Makefile Lisp Projects
A curated list of awesome Common Lisp frameworks, libraries and other shiny stuff.Project mention: Common Lisp Books | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-20
Hunchentoot is the most popular as a server (and I suspect most people wrap their deployment with either nginx or apache) though two frameworks listed on https://github.com/CodyReichert/awesome-cl#web-frameworks worth checking out depending on your preferences are Radiance and Lucerne. Link also has other related web stuff. On the front-end there are a few projects floating around that look to be aimed at replicating some of the concepts and workflows from the ClojureScript world for SPAs but I don't think any of them are really ready.
I'm not sure it's worth it unless you just want to write CL almost exclusively. It's cool to have more variation on different deployment (or even "do it in production") workflows available to fit your tastes, from something like PHP's/CGI's copy/edit files loaded each request, to a more conservative shutdown-deploy-restart cycle, to connecting via SSH and then inspecting/debugging/editing the live program through a forwarded REPL socket in your favorite editor just as if you were doing it locally.
Ferret is a free software lisp implementation for real time embedded control systems. (by nakkaya)Project mention: Learning Clojure made me return back to C/C++ | reddit.com/r/Clojure | 2021-07-23
fyi there's some middle ground via ferret if you want to mix the two in the future. I think janet lang is more full featured, borrowing ideas from clojure while targeting simple embedding alongside c.
