    This is worth clicking through to just for the dancing banana.

      I guess that’s a compliment? :)

        Yes. :)

      I’m learning Racket, so it helps me a lot to see example code. But mostly, racket is a bit of an undiscovered gem, isn’t it? It’s very low key, I usually hear just about Haskell or OCaml or Erlang, but damn Racket has a lot of powerful modules included. I find the code ugly though, but only how I write it. This example code is very well formatted.

        I find Racket to be very well documented, and the community to be very helpful. It’s a shame that it’s not more widely used, but perhaps it’s in use by folks who just don’t talk about it. I’m hoping to talk more about it, but I’m not a professional racketeer, and have little time for hobby projects, so that’s unlikely to amount to much promotion – nor do I have any clout whatsoever to begin with.. :)

        As for formatting, there’s a style guide which might help you out.

          “And as you read on, keep in mind that we are not perfectionists. We produce reasonable software.” Thanks for the pointer to that part of the docs. I was specifically looking for: http://docs.racket-lang.org/style/Textual_Matters.html

          I too find racket very well documented, something which I love about Python as well.
