Hi Hendrik,

Here is a blog post from 2012 about Racket on Android:

This proves that it is possible to get it running on Android.
It mentions that Racket is slow to load, due to the large
runtime. The version used was 5.2 and in the mean time
version 6 of Racket has made minimal distributions possible.
Hopefully that has improved the loading time.

I vaguely remember talk about bundling modules in zip-files
in order to reduce io, but I can't remember if it was implemented.

It would be interesting to hear how things are now.

Also of interest, a thread on cross-compiling Racket:
