    Why do you need to build them in when you can just load your favorite libraries that do these functions with , especially for http the great libraries by Fukamachi: parallel processing: etc.

    I'm very grateful that common lisp does not version up (like python), but you can always load a new or newer version of libraries with no impact on your core production code. (Such as a rewrite when the language gets a new version - this never happens with Common Lisp)

  • Common Lisp 3D graphics code repo - very preliminary
    3 projects | /r/Common_Lisp | 15 Jun 2022
    QUICKLISP comes with a regularly updated software distribution, see quicklisp-projects. This software distribution is pulled once when QUICKLISP is installed and can be later updated with (ql:update-all-dists). Once a project is added to the QUICKLISP dist, its updates are also added regularly and are available to users who care of issuing (ql:update-all-dists).

    The Common Lisp bindings to GTK can be installed with Quicklisp. If you don't already have Quicklisp installed, it's painless. See the Quicklisp website for more details, but here's an example of installing Quicklisp on Debian and configuring SBCL. The steps should be the same for any Linux distro and macOS.

    As for the packages themselves, you can look at the repository information for each package at and use that to get the packages yourself manually. Most of them just use the latest commit in the package's respective git repos. A few use specific tags. Some, have to be gotten by other means. It is always possible, by looking at the quicklisp update data listing all the packages, to get the url for the package tarballs on the quicklisp server and download them manually.
