while trying to port some Clojure code to Clojurescript, I encountered a problem in my test suite when trying to check a list of function specs symbols using cljs.spec.test.alpha/check.

Here is a small scenario to reproduce the issue:

(ns spec.check.problem
[clojure.spec.alpha :as s]
[clojure.spec.gen.alpha :as gen]
[clojure.spec.test.alpha :as stest]

(defn foo
(inc x))

(s/fdef foo
:args (s/cat :x int?)
:ret int?)

(def list-of-specs

(stest/check `[foo]) ; => OK

(stest/check list-of-specs) ; => Unable to resolve symbol: list-of-specs in this context

The above example work with Clojure but not with ClojureScript. Is that intended or is this a bug ?

I have used Clojure 1.10.1 and Clojurescript 1.10.758 for my tests.

In CLJS check is a macro and therefore a lot less flexible unfortunately.

Not a bug.
