  • doomemacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

    Project mention: M-X Reloaded: The Second Golden Age of Emacs – (Think) | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-27

    Yes, you need to install Emacs. It is probably available from whatever package manager your system uses.

    I prefer Doom (https://github.com/doomemacs/doomemacs) to Spacemacs. However I haven't looked at Spacemacs for many years; perhaps it's now on par with Doom.

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • prelude

    > I forgot how absolutely horrible the new user experience is...

    The bbatsov/prelude project was started in 2011 to help address that problem. I started using it not long after that, and it's been a joy to use ever since.

    And by "started using" I mean I forked it on GitHub, stared personalizing, and then merging/rebasing from upstream ever since at my own leisure.



    From 2011 to present, not everyone in the Emacs community feels bbatsov's Emacs Prelude makes the best/correct decisions, but given how long Emacs has been around and how large the community has been over time, what can you really expect?

    It's certainly a lighter-weight starter kit compared to Doom Emacs and Spacemacs. (I'm not knocking those projects!). I've also looked at some of the newer starter kits mentioned in other comments here and previous HN threads; they seem okay to me, just reinventing a lot of the same "wheels" you'll find in Prelude but in a less refined form in many cases... such are the freedoms, joys, and trials of Free Software.

  • use-package

    A use-package declaration for simplifying your .emacs

    Project mention: Use-Package & different key bindings based on host computer | /r/emacs | 2023-06-29

    Another way would be to redefine parts of the bind-key macro or its use-package support functions

  • projectile

    Project Interaction Library for Emacs

    Project mention: Fuzzy Finding with Emacs Instead of Fzf | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-10

    Could you explain more about this setup? I'm not familiar with "projectile". Is this https://github.com/bbatsov/projectile the same thing you're referring to?

    Sounds interesting. What I've done recently is open my vim in the folder that contains all the organization's repos (the ones I've cloned) and just run ripgrep inside vim to find examples or references to whatever I've seeking. Seems performant enough even without doing anything except letting ripgrep ignore git-ignored stuff (default behavior of ripgrep).

  • company-mode

    Project mention: LSP could have been better | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-11

    Project mention: How to build a config | /r/emacs | 2023-08-25

    I am building an emacs config, I have got a list and plan of what I want, but I am not sure where I start building, are their any guides or docs on how to build a config from scratch, explainations of concepts like lazy loading, how the different package managers work and what they do, and all the built in emacs concepts and features I have gone though this tutorial, but it doesn't explain anything and doesn't show how to customise anything.
