For me, the ideas in eev are interesting.
eev changes my emacs settings too much so
I use eev-beginner only (subset of eev).
There are a few things I learned to use quickly:
- duplicate line with M-h M-2
- eepitch for executable notes F8
I like that Eduardo calls a sexp a button and pressing M-e executes
that sexp. Before eev, I used to do something similar, having sexp in
comments and pressing C-e (go to end of line) and then C-x C-e
(evaluate last sexp), but Eduardo named it properly, gave it a key
(M-e) and built whole way of thinking around that.
eepitch blocks are much more useable than for example org-mode code
blocks, where it is difficult to figure out, how to specify/configure
the code block. With eepitch, it is simply all commands, and if you
for example tunnel ssh or run stuff in various languages
non-homogenously, it is just lines of texts run on a key press F8.
Most of the time I do not use debian and globally installed packages
so the predefined eepitch commands are not useable for me, but it is
trivial to redefine them or define my own eepitch commands.
I also use vertically split emacs window since ages ago so eev has
been a natural fit for my screen habits.
However, I find that most of the stuff in eev is rather Eduardo-specific
so it is probably better strategy to cherry pick the good, reuseable
parts that fit your way.
For example, a lot of things are redundant:
or too long and not so readable (many of those find- functions for
example). It is easier to define my own functions, e.g. (rg-notes
"foo") which searches foo in my notes, etc.
There are also already existing ways of hyperlinking so for many things
I prefer ffap style M-f jumping or M-. and M-, code jumping on the
actual text rather than eev style button.
