|Description||structural editing of S-expression data|
Paredit is a minor mode for performing structured editing of S-expression data. The typical example of this would be Lisp or Scheme source code.
Paredit helps keep parentheses balanced and adds many keys for moving S-expressions and moving around in S-expressions.

SLIME’s REPL has the very annoying habit of grabbing DEL which interferes with paredit’s normal operation. To alleviate this problem use the following code:
;; Stop SLIME's REPL from grabbing DEL, ;; which is annoying when backspacing over a '(' (defun override-slime-repl-bindings-with-paredit () (define-key slime-repl-mode-map (read-kbd-macro paredit-backward-delete-key) nil)) (add-hook 'slime-repl-mode-hook 'override-slime-repl-bindings-with-paredit)
