Paredit might seem weird at first, but it really makes writing lisp a much more comfortable experience. This is especially useful in combination with the sexp movement functions (C-M-f forward, C-M-b back, C-M-u up, C-M-d down)

Prettier function names in clojure – Thanks to Paul Hobbs for the idea to extend this feature beyond simply the fn function.
