About These Pages

These pages were generated with a little "do it yourself" content management system in Common Lisp. The pages are hosted on a Raspberry Pi 3. The CMS features a proprietary non-XML markup language. Documents are instances of (CLOS) document classes for which (CLOS) presentation methods can be specified (for example, blog entries are presented differently from galleries).
