    CIEL Is an Extended Lisp. Scripting with batteries included.

    Nice article, I learned a couple tricks.

    A first gotcha:

    > you could just replace it with… #!/usr/bin/sbcl –load /home/youruser/.sbclrc –script

    this doesn't work, since a shebang only accepts one argument.

    ---

    There are 2 main caveats to the described approach: starting SBCL like this from sources and not from a binary takes a little time. And you don’t have batteries included. Want a HTTP client, a CSV parser? You have to quickload them and this adds up in the startup time.

    We can rely on long-running images in the editor and run stuff from there, bypassing the terminal altogether, or build binaries, or try other approaches (Lish shell, a lisp server https://notabug.org/quasus/lserver/)

    But that’s why I started CIEL, CL with batteries included. You can get a binary and run scripts that start fast and can do common tasks. It’s also a superset of useful libraries that you can quickload or use with a core image (for a fast startup in your editor).

    It’s in beta, polishing phase.
