Key differences between Scheme and Crystal

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax with a heavy use of parentheses and prefix notation.Crystal has a syntax similar to Ruby with a focus on readability and expressiveness.
ParadigmScheme is a functional programming language that also supports imperative and object-oriented programming paradigms.Crystal is a statically-typed, object-oriented programming language with a syntax inspired by Ruby.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Crystal is statically typed, meaning that variable types are checked at compile-time.
PerformanceScheme is an interpreted language and generally has slower performance compared to compiled languages.Crystal is a compiled language and aims to have similar performance to C.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to more popular languages.Crystal has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, with some compatibility with Ruby gems.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community compared to more mainstream languages, but still has active support and resources available.Crystal has a smaller community compared to more established languages, but is growing and has active support.
Learning curveScheme has a steep learning curve due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.Crystal has a relatively low learning curve, especially for developers familiar with Ruby.
