Embeddable Common-Lisp

EQL - Embedded Qt Lisp

Written by jjgarcia on 2010-06

Cut&past from the mailing list, here comes an exciting announcement!!!

OK, so we already have very nice Qt bindings for CL (CommonQt, cl-smoke). But what about an ECL embedded solution, with exactly 0 dependencies?

  • most of QtGui (+ overriding virtuals)

  • interactive SLIME (needs a small patch, but no threads)

  • unicode

  • internationalization

  • dynamically loadable UIs

  • cross-platform

  • no CLOS

  • no GC (not a real problem, see notes in documentation)

Tested (with SLIME) in Linux, OSX, WinXP + VS 2008 Express: * ECL 10.4.1 (unicode) * Qt 4.6.2. * SLIME from CVS (2010-06-01)

BTW, you do NOT want to test this with ECL from CVS/git because it is right now evolving very fast and in a probably unstable state. Use the last stable release instead (Juanjo)
