Title : Moving away from Emacs, 130 days after Author: Solène Date : 13 November 2018 Tags : emacs It has been more than four months since I wrote my article about leaving Emacs. This article will quickly speak about my journey. First, I successfully left Emacs. Long story short, I like Emacs and think it's a great piece of software, but I'm not comfortable being dependent of it for everything I do. I chose to replace all my Emacs usage by other software (agenda, notes taking , todo-list, IRC client, jabber client, editor etc..). - agenda is not replaced by when (port productivity/when), but I plan to replace it by calendar(1) as it's in base and that when doesn't do much. - todo-list: I now use taskwarrior + a kanban board (using kanboard) for team work - notes: I wrote a small software named “notes” which is a wrapper for editing files and following edition using git. It's available at git://bitreich.org/notes - IRC: weechat (not better or worse than emacs circe) - jabber: profanity - editor: vim, ed or emacs, that depend what I do. Emacs is excellent for writing Lisp or Scheme code, while I prefer to use vim for most of edition task. I now use ed for small editions. - mail: I wrote some kind of a wrapper on top of mblaze. I plan to share it someday. I'm happy to have moved out from Emacs.
