XIT: X User Interface Toolkit

XIT (X User Interface Toolkit) is an object-oriented user interface development environment for the X Window System based on Common Lisp, CLOS, CLX, and CLUE. It has been developed by the Research Group DRUID at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Stuttgart ( as a framework for Common Lisp/CLOS applications with graphical user interfaces for the X Window System. XIT contains user interface toolkits, including general building blocks and mechanisms for building arbitrary user interface elements and a set of predefined common elements (widgets), as well as high-level interactive tools for constructing, inspecting, and modifying user interfaces by means of direct manipulation. Although the system kernel is quite stable, XIT is still under active development.
