I poked around but I don’t seem to have them at the moment.

Around the last time I built the .ffi files with ffigen, I was also working on some code that parsed BridgeSupport XML files for the purpose of generating FFI calls into the Objective-C runtime.

That’s been a while—the latest GUI work I've done uses Electron for the sake of portability—and I don’t know what the status of BridgeSupport is now. I looked around a little and didn’t find any very recent BridgeSupport documentation from Apple.

I did find that RubyMotion is using a fork of Apple’s BridgeSupport tools that appears to have some fairly recent work going on (https://github.com/amirrajan/rubymotion-bridgesupport).

I guess I have to say that the best path forward for building native Mac GUIs with Lisp is unclear to me, unless I just punt and use Lispworks.
