What text editors do my fedifellas use? I like vscode purely for the linters and autocomplete that are easy to setup. I like emacs a lot because its fast and fairly minimal, is there a way to setup the linters/autocomplete on emacs to get it similar to vscode? is there a better alternative than the two? (ideally something that doesn't use electron)

>>KCDX9CO4 (OP) no emacs is the final red pill. you can get intellisense for most programming langues. the ones it doesn't have i just use the dedicated IDE with emacs keybindings. if you are new and looking for a keybinding system to learn use vanilla emacs bindings. most of it is transferable to other gnureadline programs. vim keybindings will be a curse to learn and rely on.

>>QD7FXXDC im fine with learning emacs keybindings, i've already learned a few since i use it, i just want to know how to setup intellisense

>>6YYF8EIA its language specific. there isnt a one package solution. what programming language are you using most?

>>KCDX9CO4 (OP) >What text editors do my fedifellas use? I just use vim, fairly boring answer. I like the keybinds and am very used to them, plus it is extensible. I am sure I do not need to explain why vim is cool. Wrote my entire dissertation in vim with latex. Here's something confusing, why is there a supposed "vim vs emacs" war, when they are not really comparable? vim is a text editor where as emacs is more like an ide with a text editor as just a part of it. Never used emacs though so maybe I'm just being dumb

>>WT4D3RWH i dunno it's just a cuckchan /g/ elitist thing, they really aren't similar at all. (unless you're talking about workflow in comparison to the keybinds, etc)

>>WT4D3RWH >why is there a supposed "vim vs emacs" war Back in the day, they were the two major editors available to the Unix community, and they seemed diametrically opposed in their philosophy. The banter got heated at times, but it was mostly good fun. I don't think the war was ever that serious. These days, vim and emacs are the old grandpas of the editor world, and there's less reason for them to fight when the kids are going over to vscode.

>>fg-A9R05RXG → it's sad really, an emacs fork with the extension support of vscode would be way more popular

Vim if I need fast editing like editing config files. Vscodium with vspacecode (spacemacs-like keybinding for vscode/codium) for doing real work (webshit). I used doom emacs before and I like it, but vspacecode just way easier and faster to customize.

>>D9GAMMXM I use elpy for Python, it makes REPL experience pretty great. For C maybe try https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/LanguageServerProtocol . I've used LSP before but it was very slow because JSON parsing was still done in elisp on my old version of Emacs so I don't use intelisense stuff anymore and don't really miss it all that much.

I use ed. After all, ed is the standard text editor.

Vim is really nice, after you learn some keys it is very rewarding.

I use Spacemacs and LunarVim.

BusyBox vi is good enough for me 99% of the time.

Anonymous 12/22/21(Wed)03:17:21 No. URD5CKXN [Report]

I've used busybox vi for a while but since switching to openbsd I've just been using default vim because BSD vi has no backspace

Anonymous 12/22/21(Wed)09:07:09 No. 6NGARK5N [Report]

You can probably add BackSpace yourself via the .exrc, by mapping the key to a sequence like ESC x i
