1 What is Goblins?

Goblins is a distributed object programming environment. Features:

Goblins’ design is inspired by the E programming language and by the observation that lambda is already the ultimate security mechanism (ie, normal argument-passing in programs, if taken seriously/purely, is already all the security system needed).

Spritely Networked Communities Institute was created to advance decentralized networking infrastructure, particularly as it pertains to social networks. Goblins is the heart of the system, on which other layers are built. At the time of writing, two key versions of Goblins are supported, the Racket version of Goblins, and the Guile version. This manual is for the Guile edition of Spritely Goblins.
