Deploying lisp plugins
« on: February 17, 2014, 10:49:27 PM »
I've written an Inno Setup script that demonstrates how to generate a setup program that configures your lisp plugin to load at startup. It includes a very basic sample plugin called MyPlugin that demonstrates what I consider best practice for lisp plugin architecture. The sample does not use OpenDCL, but the architecture applies to OpenDCL based plugins as well. See my blog post here: Building a commercial grade lisp plugin installer in 5 easy steps.

Wonderful, wonderful resource! Many thanks Owen.   

Now if you could just come up with an end-user licensing tool for our projects.... ;)

Thanks for the kind words!

I guess you're referring to copy protection. I think way too much time and resources get wasted on such things, because 9 times out of 10 the cost far outweighs the benefit. Nevertheless, I'm more than happy to build custom LspLoad modules that interface with the copy protection system of your choice, but I can't do that pro bono. :)
