I’ve been playing with Wisp all week.
I like it a lot. I don’t think I’m going to use it for anything other than toy and personal projects, but I am 100% going to use it.
A previous version of wisp’s README suggested that you think of it as
I really enjoy writing a Lisp, and am excited to do it more. I’ve been fascinated by Lisps for a while now, and have been playing with them more and more. I’ve sunk a lot of time into Common Lisp over the last 2 years, but I am finding myself drawn more to ClojureScript and little things like Wisp.
Even when I’m not writing a Lisp, I think getting into Lisps has made me a better programmer (at least a better functional programmer). I love the granularity of functional programming. When I’m doing it, it feels more like preparing a meal than it does orchestrating a machine that I’m only able to look at sideways. Ingredients, prepared and combined in different ways, leading to different results.
Despite having gone to work as normal everyday this week, it felt sort of vacation-y, which has been really nice.
I did a lot of biking, wrote a bunch of lisp, and actually started and finished a personal project all this week.

It taught me the power of well-chosen words to shake people out of their daily routines and patterns of thought. It showed me that all jobs, no matter how seemingly dull, can be an outlet for self-expression and excellence. And it reminds me, to this day, that each work of art can be—deserves to be—considered from multiple points of view, not all of which will be comfortable.
