If you already know programming concepts but are new to Racket, I recommend reading @hyperlink["" "Quick: An Introduction to Racket with Pictures"] and trying the instructions for yourself. This should fill you in on the basics of practically using the Racket language. After reading that, if you want to know the fundamentals even more in-depth, you can check out the @hyperlink["" "Racket Guide"], which is better to jump around in rather than read from start to end.
I @italic{highly recommend} using the official DrRacket IDE to write Racket code, particularly if you are a beginner. It applies useful indentation automatically and it has extremely good hover hints. Once you are familiar with Racket, you could configure Emacs, VSCode, Vim, or your favourite other editor to understand Racket's style rules, though you might still miss out on the really good hover hints.
@code{breezewiki.rkt} and @code{dist.rkt} are entrypoints. They do as little as possible, just requiring the page functions and starting the web server.
