In short, compared to Lisp development workflow, Python workflow is appaling, horrible, a torture. I can’t really express myself with words. Perhaps the image of a giraffe with whipped cream would be more eloquent.
This is a super high quality comparison. thanks so much. i program in python, clojure, and i’ve been doing some common lisp. python - hard to match my productivity in python right now – some of the libraries are super weird though. i had huge issues with in consistent behavior in some of the data libraries – basically some aspects of python encourage bad library design which you pay for in hours of your life. clojure - consistency/guarantees are nice though the rigid functional style feels somewhat alien/limited to my thinking, anywhere it touches java sucks, anytime lein breaks and you cant repl it really sucks, error messages are kind of awful in clj. common lisp - a lot of fun to program in, programming feels very natural, but i struggled to work with some tools and struggle to identify what libraries are still good/maintained. In general: I struggled to get emacs working on linux.
