The tubes were down this morning, so I managed to get up to tutorial 6 in my Qt/Lisp API. It covers about 95% of the API by design so most of the non-extension tutorials/examples should work.
I would like to hear your complaints, suggestions, feedback if you have any.
Note that this API is a first draft and I thought it better to have something out there than wait until everything is perfect.
To start with, my current complaints:
- (in-package :qt) -> Nothing is actually exported from the package yet :-)
(make-instance 'qstring ...) -> A really verbose way to pass a string! Should convert lisp strings to qstrings automagically.
- Naming: instead of qpush-button, q:push-button
- No way to extend Qt from within Lisp yet (tutorial 7 won't work)
No way to attach arbitrary functions as slots
- Not Lispy enough.
I expect to address most of these at some point though the "Not Lispy enough" complaint is a bit subjective.
