re: Anyone still using Emacs? VIEW POST


I began programming last year, and jumped into Spacemacs for 2 reasons:

  • My low-resource laptop for web development has only 4Gb RAM (can't afford an upgrade right now)
  • Configuring in elisp sets me in a programming mindset

Just hook up every mode possible to the appropriate lsp server, and you've "VSCode-ized" Emacs.

I'm currently using it for Javascript / NodeJS / React, C / C++, Go, Python.
Low footprint in old machines that one can repurpose for development work, for a few bucks. (got a T410s ThinkPad for $140)
