Nice, and congrats to the wukix Team for their effort. However, will Apple accept those apps in it's store? There was this guy who wrote a game in Gambit Scheme (iirc) and was rejected back then. This seems to be the same process here (generate C code from Lisp and glue it toether with GUI code), just with CL.

Apple no longer cares what language you use, as long as new code isn't downloaded to distributed apps after installation. So it's okay to use CL as long as there is no facility for interpretation of CL downloaded from the net.

I think Apple will accept anything compiled with mocl. A similar project is RubyMotion (for Ruby obviously) and it seems to have no problem with Apple.

Applications are open for YC Winter 2018
