I am so delighted to have someone sharing this playground, whenever you have time. Do please feel free to ask questions and share ideas and frustrations! And I can quite see how this is the opposite of embedded programming. I have wanted to write something like Afterglow since I was a teenager tinkering with 8 bit, 1 MHz processors. But they just didn’t have the horsepower to support it. Now we have cycles and memory to spare, and can use lovely abstractions like Clojure and REPLs. I’m glad Fireplace works well! Trying to change from a deeply comfortable vim environment to emacs would be insane, just as the reverse would be for me, with my decades of emacs experience and configuration context.
