Should you read HN comments?
The answer is still, very much a no.
Dired on vanilla Emacs *can* be made into a convenient everyday file manager, you just have to:
- Set file type and app associations in the user-defined alist
- Suppress new windows on opening files asynchronously
- Get rid of that fucking annoying prompt (which must be answered by a fully-typed "yes" or "no") on opening files asynchronously after the first
- Define a new function so files are opened either by Emacs or by an associated app depending on whether the file type has been defined in the above alist, then bind that function to Return
- If you want files opened by Emacs to open in a new window to the right the way Spacemacs does out of the box, advise Emacs's file opening function to enable that behavior
Simple, huh The beauty of Emacs is that all of this *can* be done and that's the way I'm using it, but it's pretty clear dired isn't designed to be a modern file manager. Heck, Emacs itself predates modern computing.

New #emacs #blog post: "State of Emacs Lisp on Guile": https://emacsninja.com/posts/state-of-emacs-lisp-on-guile.html
#Guile is a #Scheme that gets a disproportionate amount of attention when mentioned with Emacs in a sentence. I'm sick of the occasional r/emacs or emacs-devel thread with little facts and much speculation, so here's some original research of what you can and can not do with Guile's Emacs Lisp implementation.

I make it from collecting the links during the week. Do let me know what you think. Thanks
Clojure Weekly newsletter
There were a few Clojure themed newsletters launched over the years. But none of them seem active now. So I'm launching this. If nothing else, at least my friends will subscribe :)
Let's see how long I can keep it going.
Emacs has a chart library built-in! Plus, it works in a terminal!
I must say I'm impressed.
