    Sounds like what you want is emacs, but preconfigured. In that case, have you tried Doom Emacs, Spacemacs or any of the myriad of others like those?

    The performance lag of Spacemacs was addressed by Doom Emacs ( https://github.com/hlissner/doom-emacs ). Have you tried Doom Emacs by any chance. After syncing everything, the performance is stellar in my opinion.

    but I just realized, you're probably better off using doom emacs. The defaults are sane, customizations are almost always optional and the community's really active/helpful. (Disclaimer: I'm a doom emacs user with ~2k lines of config)

    While Doom is more opinionated, it's not too difficult make Emacs your own, most of the choices are optimized anyway. Currently the head of Spacemacs devs is not active on the project anymore. Also I don't think it's hard to upstream code to Doom, as long as the code is thoroughly written, take a similar example on both sides: the introduction of a completion engine as layer/module (same packages are installed): - https://github.com/syl20bnr/spacemacs/pull/14901: 23 comments, 7 participants - https://github.com/hlissner/doom-emacs/pull/4664: 576 comments, 20 participants

    You should definitely mention Doom Emacs - it will make Vimmers instantly feel at home.

  • Does anyone use Emacs to development big Golang project like Kubernetes?

    I've been using Emacs(Doom Emacs) for Golang development for a while and everything is good so far, but I really have troubles when I use it to explore Kubernetes source code today, everything is very very slow which makes the entire editor almost unusable: gopls seems not respond at all, guru eats all of the CPU but all features just not working, and I even got the following error messages for simple saving:
  • What do you do in your GNU/Linux computer other than opening terminal and editing config files?

    I use bottom instead of htop. I am using most of my time in terminal. I am using the window manager just to visually see my different terminals operate at the same time! I also use doom-emacs (emacs in 'evil mode', that is with vim keybindings. works very well supporting org-mode). I also use terminal version of vim, and i am actively searching for new terminal tools and cli programs with tldr pages.
