Re: customizing Org for legibility

I think it's a noble effort to popularize org-mode and to make it easier to use. And I learned today about mixed-pitch :)

However, a lot of visual configuration depends on fonts, colors, and other things which may vary a lot between users. While most of us by now probably use a graphical version of Emacs, any such default settings should be done with care for users who still use Emacs on a pure-text interface.

Making some default prettification as part of Spacemacs's org-mode layer would be nice, since it includes a lot of customization and eye candy already.

In case it's of use or for reference, I wrote a "Beautifying org-mode" blog post some time ago: https://zzamboni.org/post/beautifying-org-mode-in-emacs/

(the corresponding section of my config file is here: https://github.com/zzamboni/dot-emacs/blob/master/init.org#beautifying-org-mode)

All the best,

I aim to popularize Spacemacs as a personal info manager. Next task is
the Org configuration layer.

As preparation, I wrote a post critiquing Org's out-of-the-box
legibility. I believe a default configuration should cater to
beginners, since they're least likely to know how to customize. On the
other hand, maybe a package should set defaults to the median user and
leave beginner intake to distributions.

Along the way, I discovered mixed-pitch, which fixed most of my
complaint. It's quite obscure. I'd like to include it in Spacemacs'
Org layer.

I'm sharing my thoughts to see whether I'm missing anything else.
