts some dynamic vars of interest like *in* and *out*.

The replete.core/file-seq function imitates clojure.core/file-seq.

The replete.core namespace defines dynamic functions like resolve, ns-resolve, and intern.

This namespace defines a lot of the IOFactory machinery, imitating

Additionally, filesystem facilities like file, delete-file, and file-attributes are available.


(Online docs)

This namespace provides facilities for interacting with HTTP servers. For example:

(replete.http/get "")

will fetch the main page of the Replete website, returning the status code, headers, and body in a map structure.
