@michal-atlas:matrix.orgMichal_AtlasHeya, so I've been meaning to switch to exwm but the idea that whenever emacs is busy I'd be locked out of my wm really scratches me the wrong way, is there a way around it, or a way you cope?16:57:00

Actually in general.
I've been using Exwm for a bit. I have locked up, but Ctrl-G a few times seems to resolve it (I'm learning elisp and the alert window won't work in Exwm). It's not too bad, the freezing, I mean

@michal-atlas:matrix.orgMichal_AtlasOh, alright, well C-g does unfreeze emacs, but it sort of also stops it from doing whatever it was doing, which might've been important22:44:38
@michal-atlas:matrix.orgMichal_Atlasthank you for the input22:45:02

Just so you know, I've been loving exwm (came over from Stumpwm) and have had very little problem streaming data, working on LaTex, org documents, pretty much running anything I want. I'm enjoying it immensely. I recommend SystemCrafter's videos (on YouTube), he'll show you how to set it up and optimize it!

@michal-atlas:matrix.orgMichal_AtlasWow, i knew SystemCrafters and knew he used it, but never noticed a video specifically on exwm, that and your enthusiasm has convinced me to give it a strong push and read the following few days, again thanks a bunch. P.S.: cool distro, never seen it before, gonna look it up what it's about too Also, what is that colour theme? I've been meaning to find something of the sort.23:10:41

Also, what is that colour theme? I've been meaning to find something of the sort.

The distro is Redcore, a binary Gentoo system, the theme may be either cyberpunk or gruvbox.

@yuu:matrix.orgyuudid emacs-ng people develop any apps akin to EAF? i can't find anything on their website on that.03:03:35
@akater:matrix.orgakater My last two patches to emacs didn't do well. One was really big and convoluted; another one was not so big and well documented but after several improvement cycles I got a complaint that it defines an iteration macro that's only used once and it better be explicit loop instead, and all motivation just suddenly left me. Then fresh builds of Emacs & Org started breaking some things for me, and then lots of non-Emacs things happened in life but now I should return to it and I still can't make myself do it. 04:31:52

I know this feeling (: However, Emacs devs are trying their best to make sure that every commit is going to be stable under various edge cases and follow the conventions. They have to be hard on the patches or we would not have the remarkable stability of Emacs.
