About to declare Emacs bankruptcy. Any advice for cool or new packages, defaults, or ideas I should use before I start building my init.el? Also interested in guides to using evil.

How to get doom emacs keybindings?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 14 Jun 2022
Hey there. I migrated from Doom to vanilla Emacs earlier this year and went through the process of backporting a bunch of Doom's features into vanilla. As others have said, general.el is the package you want to do this. Doom doesn't really replace the control key with space. Rather, it defines keybindings that allow you to chord the default keybindings with the space prefix. While I haven't ported every hotkey over (and have changed some of the keybindings), the code in my config replicates Doom's behavior (prefix with the space leader key). You should also use which-key, which will show the available hotkeys after pressing a prefix. Doom has this enabled by default and there is no configuration required to get it working with the general prefix keys.
Very basic commands seem zany to me.. does it make sense later?

Install which-key, it will help you a lot.
Which which-key should I install?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 20 Feb 2022
The Melpa versioning scheme is a bit unfortunate, since it does not use the same semantic versioning scheme as rest of the community but uses dates when package is submitted. But it is built on 2022, 2nd Feb, which is the day of the latest update when which-key was bumped to version 3.6.0. You can check the GitHub repo.2 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 20 Feb 2022
The version on melpa is whatever's currently on the Github repo. The version on GNU only updates when the author actually publishes a release. So depends on whether you want to live on the bleeding edge or not.

Your first taste of emacs

A great package for learning emacs is which-key. This package makes a minibuffer popup with a key map based on the last key you just pressed (i.e if there are any). Add (use-package which-key :config (which-key-mode t)) to your config and try pressing C-x to see what options you have from there.

Help windows normally close on pressing the q key, but my helpful windows open in evil-mode and that appears to change the behaviour of the q key.

Is there a package like helpful for Common Lisp editing in emacs?

I really enjoy https://github.com/Wilfred/helpful when editing emacs lisp code, and I am wondering if there is an equivalent for Common Lisp editing.

Another (IMO) indispensable package that Doom uses is helpful. It's what provides those amazing help buffers that show you the source code for everything and link to a search for all references, etc.

How to paste/yank into minibuffer input prompt?

C-h v is a pretty useful command though. Another useful command is C-h k (describe-key), which will prompt you to enter in a key and will spit out what function it's bound to. I use the helpful package for enhanced help commands, and I think it's worth looking into too. That's just an aside though. It's worth mentioning because variables and functions are very well documented and you can often find solutions to any problem you face through help commands.
