2.15 snooze

“Common Lisp RESTful web development”

Snooze is an URL router for Common Lisp designed around REST web services.

An URL router lets you open URL routes to your application that are friendlier, easier to remember and better supported by other applications, such as search engines.

All Snooze does is establish a tight fit between this type of route and plain old Common Lisp. For example, in Snooze, routes are just functions and HTTP conditions are just Lisp conditions.

Since you stay inside Lisp, if you know how to make a function, you know how to make a route. There are no regular expressions to write or extra route-defining syntax to learn.

Snooze is web-server-backend-agnostic: it can work with any web server.
