In Windows, the install instructions in the readme should work. You may or may not have to set environment variables, I don't remember if I had to do that, but I don't remember having any issues. You'll probably want Git and MinGW as well.

If by "browse and install packages" you mean for Arc, you can't, yet.

I use Sublime Text with the syntax set to Lisp (which works well enough) and the terminal plugin, so I can open a Powershell prompt with Ctrl-Alt-T.

Thanks for the advice! I figured I was just missing something, but if it doesn't exist yet then that's reasonable enough.

I've heard of foreign function interfaces, does Arc have one of those?

Regardless, I'm sort of getting the impression that Arc is something I should come back to someday when I'm able to contribute tooling to it -- it's an amazing core but not much else.

If Racket interop counts, then yes, albeit not seamlessly.

Yeah, it's mostly News and some random experiments. Fun to mess around with, though.
