IMPORTANT: I will be using SBCL implementation, so any notes that follow will be for same


Installing quicklist (a package manager)

$ curl -O
$ sbcl --load quicklisp.lisp
* (quicklisp-quickstart:install)
* (ql:system-apropos "vecto")
* (ql:quickload "vecto")
* (ql:add-to-init-file)
* (quit)

Making REPL usable (since no history or completion by default)

$ rlwrap -c sbcl --disable-debugger

If using neovim (as you should be), use Iron.nvim. It provides a nice repl integration for many languages, including lisp.
