Key differences between Scheme and Elm

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax with a heavy use of parentheses.Elm has a syntax similar to Haskell with a strong emphasis on functional programming.
ParadigmScheme is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional programming, procedural programming, and object-oriented programming.Elm is a purely functional language that enforces immutability and encourages the use of functional programming principles.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Elm is statically typed, meaning that variable types are checked at compile-time.
PerformanceScheme is an interpreted language, which can result in slower performance compared to compiled languages.Elm compiles to highly optimized JavaScript code, resulting in good performance.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to more popular languages.Elm has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, with a focus on functional programming and web development.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community compared to more mainstream languages, but there are still active communities and resources available.Elm has a supportive and active community, with regular updates and a dedicated core team.
Learning curveScheme has a steep learning curve due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.Elm has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with functional programming.
