Key differences between Scheme and Racket

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax with a focus on parentheses and prefix notation.Racket has a more expressive and extensible syntax compared to Scheme, with support for different language levels.
ParadigmScheme is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional programming and imperative programming.Racket is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional programming, imperative programming, and object-oriented programming.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Racket is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.
PerformanceScheme is known for its simplicity and elegance, but it may not be as performant as some other languages.Racket is designed for performance and provides optimizations that can improve execution speed.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to Racket.Racket has a rich ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, making it easier to find and use existing code.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community compared to Racket, but it still has active users and resources available.Racket has a larger and more active community, with extensive documentation and support available.
Learning curveScheme has a relatively steep learning curve due to its minimalist syntax and functional programming concepts.Racket has a more gentle learning curve compared to Scheme, thanks to its extensive documentation and beginner-friendly features.
