I’m not much of a Lisper, so it would be interesting to hear what experienced people would say about the language. Am I stupid? Did I get something horribly wrong? The idea was to bring Lisp (Arc) paradigms but use native JavaScript data structures, where you don’t have symbols, nil, and so on. The resulting side effects is things like quoting stringifying atoms for macros, hash tables not being lists (there are no keyword elements in JS), and so on. I would actually love to hear I got something wrong; the language is still early enough to make breaking changes.

I haven't looked in depth yet, but in general I'm a big fan of superficially/locally ugly solutions :)
