Before starting, make sure you have installed SBCL. Then get the quicklisp file which enables you to bootstrap and install Quicklisp.
cd ~/downloads curl -O http://beta.quicklisp.org/quicklisp.lisp sbcl --load quicklisp.lisp
Now you are in the REPL and you can install Quicklisp. By default, it will be installed
~/quicklisp, but I like to keep my home directory clean and install it in
~/.local/share/quicklisp. Thus the
(quicklisp-quickstart:install :path "~/.local/share/quicklisp/")
I also prefer Quicklisp to always be available when I start SBCL, so I add it to my init file:
That’s it! Happy Lisping!
