SLIME is a Emacs mode for Common Lisp development. Inspired by existing systems such Emacs Lisp and ILISP, we are working to create an environment for hacking Common Lisp in.
This frugal page is an invitation to learn more about what's going on.
SLIME works with GNU Emacs versions 21 and later, and with XEmacs version 21 on Unix, OSX, and Win32.
The currently supported Common Lisp implementations are:
Our source repository is hosted at github: https://github.com/slime/slime.
You can also grab the latest release.
We have a manual (as pdf) that explains what SLIME can do and how to use it.
Various tutorials about SLIME are available on the 'net:
You can report bugs at the bugtracker.
The email@example.com mailing list is used
for all SLIME discussions. This is where to ask questions and
generally participate in the development.
To post messages to that list you must be subscribed.
Chatter about SLIME happens on the #slime channel in the Freenode IRC network.
SLIME is an Extension of SLIM, which was written by Eric Marsden in mid-2003. Luke Gorrie and Helmut Eller took over development to create SLIME as a traditional "open-source project." Since then the hacking has continued at a rapid pace as many more hackers joined the fray.
A (hopefully) complete list of code contributors appears in the SLIME manual.
