Top 11 Emacs Lisp Evil Projects

  • doomemacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

    Project mention: Working remotely using SSH | reddit.com/r/vim | 2022-11-16

    May be heresy to say in here, but running Doom Emacs locally would probably be more pleasant than any of the other options. You can use TRAMP to edit remote files without laggy input or having to build your dev env remotely.

  • evil

    The extensible vi layer for Emacs.

    Project mention: [Spacemacs] Is bidirectional easy motion possible in spacemacs? | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-11-20

    One possible issue: it looks like Spacemacs uses evil-mode, which is what allows it to recognize SPC as a prefix key. I don't use evil-mode, so when I run the above snippet I get an error (*** Eval error *** Key sequence SPC j j starts with non-prefix key SPC).

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • evil-collection

    A set of keybindings for evil-mode

    Project mention: Does it worth to use Emacs keybindings instead of doom's predefined? | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-09-27

    The problem I have with evil in Emacs is that it is another layer on top of vinalla Emacs. Not many packages are designed with evil key bindings in mind. You need packages like https://github.com/emacs-evil/evil-collection and and https://github.com/emacs-evil/evil-magit and https://github.com/emacs-evil/evil-ediff to make Emacs feel more "evil". Distros like Doom and Spacemacs integrate these packages for you, but then you're even farther away from the default Emacs experience. I also find online help worse for evil bindings. To figure stuff out you often have to resort to looking at vim or neovim documentation. "Vanilla" Emacs is famously "self documenting" but last I checked evil couldn't provide useful help, within Emacs, in the same way.

  • evil-org-mode

    Supplemental evil-mode keybindings to emacs org-mode

    Project mention: 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. | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-08-11

    I see that evil-collection says it provides minimal org support. It apparently integrates with org-evil and evil-org, but it's not clear to me if there's substantial differences between them.

  • evil-multiedit

    Multiple cursors for evil-mode, based on iedit

    Project mention: Doom Emacs User: Multiedit Keybinds not Working | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-08-23

    Here is the documentation I'm following: https://github.com/hlissner/evil-multiedit

  • evil-snipe

    2-char searching ala vim-sneak & vim-seek, for evil-mode

    Project mention: Best packages to use with evil mode . | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-05-13

    evil-snipe: fast 2-char search, optionally overrides f/F and t/T to work on multiple lines

  • org-evil

    Evil extensions for Org-mode.

    Project mention: org-mode: Suppress indentation of list items and code blocks | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-09-19

    ; Enable org-evil ; https://github.com/GuiltyDolphin/org-evil (require 'org-evil)

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • emacs.d

    The emacs configuration of a vim convert. (by glynnforrest)

    Project mention: For those who use org-mode for note taking (work, school, whatever), one file per note or one file per "notebook" | reddit.com/r/orgmode | 2022-03-09

    Org capture dumps to the current month. I can look back at notes from meetings per the month and copy over tasks once per month. My setup is based on glyn Forrest’s setup. https://github.com/glynnforrest/emacs.d

  • spaceleader

    emacs leader-key implementation from spacemacs

    Project mention: Swap Ctrl and alt just in Emacs on windows | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2022-02-23

    You could try some different approach, like a leader key implementation or general. Maybe there is even a windows tool, which can remap keys before Emacs receives them (some Window Managers can do that on Linux/X11, so maybe this also possible with Windows).

  • evil-markdown

    Integrates emacs evil and markdown

  • .emacs.d

    A Simple, Fully Featured, and EVIL (Extensible VI Layer) Emacs Config (by naturallydisasterous)
