iamavalos237821dEmacs extra: No error here, they said.
@iamavalos vim and emacs are both great editors. Congrats on making the switch! I wouldn’t call emacs old school. It stood the test of time because it’s just well thought out, elegant, feature rich in ways that modern ides will never be, fast, and powerful. I’m a vim guy, much for the same reasons listed above but they are both stellar editors.
AleCx041631321dMan the only old school thing about Emacs or Vim is their age. Both editors are light years ahead of what we currently have as text editors.
Except for notepad. Nothing will ever be better than notepad.
All jokes aside, don't be scared of digging into emacs lisp to extend the editor's capabilities :) its what started me into Lisp languages, you are gonna love it!
