Roswell - Common Lisp environment setup Utility.
Roswell is a Lisp implementation installer/manager, launcher, and much more!
Roswell started out as a command-line tool with the aim to make installing and managing Common Lisp implementations really simple and easy.
Roswell has now evolved into a full-stack environment for Common Lisp development, and has many features that makes it easy to test, share, and distribute your Lisp applications. With Roswell, we aim to push the Common Lisp community to a whole new level of productivity.
Roswell is still in beta. Despite this, the basic interfaces are stable and not likely to change. Roswell currently works well on Unix-like platforms such as Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD. Roswell also works on other operating systems, but currently some parts or features might be missing or unstable.
Checkout issues list if you are interested in what's lacking.
Installation, Dependency & Usage
See our github wiki. We provide prebuilt binaries for homebrew on OSX, AUR on Arch and also on Windows.
- Implementation Manager (similar to CIM)
- Scripting environment (similar to cl-launch)
- Building utility (similar to buildapp)
- Novel : Easier setup for initializing a script
- Novel : Better integration to the command-line interface (Bash completion, etc)
- Novel : Infrastructure for bundling/installing the scripts to/from a quicklisp system
- Novel : Better support for Windows environment (tested exhaustively)
- Novel : Better integration to CI environment (e.g. Travis-CI, CircleCI, Coveralls)
Roswell has git-like subcommands which resemble that of cl-launch, buildapp and CIM.

Managing/Installing Several Lisp Installations
$ ros install # displays a list of all installable implementations $ ros install sbcl-bin # default sbcl $ ros install sbcl # The newest released version of sbcl $ ros install ccl-bin # default prebuilt binary of ccl $ ros install sbcl/1.2.0 # A specific version of sbcl $ ros list installed sbcl # Listing the installed implementations $ ros run -- --version # check which implementation is used SBCL 1.2.15 $ ros use sbcl/1.2.3 # change the default implementation
To use an implementation that was not installed by roswell, use i.e.
ros use sbcl/system.
The list of supported implementations continues to grow!
It is also possible to install scripts using
$ ros install qlot # will install a program from quicklisp $ ros install fukamachi/qlot # will install it from the GitHub
To add installable scripts into the system, you need to put roswell
scripts (files having
.ros extensions) into a
Take a look at qlot's roswell/qlot.ros.
Scripting with Roswell
$ ros init Usage: ros init [template] name [options...] $ ros init fact Successfully generated: fact.ros $ emacs fact.ros ## editing the fact.ros ... $ cat fact.ros #!/bin/sh #|-*- mode:lisp -*-|# #| exec ros -Q -- $0 "$@" |# (defun fact (n) (if (zerop n) 1 (* n (fact (1- n))))) (defun main (n &rest argv) (declare (ignore argv)) (format t "~&Factorial ~D = ~D~%" n (fact (parse-integer n)))) $ ./fact.ros 10 Factorial 10 = 3628800

Naming Origin 'roswell'
I felt making it easier to use Lisp for people is a kind of making opportunity for humanbeings to mingle with alien technology. I recall ‘roswell incident’ by the concept. I'm not sure what you feel.
- keens/cim : similar project that is implemented in shellscript.I motivated to implement roswell by seeing this project.
- cl-launch : influenced by the project of command line parameters design.
