JSX in Common Lisp

Embedded JSX syntax

To enable JSX syntax, evaluate:

(jsx:enable-jsx-syntax)

JSX elements are specified with #<tag></tag>

Example:

(who:with-html-output-to-string (html) 
           (let ((hello "asdf")) 
             #<lala aaa="asd {when nil "false"}" yes={hello}>
             {loop 
             for x from 1 to 10
                 do #<p class="{when t "asdf"}">{hello}</p>}
             </lala>))

Result:

=> "<lala aaa='asd ' yes='asdf'>
             <p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p><p class='asdf'>asdf</p>
             </lala>"

At the moment, the rendering is done using CL-WHO, but other backends implementations are also possible:

Macro expansion of JSX above:

(WITH-OUTPUT-TO-STRING (HTML NIL)
  (CL-WHO:WITH-HTML-OUTPUT (HTML NIL :PROLOGUE NIL :INDENT NIL)
    (LET ((HELLO "asdf"))
      (PROGN
       (CL-WHO:HTM
        (:LALA :AAA
         (WITH-OUTPUT-TO-STRING (#:ATTR755)
           (WRITE-STRING "asd " #:ATTR755)
           (LET ((#:ATTRVAL756 (WHEN NIL "false")))
             (WHEN #:ATTRVAL756 (PRINC #:ATTRVAL756 #:ATTR755))))
         :YES HELLO
         (CL-WHO:STR "
             ")
         (CL-WHO:STR
          (LOOP FOR X FROM 1 TO 10
                DO (PROGN
                    (CL-WHO:HTM
                     (:P :CLASS
                      (WITH-OUTPUT-TO-STRING (#:ATTR757)
                        (LET ((#:ATTRVAL758 (WHEN T "asdf")))
                          (WHEN #:ATTRVAL758 (PRINC #:ATTRVAL758 #:ATTR757))))
                      (CL-WHO:STR HELLO)))
                    NIL)))
         (CL-WHO:STR "
             ")))
       NIL))))
