extend-type works with non-constant expressions as its type:

(extend-type (class 1) proto (protof [this]))

However, in this case this will get tagged with (class 1), which is clearly wrong; the doc explicitely states that the args will be proberly type-hinted: "(link: ..) Propagates the class as a type hint on the first argument of all fns."

I don't know if extend-type is not supposed to work with non-constant Classes, in which case it should be stated in the doc or if the current behaviour is wrong.

Eastwood as of around version 0.2.1 (or maybe have to wait until not-yet-released 0.2.2) will warn about such incorrect tags, if the :wrong-tag linter is enabled -- it is by default. The section of Eastwood's documentation on this linter has a subsection specifically on extend-type and extend-protocol, primarily written so Andy can have a place to refer to this later after he forgets the details again.


(you have to scroll down a page or two to get to the subsection on extend-type / extend-protocol)
