This link will be useful to you:


Two relevant paragraphs:

"To use a package from PLaneT in your program, the easiest thing to do is
copy the requirecode snippet off of that package’s page and paste it ino
your program. For instance, to use Schematics’ spgsql.plt package (a
library for interacting with the PostgresQL database), as of this writing
you would copy and paste the line:

(require (planet "spgsql.rkt" ("schematics" "spgsql.plt" 2 3)))

into your program. This line requires the file "spgsql.rkt" in package
version 2.3 of the"spgsql.plt" package written by "schematics". That does
two things: first, it downloads and installs a version of "spgsql.plt" that
is compatible with package version 2.3 from the central PLaneT repository
if a compatible version hasn’t already been installed. Second, it requires
the module in file "spgsql.rkt" from that package, making all of its
exported bindings available for use.

"Unlike with most package-distribution systems, package downloading and
installation in PLaneT is transparent: there’s no need for you to do
anything special the first time you want to use a package, and there’s no
need for you to even know whether or not a particular package is installed
on your computer or the computers where your code will be deployed."
