Dandelion – Eclipse Plugin for Lisp

Posted by Michael on April 12, 2008

I tried this several weeks ago, but it is only for PPC and not Intel Mac.

I concacted Michael, the developer, and he provided the source so that I can try and make the plugin for Intel Macs. Interesting, haven’t done any Eclipse plugin before. Hopefully I am successful 🙂

Lisp playground crashed

Posted by Michael on April 1, 2008

My Lisp server crashed today and my Lisp playground is offline. Have to look tomorrow what happend.

Edit: Crashed or not, that is the question. The SBCL server process was finished, no error. Maybe my virtual host was restarted ?

iPod Touch (Jailbreak -> Apps -> Lisp ?)

Posted by Michael on March 23, 2008

Got an iPod Touch /w 32 GB as a present for my 50’s birthday. Wow ! It’s really a fantastic gadget 🙂 Love it 🙂
Had little problems with my WiFi connections, but it works now too. But it’s “only” 802.11g will buy/upgrade to a new Airport Express Station.

Didn’t try jailbreak’ing yet, as there might be problems with this version of the IPod.
But would really be interesting if installing and using Lisp could be possible ! Just need a dialect with low memory footprint or an embedded one.
Now I’m really torn between many chairs *lol*

  • my Lisp playground works without any problems
  • got a new huge Delphi project to work on
  • still have to get with my lessons on OS X development
  • a friend is interested in some IPhone / IPod touch development
  • and there is interest in OS X on normal PC machines
  • and last but not least I’m waiting for my Mac Pro /w 16 GB + 2 Graphic cards
    but no Raid yet will use a network storage

Out of town

Posted by Michael on March 14, 2008

Was on a business trip to Rome. Only a short trip, but met such friendly people there, it was fantastic. Have to relax over the weekend now 🙂

BTW: Hunchentoot is now online nearly two weeks without any problem ! Now I have to start next level of deveopment.

SBCL x86-64 working (suse64)

Posted by Michael on March 4, 2008

Finally I managed to get a working 64 bit threaded sbcl enviroment working with hunchentoot on SUSE64 /w 400 MB RAM.

Necessary changes :

  • forget about cffi and uffi tests (at least for now) got them at least partially working
  • in cffi/src/libraries.lisp had to change (defparameter *cffi-feature-suffix-map* … (cffi-features:unix . “.so.0”))
    I don’t like this change, cause now every lib needs to be symlinked but haven’t found other working solutions yet
  • run sbcl with “–dynamic-space-size 256


  • no make’ing of any *.so (needed by clsql for example) make them by hand
  • no database or any storage backend yet got clsql installed, made needed *.so’s by hand

Now I leave it running for some days to check for memory consumption and errors.

Edit /March 06

  • 2 days working, so far no errors, adding basic pages again
  • clsql connects to a MySQL database
