  • Turning Linux Into a Usable Lispy Machine?
    9 projects | | 25 Oct 2022
    I have been doing research trying to figure out what software in my current toolchain has a Lisp, specifically Common Lisp, alternative. Having looked around I have been able to find a few thing.
  • How Do You Setup Workspaces Properly?
    2 projects | | 19 Oct 2022
    I am trying to setup my workspaces for stumpwm, but am running into a wall due to not being able to find much documentation, is there is even support, for a few things I want to do. For some background, I am coming from dwm which I have used for a few years and even forked a few times. In dwm I had a rather simple, but extremely useful, setup where I would store specific types of programs on specific tags. I was able to figure out getting this done in stumpwm and it working just fine. The main issue with this portion of my workspace setup is that the Default workspace still exists. I have tried to figure out how to delete it, but cannot. I know how to rename it, so I could just do that and use it for my terminals, but the issue arises where I have no idea how to change it from the default stacking layout to the dynamic one. Any advice? Additionally, is there a way to get something like dwm's fakefullscreen?
  • How Do I Unbind all Default Bindings and Bind Keys With Shift?
    2 projects | | 18 Oct 2022
    My brain hurts, I did this and now it just works.

    That doesn't work either :( I made the changes here. When press bindings that use shift they either do nothing, such as the case with these or I get an error saying that the key is not defined such as with the shift bindings in chains
  • Terminal Emulators Written in Common Lisp?
    2 projects | | 17 Oct 2022
    I am working on rebuilding my software toolchain around Common Lisp, because it is amazing. I have already started moving to sbcl from zsh, thanks to help from this subreddit and a friend, as well as moving away from my dwm fork to stumpwm. I am looking at what programs I have left to find replacements for and I know I am moving to either lem or gnu emacs, hopefully lem, from nvim and nyxt from firefox, but there are three programs I cannot find CL replacements for, my terminal, screen locker, and dynamic menu. The last two will be a pain, I know, but with the terminal I was shocked to see little to nothing online. I was able to find CLIM implementations of terminal emulators, but the one I found which I lost the link to is built into a desktop environment; I also don't know if it would run under X11 or Wayland. I was curious if there was someone here who would know of a terminal emulator that was written in CL? It doesn't need to be fancy, in fact the less fancy the better. I am just trying to figure out if I refork st or if there is a CL terminal I can use.
  • How Would One Bind Prefix + Key + Key?

    Also, I apologise but did not push until late last night, here is my current stumpwm configuration in case it helps.

    I am unsure if you have interest, but is the final working product :D Thank you again!
  • How to Build a Proper Loading Order From ASDF?
    2 projects | | 1 Oct 2022
    I am unsure if this would have any impact, but I am making some changes (as well as this) to sbcl; none that should cause this though.
  • Is There Any Method For Checking If REPL Is Running As a Login Shell?
    5 projects | | 28 Sep 2022
    An update to my other comment. I can confirm that the issues I am having are due to cl-repl. I took my exact configuration, commented out the first line of my replrc.lisp, hardcoded a require for asdf, using find-package always returns nil for some reason with asdf I don't know why, and then symlinked the file to ~/.sbclrc and everything loaded fine and ran fine. I am unsure what is up with cl-repl. I think I would rather use sbcl anyway, but I just need to figure out tab-completion, sytan highlighting if possible, and then determine how to check if asdf is installed to load it (I know I can always require it, but I want to proof this configuration in case I use it on a repl that does not autoload asdf).

    I am currently moving over to a repl, either cl-repl or sbcl with some interactive extensions, and am hitting one issue. I do not use a display manager to start a graphical environment, but instead use my .login as a script to start either my graphical environment or my multiplexor. While porting this to common-lisp would be trivial, the one issue is that it would run every time I spawn a REPL. As far as I know there are no versions of a .login file for either cl-repl or sbcl. Does anyone know if there is a way to check if a REPL is running as a login shell or of an extension to implement this functionality? If not it is not the end of the world as I can just write an explicit function and manually call it, but it would be nice to have.
