A local systems loader for common lisp.
I was quite annoyed with not being able to store my systems in the root dirs of my project without jumping through hoops. I realized that for newcomers to lisp this was a very interesting experience. So I made super-loader. Super loader is very easy to use.
How to install:
Since this is not on quicklisp yet you have to git clone this into this folder:
This is so quicklisp can see and use it.
How to use:
;; The entirety of this tutorial can be found in: ;; "tutorial.lisp" (eval-when (:compile-toplevel :load-toplevel :execute) ;; This is how to load up super-loader. (ql:quickload :super-loader) (use-package :super-loader)) ;; Great, now we have it loaded up, a true miracle. ;; Notice that we are walking into another eval-when. ;; This is because in the last scope of eval-when, ;; super-load still didn't exist as a symbol! (eval-when (:compile-toplevel :load-toplevel :execute) ;; Let's load up that "my-cool-system" system! ;; To do a super-load, all you have to do, is this. (super-load "my-cool-system") (use-package :my-cool-system)) ;; Now we can use it! (cool) ;;"yeah, that's pretty cool. 8)" ;; But wait, there's one more thing I need to show you! ;; There is a hidden system in this tutorial. (Dramatic, I know!) (eval-when (:compile-toplevel :load-toplevel :execute) ;; As you can see, you can build out a folder hierarchy using "/". ;; Notice: The end folder does not require "/". ;; Also, I don't recommend you put a "/" at the end either. It does it for you. :P (super-load "my-cool-system/maybe-theres-a-secret-in-here/almost-there/my-secret-system") (use-package :my-secret-system) ) ;; Now what's the secret? (the-secret) ;; I suppose you're going to have to run the tutorial and find out!
I hope this package makes your development adventure into lisp easier and more fun. Thanks for even checking it out, I hope you have a nice day.
