  • cmder

    Lovely console emulator package for Windows

    Do I "need" a terminal emulator, like Windows Terminal, or Cmder?

  • vlime

    A Common Lisp dev environment for Vim (and Neovim)

    I think I'll dig at vimtutor within a few days, then. I've seen it mentioned a few times already, so now's a good time I reckon. Like you said, I'll be avoiding plugins, but with the guide I referenced, vlime is mentioned. You don't think that'll be too problematic on Windows, do you? I recall seeing that plenty of plugins don't work outside of linux. Thanks again, btw!
