Topic: REPL for Lean 4

Scott Morrison (Apr 04 2023 at 23:55):

There is a primitive REPL for Lean 4 available at https://github.com/leanprover-community/repl.

From the README:

A read-eval-print-loop for Lean 4

Run using ./run.
Communicates via JSON on stdin and stdout.
Commands should be separated by blank lines.
Commands may be of the form

{ "cmd" : "import Mathlib.Data.List.Basic\ndef f := 2" }


{ "cmd" : "example : f = 2 := rfl", "env" : 3 }

The env field, if present,
must contain a number received in the env field of a previous response,
and causes the command to be run in the existing environment.

If there is no env field, a new environment is created.

You can only use import commands when you do not specify the env field.

You can backtrack simply by using earlier values for env.

The results are of the form

 [{"pos": {"line": 1, "column": 18},
   "endPos": {"line": 1, "column": 23},
   "goal": "⊢ Nat"}],
 [{"severity": "error",
   "pos": {"line": 1, "column": 23},
   "endPos": {"line": 1, "column": 26},
   "type mismatch\n  rfl\nhas type\n  f = f : Prop\nbut is expected to have type\n  f = 2 : Prop"}],
 "env": 6}

showing any messages generated, or sorries with their goal states.

Information is generated for tactic mode sorries,
but currently not for term mode sorries.

Scott Morrison (Apr 04 2023 at 23:55):

PRs (e.g. detecting term mode sorries as well, python bindings, etc) very welcome.

I created a PR that allows you to interface with the repl via a python package PR #5

Hi @Scott Morrison and @Zhangir Azerbayev, thanks for making this available!

Could you help me get the mathlib4 dependency running? I got a core dump with the following:

Thanks in advance!!

(I am not really familiar with the Lean4/Lake build system if the problems stems from that..)

Kyle Miller (May 03 2023 at 15:29):

@Fabian Glöckle Make sure you're using the same Lean toolchain as mathlib4. To do this, you can copy what's in mathlib4/lean-toolchain into your local lean-toolchain file at the root of your project. You're using 2023-03-17, but the newest mathlib is using 2023-04-20.

Fabian Glöckle (May 03 2023 at 15:35):

oh great thank you @Kyle Miller, problem solved!
