Racket: Lisp for the modern day

Racket is an exceptional example of a modern-day Lisp language that offers a wide range of features to meet the needs of developers in 2023. It has a built-in language server, package manager, support for gradual static typing, a code formatter, and the ability to create executables. Racket also has a user-friendly IDE called DrRacket that provides syntax highlighting, error messages, and easy execution of code. What sets Racket apart is its powerful macro capabilities, allowing users to create domain-specific languages or entirely new languages. Additionally, Racket’s language-building capabilities make it a valuable tool for academic papers and documentation.
