This screen cast is designed to show how easy it is to get started with Lispy. The configuration is Ubuntu 7.10 and SBCL 1.0.12 (an official SBCL build). The procedure demonstrated consists of the following steps:

  1. Download and unpack Lispy.
  2. Start SLIME and load Lispy's ASDF configuration.
  3. Show the (optional) ~/.lispy.lisp configuration file for specifying maps (the Official is used if this file is missing).
  4. Install Edi's CL-WHO library through Lispy.
  5. Set up Lispy permanently in ~/.sbclrc
  6. Restart Lisp and load CL-WHO
  7. Reload Lispy and install CXML, which has a dependency on CLOSURE-COMMON.
  8. Demonstrate that CXML works.
