(Doom) Emacs


I am using Doom Emacs for many things in my life:

  • writing this documentation
  • writing manuscripts or papers
  • playing some music with Sardine.

The venerable Emacs is of course able to manage Sardine! Please use the python.el plugin. This mode will allow you to pipe easily your code from a text buffer to a running interpeter. The plugin is adding quality-of-life features for working with Python in general but also makes working with a REPL much easier and much more convenient. If you are new to the vast world of Emacs, it is probably worthwhile to take a look at Doom Emacs  or Spacemacs, both being equally great. I will not dive into more details. If you are able to configure Emacs, you will be able to configure your editor for Sardine :).

The following code is the one I use for running Sardine using Doom Emacs. It is not great and I should probably make something cleaner or even create a dedicated package for Sardine but life is short, and nobody is writing the docs while I finetune my Emacs config.
