re: Anyone still using Emacs? VIEW POST


I went to Holberton School and we are only allowed to code in Emacs or Vim exclusively


Was watching an Emacs Meetup talk on thoughtbot’s Youtube. Had a professor from Penn say that he told his student that he didn’t care if they picked Vim or Emacs... but they had to pick one or the other 😂


It's honestly a big benefit starting with one of those over say VS Code. When you can only work from the command line, the speed with which you are able to complete tasks doesn't even compare to using a GUI text editor. I do a lot of front end work now so VS code is a better fit for my workflow now, but I have a real appreciation for Emacs.
