Better tools than text editors


(Andy Wootton) #1

In ‘Living Clojure’, Carin Meier suggests that you don’t try learning emacs and Clojure at the same time. This was good advice that I wish someone had given me earlier. She then recommends lighttable but it doesn’t work on 32-bit Linux [I thought that was due to Electron but I have Slack running now], probably not on 32-bit Windows either, so I haven’t used it much.

The guy who led the Crowdfunder for Lighttable is now developing Eve. There are some classic lines in this article:

DEC had an editor called EVE. I guess he’s having another bite of the apple. :-/
