I have been looking for a Lispy replacement to #Python for a year now. #Racket is batteries-included like Python. You can also create executable binaries.
I'm not looking for efficiency here, since it's just for scripts I run on my desktop.
Though I prefer to use Emacs over DrRacket, I can see how it can bring down the barrier to entry significantly.
@tushartyagi Well, to be honest, this is my third attempt at learning Racket/Guile/Scheme. This time I spent enough time on it to be able to write simple scripts.
It feels a bit more verbose than Clojure, but I couldn't find a good scripting alternative in Clojure (other than the incomplete Joker lang).
I want to try GUI programming in Racket next week.
