Javathcript allows you to script your web pages in a simple lisp variant. Once you include Javathcript.js, any script tags in your document with type="text/lisp" will be evaluated. It will also download lisp files (only from the original server), if you have a script tag that has a src attribute. Finally, you can also evaluate lisp code from javascript usingJavathcript.eval(lispString). Read more>>
