    Project mention: Val, a high-level systems programming language | | 2023-07-18

    Clasp might be such a language, it seems.

  • jscl

    A Lisp-to-JavaScript compiler bootstrapped from Common Lisp

    Project mention: All Web frontend lisp projects | /r/lisp | 2023-05-23

    JSCL - A CL-to-JS compiler designed to be self-hosting from day one. Lacks CLOS, format and loop.

  • ccl

    Clozure Common Lisp

    Project mention: Clozure CL 1.12.2 | /r/Common_Lisp | 2023-08-10


  • quilc

    The optimizing Quil compiler.

    Project mention: Typed Lisp, a primer (2019) | | 2023-01-31

    Yes, they use it for their quantum compiler, at RHL Laboratories (it was maybe initiated even at Rigetti).

  • CLPython

    An implementation of Python in Common Lisp

  • one-more-re-nightmare

    A fast regular expression compiler in Common Lisp

    Project mention: Regular Expressions make me feel like a powerful wizard- that's not a good thing | | 2023-02-10

    Depends on your regex engine, and your non-regex solution. My engine (shameless self-plug rivals hand-written automata, having to load each character more-or-less* only once, and throws in vectorisation for simple search loops too. I would not want to write or maintain the generated code.

  • Mergify

Mergify's Merge Queue automates your pull request management & merging. It's fully integrated to GitHub & coordinated with any CI. Start focusing on code. Try Mergify for free.

  • Concrete-Syntax-Tree

    Concrete Syntax Trees represent s-expressions with source information

  • Cleavir

    an implementation-independent framework for creating Common Lisp compilers

  • scheme-to-c

    A scheme to c compiler

    Project mention: What makes Common Lisp interesting now a days? | /r/lisp | 2022-12-23

    That's all after you shared your PoC Python compiler, your PoC linear algebra compiler, and your PoC Scheme compiler, all written in Common Lisp.
