Description

This project is dedicated to developing more readable format(s) for Lisp-based languages (such as Common Lisp and Scheme) and implementing those formats (readers, pretty-printers, editor macros, etc.). MIT license preferred, to spread them widely.

Features

  • Infix notation, e.g., {3 + 4} in addition to (+ 3 4)
  • Optional traditional function notation, e.g., f(...) in addition to (f ...)
  • Optional indentation support greatly reduces the need for parentheses
  • Works on any data or program (it is general and homoiconic)

    Excellent! Programmers that come to Lisp and Scheme will have an easier time to adapt to these wonderful languages.

    And I have almost gave up on Lisp/Scheme.... I can't believe that this project existed from 2006 and almost no one knows about it... What a shame!

    It's hard to overstate the importance of this project. Finally, a readable (and writable!) syntax for Lisp and Scheme! This has made me think about trying these languages seriously for general use (rather than just Emacs Lisp!) for the first time.
