Working with Maxima in CoCalc

Main goal:

  • document various ways of using Maxima in CoCalc
  • add more ways


Stuff to do:

  • install latest version without waiting on upgrade in SageMath

  • have versions for various Common Lisp implementations?

    The "Lisp" page on the Maxima website says:

    Maxima can be compiled with SBCL, Clisp, CCL, GCL, CMUCL, ECL, Scieneer Common Lisp (SCL) and Allegro Common Lisp (ACL).

    In particular it would be nice to provide

  • document how to install and use Maxima-Jupyter in CoCalc

    • note: so far it cannot work with ECL-based Maxima, such as the one shipped with SageMath
  • work on improving Maxima support in CoCalc sagews worksheets

If you're interested in joining the effort, contact me so I can add you as a collaborator in this CoCalc project.

The idea would be to install:

The README has some hints.

A preliminary step is to install QuickLisp:
