One thing I appreciate about racket-mode in emacs is the more
detailed syntax highlighting. I've attached two screenshots of the
same code in emacs and DrRacket. I think what's happening here is
that racket-mode highlights `for-clause` names and function
applications (sometimes?) while DrRacket does not. I might be
misunderstanding what I'm looking at.
Looking at the two screens, I didn't realize how much DrRacket was
highlighting until I tried to describe the differences. Now I've
adjusted DrRacket to match my emacs colors and find the code a bit
easier to navigate. The default dark colors in DrRacket seem to prefer
bolding over color change, which is less distinct to me.
I've got to say, though, that unlike most other IDEs (for any
language), DrRacket actually does the things it claims to do and isn't
a broken mess.
