Racket without bundled packages such as DrRacket
Racket is a general-purpose programming language in the Scheme family, with a large set of libraries and a compiler based on Chez Scheme. Racket is also a platform for language-oriented programming, from small domain-specific languages to complete language implementations.
The ``minimal Racket'' distribution includes just enough of Racket for you to use
raco pkg to install more. Bundled packages, such as the DrRacket IDE, are not included.
