    Beyond that you might as well embrace the suck and install autex with a language server: https://emacs-lsp.github.io/lsp-mode/

    Smart completion these days is done primarily through LSP. eglot is fairly minimal but built-in as of 29, also available via GNU Elpa. lsp-mode is another option with more integrations and a bit more fleshed out.

  • Setting up a fundraiser for multi-threaded Emacs, any thoughts on this?
    7 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 4 Feb 2023
    Are you running emacs-29? It has numerous speed-ups compared to emacs-28 and older versions, many of them coded by Mattias EngdegÄrd, e.g. commit def6fa4246. I have a fresh build of emacs-29 running on Linux and a new mac with an M1 CPU, and it's stupid fast. I don't use the native-comp feature. I rarely notice any hesitation or slowness. I don't use Elpy. I do use lsp mode.

    I love emacs for the fact that I can use it with many different languages. I get my IDE like features (auto-complete, linting, formatting etc.) from lsp-mode. You can configure emacs by writing elisp in your .emac dotfile in your home directory. Here is my messy config file. The general tactic is to copy snippets from other people. I don't know a good starting point for configuring, but maybe this video can give you a glimpse of what it is like. Picking a feature and getting it working was what helped me when I first started out with emacs. evil-mode was the first thing I installed, because I like vim.

    Since you are doing code development, the first things to go for would be setting up your emacs packaging (installing use-package and melpa (use-package's documentation covers this) so you have more packages to choose from (do be careful to not just pick things willy nilly but research them a bit first)) and then setting up lsp-mode. lsp-mode lets you use LSP servers for the specific programming languages you work with in a somewhat unified fashion. You then need to install and setup the LSP servers for the languages you use, and possibly install language specific Emacs packages as support (note, Emacs has builtin functionality for many).
  • Emacs 29: Install Tree-Sitter parser modules with a minor mode

    And first of all, I'm trying to understand, how is it connected to https://github.com/emacs-lsp/lsp-mode? I'm sure, that existed lsp implementations already parse source code. Why TreeSitter?
  • Emacs as IDE
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 18 Dec 2022
    Debugging (kind of an IDE feature) is a little harder. Out of the box, Emacs can at least debug emacs-lisp (with built-in features) and C (via gdb integration). Beyond that, take a look at dap-mode for other language options. Similarly, take a look at lsp-mode or eglot for code completion, more advanced linting, etc.
