Now this looks promising re: "how could Guile have its equivalent of DrRacket?" git.elephly.net/?p=software/gu

Guile Studio aims to build a simplified configuration of emacs aimed at the Guile + Emacs newcomer, kind of how like Spacemacs makes Emacs accessible for Vim users. I hope it works!

I skimmed the website, but what's the difference between Guile and Scheme?

@ross Lisp is a parenthetical family of langauges; Scheme is a family of Lisps; Guile is a Scheme.

I knew the first two, guess I never knew that there were many scheme implementations.

@ross From Wikipedia:
