What is and how to use the Common Lisp Directory
The Common Lisp Directory is intended to be the one stop shop for Common Lisp resources.
By resources we mean
In the future, when this site is hosted on a server with more bandwidth, it will also serve as a mirror for all the Common Lisp libraries.
Anybody can and is invited to submit items to help fill the Directory. To avoid spamming/trolling and to ensure a consistent quality of the information displayed, the items must be validated by a maintainer before they appear effectively in the Directory
All the items and the tags can be annotated and commented. The notes and comments are not moderated but can be removed if they contain spam or if they become irrelevant. For instance a note signaling a broken link may be removed when that link is fixed.
Notes and comments are useful to complement the information present in the directory.
Interested people are also invited to add examples, tutorials, copies of REPL sessions, etc linked to libraries/tools/implementations etc.
If you have questions or comments about CL Directory, you may want to subscribe to the mailing list: http://www.lispniks.com/mailman/listinfo/common-lisp-directory.
There are two kind of objects in the Common Lisp Directory: Tags and items
Tags are used for... tagging the items. They are organized in a main tag/sub-tab tree. In addition to these tag/sub-tag relation there are also "related tags" allowing to make any kind of graph with the tags.
Items are describing objects like libraries, implementations, tools, documents, organizations, events, people, etc.
Each kind of item has a set of predefined slots, like a download link for instance, as well as a free form description in text and HTML.
HTML documents are just HTML page where you can put anything you want
Each item or tag can be annotated and/or commented. Notes and comments are basically the same but their intent is different. Notes are for factual information or precisions about the items while comment are more for questions, opinions and general comments.
