New to emacs; will you hold my hand?

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

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • crafted-emacs

    A sensible base Emacs configuration.

    Just to be sure, Crafted Emacs is this Even now that I have 5 days worth of friction (which I understand is nothing) with the subject I have to say that it is very intimidating to me because of the language used (I have just too many unknowns/uncertainties in every sentence I read) but also because of the mention of several other packages or concepts (e.g. the entire Principles section). This is not to say that something is wrong with Crafted Emacs, just that I am not ready for it. It seems to me that it is meant to be an alternative to spacemacs/doom etc by providing a different/modular way to customization. I will come around to it a bit later.

  • dotfiles

    The path to GNUrvana (by daviwil)

    I was watching some videos and saw this, which is HUUUGE. Is there some other resource that I can just start with one piece/package at a time and keep adding more slowly?

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • github-orgmode-tests

    This is a test project where you can explore how github interprets Org-mode files

    any pointers on getting started with org-mode? I am going through rn and got somewhat familiar with the syntax. I am trying to evaluate it and I don't see the value yet. do i need any plugins for it?

  • emacs-which-key

    Emacs package that displays available keybindings in popup

    IMHO, there is one must-have package for every beginner (and not so beginner), which-key.

  • doomemacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

  • emacs-buddy

    Emacs Buddy initiative to help new Emacs users with their struggles

    Good luck with your trying Emacs out! In case you want to chat one-to-one with a more expert user(s), you may find this initiative interesting:
