If there are 110 people on this list, I can't possibly be the last
to introduce himself ...
I'm Daniel Barlow, I live in London, UK, and I like Common Lisp and
free software. Often both at once.
Araneida is a small extensible web server that runs under CMUCL. It
uses a sockets library of my own devising, so should in theory also
port to SBCL relatively simply despite that having none of the CMUCL
CLiki is a very simple "collaborative hypertext authoring enviromnent"
(sic) inspired by and quite closely based on Ward Cunningham's
Wikiwiki software. It's an Araneida application. I wrote it in free
time over the past week; it's the most fun I've had in ages.
CLiki is also an intended-to-be-comprehensive collection of links to
and resources for free software implemented in Common Lisp and
available on Unix-like systems. Because anybody can edit - and is
encouraged to edit - any page, it should in theory stay reasonably up
... has links to everything I've mentioned here, and more. Yes,
that really is supposed to say "ww".
Downloadable versions of both CLiki and Araneida will be available
during the course of this next week. Anon-CVS access, if anyone wants
it, ditto as soon as I find a good explanation of how to set it up
securely. In case of curiosity, a CLiki content archive is created
hourly and available from http://ww.telent.net/cliki.tar.gz
Enjoy. Leave me a note on the site :-)
