I've been working last several months on a GUI math training/understanding program for my 6 year old daughter who just started grade 1 (in Philippines - they start beginning of June).
Originally I started with addition and subtraction, but as every new topic (math related) was introduced in school (like basic idea of fractions, clock and many others) and as I saw problems in understanding, I would add a new exercise to the program. It contains 12 exercises in all now, and is pretty much complete (I run out of ideas) :-) .

My problem/question is following.
As I've seen with my daughter, the program is very successful in teaching (at least it is with my daughter), and she actually enjoys using it (which was not the case when I originally started with papers of printed problems). Therefore I would like to post this program on the internet for other parents to use, but I can't find where Racket compiled/standalone programs are posted.

I have of-course found Racket packages repository, but (I admit I know nothing of Racket packages) it does not seem to be what I need. As far as I see it, packages are for people who use racket, have racket installed on their computers, and know how to handle packages.
This is definitely not the folks I have in mind for my program.

So is there such a repository where I can post tarball containing compiled program, and source code.

There are two raco tools that might be of use to you: here’s a link to the documentation for both of them:


Also, I personally recommend using the discourse forum rather than this mailing list. Following the transition to discourse last year, the users mailing list is much less frequently used.

Thanks for the advice. I did not know about these tools, but apart from the fact that I really should know how to use them, I did just fine with DrRacket IDE where I just click on Racket->Crete Executable->Distribution (to install on other machines), and GRacket, and all is done for me.
My original question was not how to create stand alone executable, but where can I post my executable for others to use.
