Programmable programming language in the Scheme family
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 main Racket distribution comes with many bundled packages, including the DrRacket IDE, libraries for GUI and web programming, and implementations of languages such as Typed Racket, R5RS and R6RS Scheme, Algol 60, and Datalog.
