Introduction

SLIME (Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Emacs) provides a development environment for SBCL (detailed in this article), CMUCL, CLISP and other Lisp implementations.

The components required are:

  • emacs
  • sbcl
  • slime

Installation

# pacman -S emacs sbcl slime-cvs
Note:
Template error: are you trying to use the = sign? Visit Help:Template#Escape template-breaking characters for workarounds.

Configuration

From the .INSTALL file:

To make use of slime, add the following lines to your init file:

(setq inferior-lisp-program "/path/to/lisp-executable")
(add-to-list 'load-path "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/slime/")
(require 'slime)
(slime-setup)

Then run M-x slime from within emacs.
