Bosco How-To

Mikel Evins has written a how-to called “Creating Applications with OpenMCL and Bosco”:

Using OpenMCL, the excellent free Common Lisp compiler from Gary Byers, you can build Carbon and Cocoa applications that work on Mac OS X. The reason more people don't do it is that it's not obvious how to build such applications. To make it a little easier and more obvious, I created an application template named Bosco.


In this guide we'll go step-by-step through the process of getting and installing OpenMCL and Bosco, then through building an application with them. We'll see how to use Bosco's features to build a Carbon application, and how to build user-interface resources with Apple's Interface Builder and integrate them into Lisp applications. A later version of this guide will add a section on how to build a Cocoa application; the process is very similar.

He illustrates using an Interface Builder-created GUI from within OpenMCL, even.
