I was a long user of Vim. Recently, I have started using Spacemacs. It is a community-driven distribution of Emacs, which is actually a configuration repository developed on GitHub. In this post, I will introduce some of its features and explain how I liked it. My history with text editors I started using Vim in 2011. It was six years ago. Note that I have never been a professional programmer or software developer and I didn’t have a chance to get a programming job.
