A CEO's Guide to Emacs

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • slack-term

    Slack client for your terminal

    You can still find terminal interfaces for a lot of these things, including Slack: https://github.com/jpbruinsslot/slack-term. I don't use Emacs but I imagine you could integrate that somehow if you wanted to.

  • quickadd

    Parse natural language time and date expressions in python (by Acreom)

    with the steep learning curve of setting it up followed by the never ending UX complexities emacs seems like it's for people who get satisfaction of spending time setting things up rather than being effective. A modern alternative of this is Notion.

    On the contrary, for people who care about getting stuff done with a capture-first organize-later interface that works out of the box like an iPhone, options are limited.

    for the curious ones I'm building one myself https://acreom.com

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • gptel

    A simple LLM client for Emacs

    Emacs is able to run prompts, just like any other tool that's able to make an HTTP request. E.g., https://github.com/karthink/gptel provides hooks to both OpenAI and local LLMs, and allows you to use them anywhere—since everything in Emacs is a buffer.

    There are some pretty great examples in the README.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
