A fun implementation of a lisp-like language, made just for embedding into your project! The primary goals of this project are ease of embedding, good portability, and excellent documentation. Check out the documentation or grab the source and give it a try:

$ make bin/funlisp
$ bin/funlisp
> (+ 5 5)
> ^D
$ bin/funlisp scripts/hello_world.lisp
hello world

Since funlisp is aimed at being easily embeddable, the tools/ directory is full of sample C programs using the library. The funlisp interpreter and script runner is an example of such a program. There are simple REPL's and script runners as well as examples of function calls between C and lisp.

I still consider this project to be in a beta state. Some small breaking changes are still happening to the API, but they are getting smaller. I hope to cut a v1 release soon, but in the meantime feel free to build a copy and use it locally in your project.

You can also install system-wide from source - see INSTALL.md.

Distribution packages don't exist yet, but when they do, they will be listed here.


I'm hoping to build a clean and understandable lisp. Your contributions, in terms of reproducible bug reports or code submissions, are welcome. Please feel free to submit a bug report on Github or via email (see the git logs for my email address). Patch submissions are welcome again over Github, or via email (man git send-email).

This is part of a long line of lisp interpreters I've written. Hopefully they're getting better, not worse :P
