I imagine emacs by itself is quite shit compared to vim. I've never used emacs without spacemacs, and spacemacs keeps the vim keybinds for actual text editing anwyay so I didn't have to learn that much.

I like vim because I find it easy to configure. Same reason why I prefer i3 over any other wm. WIth emacs you need to use  Lisp and for some reason it doesn't feel as simple as vim. It all comes down to preferences.

I use i3-wm too, and I also use it because it's easy to configure. I tried xmonad but fuck that. I also don't want to sound like i'm begging you to use spacemacs. That said, you do not need to learn lisp to configure spacemacs. Spacemacs has a nice config file with all the common options enumerated and commented in the file. Then it's just a matter of editing the file a bit to suit your needs, not creating a new one from scratch out of lisp functions. Spacemacs is very different from vanilla emacs in that regard.

Of course you can't do super fancy custom things that nobody has thought of without learning lisp, but I never needed to write a vimscript function in the year I used vim, and I haven't either when using spacemacs. I've just tweaked the occational configuration option, and the plugins seem to be very configurable.

Many people try to make me want to switch to emacs by bragging that there's a tetris plug in for it, but it kind of turns me away from that...

General editor/Web development: Easily, Atom. Hackable, portable, pluggable, customizable.
Heavyweight development?: Vim. Most (if not all) of my C/C++, Perl, Python, etc is done in Vim.

Heavyweight development in Windows?: Visual Studio 2015 (with a slew of plugins from JetBrains and others) because Microsoft is a faggot and using CLI compilers in Windows is cancerous.

I usually only use open source software, but some idiot decided to base Atom off fucking chromium- It's ridiculously fucking slow. I use sublime even though it's closed source because I enjoy modularity and customization.

That's only for my desktop though, for on the go coding I just use neovim.

I use floobits with both editors for close 2-person projects, and git of course. Don't care which host, usually GitHub because they give me free shit for being a student.

I'm not a web dev so I don't use anything for that :L

Yep. Atom is based off Google's "chromium". It's rendered in HTML and CSS and coded in JavaScript. Just try opening a thousand line file in it :L

It's so upsetting too because I love open source, and an open source sublime sounds so rad. But no, for some reason having a desktop application be rendered as a webpage was a good idea to whoever started the project.

It's really not that bad on most computers. Yes, it's inefficient and yes it uses a lot of memory, I don't like it either. But it's not unusable in that it can't open a 1000 line file. If it couldn't, it wouldn't be so popular.

It can, it'll just take quite a bit longer to load.

Oh, and just the startup time itself.. mm. It's popular because it's open source sublime and marketing from GitHub, not because it's good. It's ridiculously slow.

The Real Reason Unix Hackers Get R.S.I.

From: Patrick Sobalvarro <pgs@pa.dec.com>
Subject: RSI epidemic
Date: Sunday, August 13, 1995 1:26PM

Friday I was talking to my friend Johnson from the CDC, who told me that the CDC had been doing an epidemiological study of clustered RSI cases among computer scientists. He said that they've been waiting to act until their internal review process is completed, but it seems that there is indeed an infectious agent causing RSI. But it's not a biological agent. It's software.

"In particular," Johnson told me, "the significant vector among academics is Emacs."

"Emacs?" I gasped.

"Oh yes," he continued; "Didn't you ever notice that two of the first people in the computer science community around MIT who suffered from RSI were Richard Stallman and Bernie Greenberg? What were those people implementing fifteen or twenty years ago? That's what tipped us off."

We were having lunch at the cafeteria at Moffett Field. Johnson watched my hands throughout the meal. "Hey buddy. You're still doing okay anyway, aren't you? It's good to see that. Really good." He smiled, then looked at his watch and asked, "Walk me to the terminal, will you?"

I accompanied him to the little facility where crew-cut young men in uniform and their dependents, trailer-park girls with squawling babies, sat around waiting for MAC flights to other military facilities. A black helicopter, curiously silent, was waiting on the tarmac outside, its rotors turning lazily in the sunlight. "Ah, that'd be my flight," said Johnson. "Old Uncle Sam always sends you first-class, ha ha."

We shook hands. A little anxiously, I asked, "But what will you do about it? About the epidemic?"

Johnson paused before answering. He looked outside at the black helicopter. The pilot had seen him now; in his helmet and visor he appeared strangely insectile as he regarded Johnson patiently. I noticed the booms extending from the sides of the helicopter, where standardized weapons pods could be attached. "Patrick, old buddy," said Johnson playfully, "Back in high school people said you were smart, but I never thought you had an ounce of sense in your head. Listen: our charter is to protect the people of the United States of America by containing epidemics and eliminating disease. We have many... tools... at our disposal. Why don't you take a break for a while? Go someplace where people don't use Emacs. Where they never heard of Emacs. Don't take it with you. Go to Hawaii -- better yet - -- go to Redmond. Okay?" He punched my shoulder, smiling. I winced.

Then he strode out onto the tarmac, giving a thumbs-up to the pilot, who spun up the turbines. There was almost no noise. I didn't wait to watch them take off.

thank you for reading <3

Emacs. Recently started using evil-mode and now I

stop.

I used to have reservations about modal editing, but not anymore.

VS Code is pretty lit. Not what I use personally but I'd recommend it. Has a lot of features.

I just use VIM for everything.
