wow, it's like I could have written this comment!

I'm starting a new project this week, and a fresh, empty org-roam database in my Spacemacs instance is really nice. I'm filing all these links and little org documents with references to each other and documenting my learning as I go. I'm also using Karabiner, Spacemacs, Org-Mode, etc etc. The Emacs subreddit is consistently one of the most helpful out there, it's fantastic.

(I used a new, clean org-roam database in an empty ~/Org folder because I wanted to leave behind all the cruft and stuff from the previous project, including potentially client-specific stuff.)

(ooh, ooh, I forgot: Emacs and org-mode are 2 things I donate to monthly. Emacs via $10 to the FSF, and org-mode via $5 via Github direct to the maintainer.)




Thanks for the tip re donation!

Exactly what I did and what gave me a boost in learning Emacs+Elisp and a fresh start. My old `.emacs' file was holding me back!


I wonder if I should do that. I'm deep into Spacemacs and wonder if I should go for a clean Emacs approach rather than the Vim bindings.


I abandoned vim bindings (evil-mode). There were too many edge cases where it didn't work, and where I had to customize it to make it work.

With a good keyboard setup (two Control keys on the left and right) Emacs keybindings aren't that bad. Actually I like them.
