You can see an example at here.

fukamachi also published his init files on GitHub. https://github.com/fukamachi/.lem

Electron version (Experiment)

Electron version is in the experimental stage.

If you try, please follow below steps.

$ node -v  # check if your nodejs is 8.9.3LTS+.
v8.9.3
$ npm -v
5.5.1
$ npm install -g cxxxr/lem   # install lem-electron
$ lem-electron               # Electron version will start

Electron  

Lem on platforms without SBCL thread support (e.g. raspberry pi3)

If installation fails due to bordeaux-threads, there is no thread provided by SBCL on your PC.
You need to use Clozure Common Lisp (CCL) instead of SBCL.

$ ros install ccl-bin
$ ros use ccl-bin
$ ros install cxxxr/lem

And also need to specify frontend to ncurses-ccl. You can launch lem as follows:

$ lem --frontend ncurses-ccl
