Using emacs as a study environment

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/emacs

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • poet

    An emacs theme that's well suited for modes using variable pitch: particularly org-mode and markdown-mode.

    I use olivetti for writing org documents (and writing any prose, really). I normally use a dark theme but I highly recommend poet for working with prose.

  • ox-ipynb

    org-mode exporter to Jupyter notebooks

    For exporting from org to ipnb:

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • jupyter

    An interface to communicate with Jupyter kernels. (by emacs-jupyter)

    For writing source blocks:

  • deft

    Deft for Emacs

    If, like me, OP is a little slap-dash, happy-go-lucky, can't-decide-what-to-use, lazy, or uncoordinated, is a pretty handy package.

  • anki-editor

    Emacs minor mode for making Anki cards with Org

    If you are interested in the spaced-repetition learning approach, you can try org-drill and you will use Emacs for notes production and repetition; if, like me, you prefer integrating your workflow with Anki, there's anki-editor, "a minor mode for making Anki cards with Org": the repo here. This way, you will create notes in Emacs but the repetition will be done in Anki (which means you can use Ankidroid on your phone for studying what you wrote in Emacs)

  • org-fc

    Spaced Repetition System for Emacs org-mode
