I realized that JavaScript has so many similarities with Lisp that it would be easy to write a JavaScript-based Lisp language that uses the browser's JavaScript parser rather than writing my own parser. It turned out to be even easier than I expected--it took me an evening to create the basic language. (It's not a complete Lisp implementation, of course.) It looks a little different from most Lisp dialects. (Uses brackets instead of parentheses and uses commas between list elements) because of its basis in JavaScript.
