Thoughts on Spacemacs after using it for a while.

02.04.2018 02:00

I have been a Spacemacs user for a while now. And I do enjoy it. Like a lot. Most of what I enjoy is how awesome Emacs is. And how easy Spacemacs makes it to deal with it. For example the layer stuff is a little bit difficult to get started with, but it is awesome.

Let me be perfectly clear: I would not trade spacemacs for anything. I use it, and will probably continue to do so for a very long time.

But there are some things that I don’t like. It seems like Spacemacs is a little bit “heavy”, it takes a very long time to start compared to plain Emacs. And stuff can be a little bit unstable. I’m not saying it is their fault. I just hope that some of it will be fixed with the 0.300 release. And that to make stuff faster and more stable is a priority moving forward.

Using a Iroshizuku bottle as a inkwell.

I wrote about an idea I had not too long ago. The idea was to take empty Pilot Iroshizuku bottles, clean them and then use them as a inkwell or a ink bottle for other inks. Because not every bottle of ink is the same. Some of them are just a bottle, with a flat bottom. And that can make it a struggle to fill your pens, even though there are a lot of ink left. Especially with pens like the Vanishing Point.

I started doing this a few weeks ago and it works like a charm.

This got me to think about looking for something even better. But it works for now.

Keybase is interesting, but I have a hard understanding it.

Not all companies are created to be sustainable. Some can be built by small times, while others can’t. But it is important to remember that some want to build the company they’re going to work at for the rest of their life, while others want to get bought by Facebook.
