Not to be confused with Climax.

Climacs[1] is an open source text editor written in Common Lisp that is similar to GNU Emacs and is released under the GNU LGPL (version 2 or later) software license.


Climacs uses the Common Lisp Interface Manager (CLIM) and ESA[2] for constructing its user interface. McCLIM is the CLIM implementation that is compatible with Climacs. The editor provides source coloring based on incremental syntax analysis.[3]
