A Scheme-Based Extension Language Framework for Mac OS


“Swift LispKit”
“objecthub,” GitHub, May 5, 2018

LispKit is a framework for building Lisp-based extension and scripting languages for macOS applications. LispKit is fully written in the programming language Swift. LispKit implements a core language based on the R7RS (small) Scheme standard. It is extensible, allowing the inclusion of new native libraries written in Swift, of new libraries written in Scheme, as well as custom modifications of the core environment consisting of a compiler, a virtual machine as well as the core libraries.

It's free software, under the Apache 2.0 license.

This seems to be a kind of Mac OS analogue of GNU Guile.
