When I thought I was gonna keep using Emacs I realised I needed to overcome some performance problems that weren’t easy to fix. That made me start my research again.
With Emacs my main problem is the fuzzy search in
helm-projectile, when you have a big project the search is very slow or it just hangs. I know I could do some profiling to get the real problem, but I ain’t have the time for it now. The linter is slow, the motion sometimes is slow too. I will probably tweak when the linter gets triggered.
- The search is also slow sometimes.
- Some packages just get broken, like
ex-modea week ago
- the packages aren’t mature enough.
- the motion transition is sometimes very slow.
- the undo history sometimes gets broken
For now I’ve decided to give Sublime Text 3 a try, and I got my nice shortcuts working easily and fast within a day. The configuration is easy, the packages are mature and work well, I can do everything I needed from Sublime and I’m happy with it. :-)
Sublime solved my problems for now.
