Lisp for production and development

by zachscs   Last Updated August 19, 2018 05:05 AM

I'm looking to start a large project using lisp. I enjoy the language and YOLO. I have three requirements:

  1. Fast compilation.
  2. Decent performance.
  3. Concurrency (multi-core and green threads).

I found clozue common lisp seems to have many of these requirements, It states

Some distinguishing features of the implementation include fast compilation speed, native threads, a precise, generational, compacting garbage collector, and a convenient foreign-function interface.

However I would prefer a lisp-1 language. Do any of the schemes meet these requirements? Chez Scheme seems promising. Can anyone comment on its performance, compilation speed and concurrency support?
