MCLIDE is a free open source Macintosh IDE for Lisp implementations  
on any platform. It's a double-clickable, stand-alone development  
environment that connects to a Lisp either locally or through the  

The first public beta of MCLIDE 1.0 is now available from:


This version of MCLIDE works with Clozure CL (a.k.a. OpenMCL) and  
Macintosh Common Lisp (MCL) as target lisp implementations. Support  
for a number of other lisp implementations on different platforms is  
under development.

MCLIDEs user interface is based on the mature IDE of Macintosh Common  
Lisp. It provides rich interactive development and debugging tools in  
the form of dialogs interacting with the target Lisp.

MCLIDE provides a consistent developer experience regardless of the  
Lisp. It can be used on the same computer as the Lisp system, or  
target one or more Lisp implementations on other computers or  
operating systems.

Special thanks to Peter Paine for substantial feedback and  
suggestions. His involvement has been essential in moving MCLIDE  
forward. Glen Foy has provided a lisp syntax styling utility as an  
optional plug-in. MCLIDE has also benefitted from contributions by  
Shannon Spires and Madhu, among others.
