  • nano-emacs

    Project mention: Effect of Perceptual Load on Performance Within IDE in People with ADHD Symptoms | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-07-14

    It's not adhd specific but https://arxiv.org/abs/2008.06030

    After reading this I implemented a code theme based primarily around typographic variation like weight rather than color. It uses only two colors (black and deep purple) in two weights and one italic each. I have pretty severe adhd and it's hard to judge but after using it for a few months I think this is better for me. Previously I had been using solarized light for nearly a decade for probably similar reasons.

    Nano emacs was created by the author of that paper and its default themes are based on it, if you want to try it without committing to hand-rolling a theme. Personally I found that one too "light" (typographically, not color) but I also have relatively poor vision and like a large and heavy font.

  • symex.el

    An intuitive way to edit Lisp symbolic expressions ("symexes") structurally in Emacs

    Project mention: Sapling: A highly experimental vi-inspired editor where you edit code, not text | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-04

    I also recommend symex[1]. Although it is more “locked-in” to s-expressions than other solutions (which takes some getting used to at first), I find that for me this is exactly what makes movement feel much more intuitive and editing much more precise.

    The one thing I don’t like is that symex depends on so many other plugins (especially Evil, which I am trying to swap out with the more lightweight meow), but this will apparently change soon. They are also working towards support for non-Lisp languages via tree-sitter, but I don’t know how well it works.
