Racket is a popular variant of the Scheme programming language. Its features and benefits include:
  • Grow your Program:
    Racket's interactive mode encourages experimentation, and quick scripts easily compose into larger systems. Small scripts and large systems both benefit from native-code JIT compilation. When a system gets too big to keep in your head, you can add static types.
  • Grow your Language:
    Extend Racket whenever you need to. Mold it to better suit your tasks without sacrificing interoperability with existing libraries and without having to
What's New
Version 6.0:
  • A package is treated as a single collection by default, so it iseven easier to use a GitHub repository as a package. Get started quickly: http://docs.racket-lang.org/pkg/getting-started.html
  • DrRacket includes a new package manager GUI, available via the File|Package Manager ... menu item. The GUI is also available as a stand-alone program via the "gui-pkg-manager" package.
  • The main Racket distribution has been separated into about 200 packages. The Racket installer combines the core system with bundled versions of these packages. Alternatively, you may now install a Minimal Racket distribution - which is about 1/10 the size of the main distribution - and add only those packages that you need.
  • Package installation supports pre-built packages that include compiled byte code and rendered documentation, meaning packages can be installed quickly when built versions are available. All packages in the main distribution are available in pre-built form.

  • Grow your Language:
    Extend Racket whenever you need to. Mold it to better suit your tasks without sacrificing interoperability with existing libraries and without having to modify the tool chain. When less is more, you can remove parts of a language or start over and build a new one.
  • Grow your Skills:
    Whether you're just starting out, want to know more about programming language applications or models, looking to expand your horizons, or ready to dive into research, Racket can help you become a better programmer and system builder.
