Top 6 Common Lisp Compiler Projects

  • GitHub repo sbcl

    Mirror of Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL)'s official repository

    Project mention: Python bytecode explained | | 2022-01-16

    See e.g. CMUCL and its latter day fork SBCL, type inferencing native lisp compilers (which also had a lot of influence on the direction of various other Lisp and other language compilers).

  • GitHub repo jscl

    A Lisp-to-Javascript compiler bootstrapped from Common Lisp

    Project mention: Common Lisp to JavaScript Compiler | | 2021-10-12
  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo ccl

    Clozure Common Lisp

    Project mention: Tell HN: My experience with Common Lisp as beginner | | 2022-01-11

    git clone ccl-dev

  • GitHub repo quilc

    The optimizing Quil compiler.

    Project mention: Internships at HRL Labs writing Common Lisp for quantum computers (US only) | | 2021-11-04

    For people who maybe already have a job, just want to dip their toes in, or some other life thing that prohibits them from being employed, I’ve done pro bono mentorship sessions to interested individuals, helping them contribute to open source software around this stack, like the quantum compiler. Always happy to discuss that for serious applicants.

  • GitHub repo CLPython

    An implementation of Python in Common Lisp

    Project mention: You loved running JavaScript in your web browser | | 2021-12-01

    we need to go deeper

  • GitHub repo one-more-re-nightmare

    A fast regular expression compiler in Common Lisp

    Project mention: LISP with GC in 436 bytes | | 2021-12-20

    Agree to disagree - I don't have the energy to remember operator precedence. One file from the regular expression compiler has most of the rewrite rules I read from the papers, except in S-expression syntax. There were a few bugs due to misreading precedence. Also c.f. Gerald Sussman talking about physics notation being a pain in the butt.

NOTE: The open source projects on this list are ordered by number of github stars. The number of mentions indicates repo mentiontions in the last 12 Months or since we started tracking (Dec 2020). The latest post mention was on 2022-01-16.
