Weblocks

Weblocks is an advanced Web framework written in Common Lisp. It is designed to make Agile Web application development as effective and simple as possible. It uses powerful Common Lisp features like multiple dispatch, the metaobject protocol, lexical closures, keyword arguments, and macros to build abstractions that make Web development easy, intuitive, and free of boilerplate. In addition, control flow is easily expressed using continuations. Things that are hard or mundane in other frameworks become easy and fun in Weblocks
