There was another meeting of EmacsATX, the Austin Emacs Meetup group last week.
The presentation was on Rational Emacs (now called Crafted Emacs). It is a configuration meant for experienced Emacs users.
The presenter went through the github repo. The principals of the project are as follows:
- Minimal, modular configuration
- Works well in the terminal
- Can be integrated with a Guix configuration
- Works well with Chemacs2
- Helps you learn Emacs Lisp
This is geared towards experienced Emacs users who want some help with a configuration, but don’t need every popular mode on the planet, as you get with Prelude, Spacemacs or Doom. Some attendees tried it out during the presentation and liked the fact that it started up very quickly.
