[erlang-questions] Erlang Text Editor Searching
Tue Nov 27 15:13:38 CET 2018
Thanks a lot for all your suggestions.
After considering these ideas, I decide to learn Emacs with extensions for Erlang at first, since Emacs is not easy to get started, I am not sure whether Emacs will be my final choice.
I wrote some front-end projects with VS Code, I must say, as a text editor, VS Code is just wonderful for front-end developers out-of-the-box.
The Erlang extension for VS Code is also very easy to use.
Actually, in my view, as a project, the default behavior is very important. Users should take very simple/stupid steps to get into the project, the advanced feature or customization should be another topic. VS Code is a good example, I download it, open project folder, then write the code(front-end); or, I install the Erlang extension, then write the Erlang code.
And yes, I know Emacs is very flexible, but the Emacs world is just not easy to get into.
I used vi before, and am happy about it for simple file editing, but never tried vim with advanced plugins.
Use Erlang as an another example, I am attracted by the world view of Erlang: observe the world, and write program based on the observation.
This is simple, and I get started without too much pain. And I know Erlang is hard in some sense, but this is another topic.
I think I will use Emacs and VS Code at the same time. If I have time and configured Emacs to a handy state, It will be choice.

>>> I build Erlang from source, and I can use the basic Erlang Mode happily.
>>> But seems the basic erlang-mode with emacs does not contain some *key* features would be needed as a modern text editor, like auto-complete.
>>> Actually, as a text editor, I think I just need the auto completion of library/custom modules and functions, other advanced features is not needed for now.
>>> Which text editor do you use in daily life?
>>> I really want to get me into emacs world but found not quite easy, a suggestion about emacs extensions would be very helpful.
>>> By the way, I tried Visual Studio Code with the Erlang extension, it works amazing.
