Alright, I'm going to make a serious effort to live as much of my life in emacs as possible for a few days next week, and see how that goes.
What are the vital emacs extensions, in your esteemed opinions?
Is there a good gopher client? Markdown preview? Automatic Jeckylling? git integration? email client? Libpurple interface?
Like, there's gotta be a mastodon client for emacs, right?
@ajroach42 1) godspeed, 2) please write up something about it when you're done! I keep wanting to try the emacs life but have never gotten there.
This may be partially b/c all the e-mail clients scare me.
@hummingrain I'll definitely write up something about it.
Now that I have a decent computer (and I should be getting paid tomorrow, so I can get internet at home again) I'm expecting to be writing a lot more, again.
@ajroach42 is there a text web browser? You could probably use brutaldon.
@vector There's a browser, yeah.
@ajroach42 there is mastodon.el, or you can use brutaldon in the built-in browser
@ajroach42 if you build it, they will come.
@tomey @ajroach42 for git, magit is considered best of all git client.
for email, it's hard to setup. but there's gnus (builtin, hard to learn) and mu4e and others. https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/mu4e
there's markdown mode. but in general people use org-mode instead. http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/emacs_org_markup.html
there are one or more packages for Jeckylling, well integrated. should be trivial to find.
@tomey @ajroach42 one can start emacs from scratch. Learn n built up one's own config.
or, there's several starter kits with all things bundled.
@ajroach42 I definitely have opinions on this.
@ajroach42 magit for git; no question. for libpurple I'd recommend erc+bitlbee. mu4e is good for mail if you can pull stuff into a maildir using offlineimap or mbsync.
For git magit is simply the best interface ever conceived
Mail try wanderlust or gnus I'd guess
