Free software lisp projects

Postby david » Thu Jan 08, 2009 1:14 pm

Hello

I am a new lisp user. I would hear your suggestions and ideas for new lisp projects in order to work on it. It is a good way to learn Lisp in depth. It would nice if other new lispers join it :). Finally, do you know any active free software lisp projects which want help?

Thanks in advance, and greetings.

StumpWM is always looking for assistance.
Wouldn't even have to run it as your main WM, just xnest it and play around.

From the little hacking I have done on StumpWM, it looks like the code is approachable (unlike, say Maxima).

And yeah, use xnest and not Xephyr--for some reason Xephyr mangles the key mappings for me.

If you're in to 3D stuff, cl-glfw provides a nice interface to raw OpenGL. A useful but not overly ambitious project would be to implement an object loader.

This link might be useful.
