    Am I the only person who uses Lem? An Emacs-clone written and extended in Common Lisp rather than the weird version of Lisp Emacs uses.


  • Is it worth learning Common Lisp for writing tools and solving practical problems if I already know Emacs Lisp?
    reddit.com/r/lisp | 2021-02-17
    If you want to go the pure CL route, there is https://github.com/lem-project/lem - but, emacs does have tons of plugins; may be, someone writes a compatibility layer for elisp over common-lisp?
  • Are there other editors like emacs? (extreme scriptability)
    reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-01-18
    I'd say yes: https://github.com/cxxxr/lem/ It's written in Lisp, of course.
