MCLIDE is a free open source Macintosh IDE for Lisp implementations on any platform. It is a double-clickable, stand-alone GUI based lisp development environment that connects to a Lisp either locally or through the network. MCLIDE can automatically install most supported lisp implementations, making it easy to get going.
Lisp Development Environment
MCLIDEs user interface is based the mature IDE of Macintosh Common Lisp and Clozure CL. It provides rich interactive development and debugging tools in the form of dialogs interacting with the target Lisp (screen shots). The built-in programming editor has paren matching, automatic indentation and numerous shortcuts. It comes with plug-ins providing optional lisp syntax styling and symbol completion.
MCLIDE provides a consistent developer experience regardless of the Lisp. Use it on the same computer as your Lisp system, or target one or more Lisp implementations on other computers or operating systems.
Building a Better Lisp IDE
MCLIDE complements SLIME by providing an alternative for those that would like to start using Lisp without first becoming proficient with emacs. Your feedback is encouraged and appreciated to make MCLIDE more useful and beneficial.
