  • sxc

    sxc is an 'S-Expression C' transpiler for generating C code using macros written in Common Lisp

  • coalton

    Coalton is an efficient, statically typed functional programming language that supercharges Common Lisp.

    And I don't understand why. Lisp is known to be versatile, and people tend to do all kinds of amazing things with it. See Coalton for instance. Everyone still thinks Lisp is a language to create languages, right? Well, creating a language may involve enforcing all kinds of verification, and that's awesome. Starting from a very simple language, evolving into something that better fits whatever you're trying to do. That's exactly how Lisp is advertised and I intend to live the dream. :)
