  • C-Lisp Implementations for microcontrollers?
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/lisp | 1 Dec 2021
    Also, if the microcontroller you're working with is an ESP32 chip, you may be able to use use one of the lisp-to-Lua transpiled languages (urn or fennel) with something like Lua RTOS or NodeMCU. Not entirely sure how well this works in practice, but in theory it should be possible. Of the two, Fennel's probably more likely to behave well when used like this because it's more like a thin translation layer on top of Lua, but Urn's probably going to feel more comfortable to use because it feels like this weird mix of CL and Racket design.

    For Lua-based lisps I kind of prefer Urn, which is more batteries-included and just feels better to me overall. Both are interesting though, if for no other reason, because Lua desperately needs macros in some form. :) Another interesting Lisp transpiled language is Amulet, which is an ML-style language somewhere between Haskell and OCaml in style. Something that's interesting about these Lua-based languages to me is they understand that Lua's an embeddable language and most of them have a way to generate Lua output that can be used wherever Lua's used, like in game modding

    I don't know how much of reloading you need. I did something like that many moons ago. See here: https://github.com/SquidDev/urn/issues/12
