Biglook: a Widget Library for the Scheme Programming Language
|Université de Nice -- Sophia Antipolis

Biglook is an Object Oriented Scheme library for constructing Guis.
It uses classes of a Clos-like object layer to represent widgets and
Scheme closures to handle events. Combining functional and
object-oriented programming styles yields an original application
programming interface that advocates a strict separation between the
implementation of the graphical interfaces and the user-associated
commands, enabling compact source code.
The Biglook implementation separates the Scheme programming interface and
the native back-end. This permits different ports for Biglook. The
current version uses GTK+ and Swing graphical toolkits, while the
previous release used Tk. It is available at:
