Is anyone really using Portacle in 2020?
iirc it’s the recommended setup in the common lisp subreddit.
IMO the online resources for CL have improved greatly the last couple of years. I mean, common-lisp.net is looking nice, what a revolution!
And the resources and tooling in general have improved. People have less and less ground to bash CL :)
We saw 2 new CL books published in 2020, implementations are active, Google (I mean, Google, woaaa) still uses and hacks on SBCL, we saw four job announces in a month on reddit… something’s happening, smart guys should jump in!
There is a QT5 wrapper but it is specific to ECL: https://gitlab.com/eql/EQL5
Also there’s a nice blog to follow: http://40ants.com/lisp-project-of-the-day/
