The list is active, but not as active as it used to be. The CCL developers can speak for themselves about the state of CCL development.

As far as Cocoa goes, I still think the Cocoa interface in CCL was done extremely well. A number of years ago I put together a pretty extensive amount of code that built on top of that. A few other people, including the CCL developers, did similar things. For a while my code was distributed as one of the user contribs to CCL, but that is no longer done. You can still get my code at https://github.com/plkrueger/CocoaInterface. But Cocoa has been a constantly moving target and I have not maintained that code for some time now, so there may well be issues with it, I honestly do not know for sure. My own work has evolved to do more web interfaces and I occasionally interface with Python to get access to things like graph libraries. If you try my code and run into issues, feel free to contact me directly and I can try to help.
