Emacs Getting started

12.10.2018 10:00

There are many ways to start, and I’m not sure what is the best place to do so. For many people I think the best way in is through a good plug and play config system like prelude or spacemacs. Then I recommend starting with evil, if you are a vim user, but giving the default keybindings a shot at some point. I also recommend to try moving over to your own config at some point, because it gives you a lot of options that for example spacemacs can’t give you.

It is also a lot easier to figure out what is wrong if you’re using plain emacs. Not to mention the speed.

For resources for learning emacs I think the GNU resources Emacs and Elisp manuals plus their tutorials and getting started guides are great. I also think the book “Mastering Emacs” is awesome.

If you have some time and patience, I do think using the config sample I shared and making your own thing is the best way to learn the most in the shortest amount of time. I never learnt more about emacs than when I started with my own config

Nock.co Talluah

I got this Nock.co case as a part of the 2018 PenAddict Kickstarter. This is not something I would have ordered myself, because it is very much outside of what I usually use. But I like it a lot.

The basic concept is a small case with room for two pens and something “business card” sized. This could mean proper business cards or index cards in that size. Something Nock.co sells. So I ordered some of them and started to use this thing.

The Talluah is a must if you are a index card person. And if you like me, are not, I think it can be a interesting addition to for example a pocket sized notebook. There are things where I think Index Cards work better, like capturing stuff or as a blunt instrument when there are a few things you really need to get done. But I prefer using a notebook for lists and stuff like that.

Index Cards and a Talluah have been a good addition to the stuff I carry, and I will continue to use it.
