A workflow mixing VSCode + LaTeX + Inkscape.

Since some of the underlying tools like inkscape-figures-manager and inkscape-shortcut-manager are specific to Linux and macOS (even worse, while the former does support macOS, the latter only support Linux, hence I need to write new scripts with macOS specific tool to achieve the same functionality), so sadly, windows users are left behind...

https://www.spacemacs.org/ is a layer on top of emacs that solves a number of shortcomings including a more modern UI. If you use https://github.com/plexus/chemacs2, you can always run emacs and spacemacs independently, both for learning, troubleshooting etc.

Is it worth renouncing evil and becoming a good person?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 29 May 2022
I asked this same question a year and half ago and since that post I started reading Mastering Emacs by Mickey Petersen which was really helpful, I used Chemacs to keep my evil config around in case I give up. But I ended up dropping that config and I realized I wasn't really into modal editing. It took me one month to get used to my new config but that was worth it, everything in Emacs became consistent.

Perhaps the biggest game changer in my new init file is chemacs2. This allows one to choose one among many possible ".emacs.d" directories to use for the emacs that is being invoked.
How did you get started with vanilla emacs?
7 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 11 Apr 2022
I didn't see anyone mention it here but chemacs! I started on Doom as well and eventually felt the urge to try out vanilla. Chemacs helped with my transition. I continued using Doom as I was used to until I reached a point in my personal config that I was able to move over permanently.

As a random aside, chemacs2 might also be useful if you’re switching/trying/experimenting a lot, as it lets you have multiple separate configs and easily switch between them.
Replace (almost) all your programs with emacs!
6 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxmasterrace | 30 Mar 2022
If you start at chemacs2 with GNU Emacs you can install a a whole bunch of Emacs "distros" without fear of one conflicting with the other. There are a bunch of them you can try OTOH: Doom, Prelude, Nano, Centaur... and the Spacemacs you mentioned.
Functions and where to set environment variables for an Emacs session?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/emacs | 4 Nov 2021
I am trying out multiple sessions of Doom with Chemacs2, and I want each doom configuration to use its own bin/doom and that requires the PATH for the session to include that sessions bin/doom.
