Please reference Racket's Getting Started page for instructions on downloading and installing Racket.

Alternative installation options and further notes for specific OSes follow.

macOS

Install via Homebrew:

1
2
brew update
brew install minimal-racket

The minimal-racket package will probably work for solving the problems, but it does not include the graphical interface IDE, DrRacket. If you want that, you have to install the full racket distribution from cask:

1
2
brew tap caskroom/cask
brew install racket

macOS official installer

Note that on macOS, the official installer puts the files under /Applications, and as a result the racket and raco executables are not accessible on command-line terminals. You have to add the bin subdirectory below the Racket installation location (e.g., /Applications/Racket v6.8/bin for version 6.8) to the $PATH.

Linux

Debian:

1
sudo apt-get install racket

Arch:

1
pacman -S racket
