Hello all,

I have just started trying to get into using QuickLisp and ran into the problem of having the need for a network connection in order to use the command (quicklisp-quickstart:install).

The computer I am using is not able to connect to the internet. Is there a way that I can download the quicklisp libraries it manages to be hosted locally and have quicklisp point to that instead?

Thanks in advance!

If you have an online computer, you can use (ql-dist:ensure-installed (ql-dist:provided-releases t)) to install everything, then zip up the ~/quicklisp directory and send it to the offline computer. That will not try to fetch anything because it will all already be available.
