Includes support for many of the usual Org
SRC block header arguments (with the notable exception of
session), as well as some extras for controlling the way that code blocks are evaluated. This sort of functionality is perhaps more important for Racket than for most other languages, since Racket is not just one language. Rather, Racket is an open-ended, user-extensible collection of languages (including, e.g., Racket, Scribble, Slideshow, Redex, and Magnolisp), which may not always be evaluated in the Racket VM in the usual way of just invoking the
ob-racket, first ensure that Org-Mode 8 is installed, and that a major mode (such as racket-mode) has been configured for editing
racket code blocks in Org.
If your mode for editing Racket code is not called
racket-mode, you’ll want to specify the mode to use with something like:
(add-to-list 'org-src-lang-modes (quote ("racket" . geiser)))
Firstly, you may want to byte compile the “ob-racket.el” file, for example by invoking the
byte-compile-file function under Emacs.
Then make sure the
ob-racket feature is on Emacs’
load-path so that it can be loaded on demand:
(add-to-list 'load-path "/my/path/to/emacs-ob-racket")
Furthermore, you should enable
racket code for evaluation (e.g., upon invoking
org-babel-execute-src-block, by default bound to
C-c C-c under Org), by having the
org-babel-load-languages variable include
racket. Something like this should do the trick:
(org-babel-do-load-languages 'org-babel-load-languages '((emacs-lisp . t) (racket . t) (scribble . t)))
There is no separate documentation for
ob-racket, so look at the source code, and the Emacs Lisp docstrings of the functions appearing there. You will probably also find the the relevant Org documentation useful.
