Ask HN: Which Lisp has the best TUI libraries?
3 points by cybernautique 70 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 5 comments
I've been getting imto LISP recently. I like Racket, but there doesn't seem to be many (any?) TUI libraries. I much prefer TUIs to GUIs, so I can write applications that target both my phone (via termux) and all my other various devices.

Clojure can use any Java library easily.

There are implementations of / libraries for Common Lisp that interact with the JVM and/or the CLR.

Yeah, fair; I'd read that Clojure runs on the JVM, I just hadn't really put 2 and 2 together on that.

ABCl (Armed Bear Common Lisp) is a Common Lisp that runs in the JVM.


Emacs Lisp

Another really good point that I just failed to take into account. I've always been amazed at how well Emacs Just Works between its TUI and GUI.
