Tiny Racket for build scripts

Zuo is a tiny Racket with primitives for dealing with files and running processes. It comes with a make-like embedded DSL, which is used to build Racket itself.

Zuo is a Racket variant in the sense that program files start with #lang, and the module path after #lang determines the parsing and expansion of the file content. That's how the make-like DSL is defined, and even the base Zuo language is defined by layers of #langs. One of the early layers implements macros.


Install the latest version of zuo as follows:

guix install zuo

Or install a particular version:

guix install zuo@1.6-racket8.8

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
