Key differences between Scheme and Ruby

SyntaxScheme has a simple and minimalist syntax with a heavy use of parentheses and prefix notation.Ruby has a more expressive and flexible syntax with a mix of keywords and symbols.
ParadigmScheme is a functional programming language that also supports imperative and object-oriented programming paradigms.Ruby is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language with support for functional programming.
TypingScheme is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Ruby is dynamically typed, allowing for flexible and dynamic variable typing.
PerformanceScheme is known for its simplicity and efficiency, making it a fast and performant language.Ruby is generally slower than some other languages due to its dynamic nature and higher-level abstractions.
Libraries and frameworksScheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to Ruby.Ruby has a large and mature ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, making it easy to find existing solutions for various tasks.
Community and supportScheme has a smaller community compared to Ruby, but it still has active support and resources available.Ruby has a large and active community with extensive support and resources available.
Learning curveScheme has a steeper learning curve due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.Ruby has a relatively gentle learning curve, making it easier for beginners to get started.
