Mastering Emacs (from scratch)


I recently had an epiphany about Emacs key bindings…

The most compelling reason I’ve found yet for switching to the “normal” Emacs keybindings is that many of the same bindings work everywhere on a Mac. This just occurred to me and now I have to decide if I want to lose weeks of my life to making the switch.

So now I’m re-reading Mastering Emacs with the goal of building everything from scratch and learning the “Emacs Way” of doing things.

My entry into Emacs was via Spacemacs and evil-mode so I have many old habits to break.

I guess I’ll be losing those weeks after all.
