For me as a (former) Vim user, Spacemacs made it incredibly easy to switch to the powerful Emacs platform. What took me months of configuring Vim to get a decent IDE experience took me only five minutes with Spacemacs. The concept of triggering actions using the spacebar is extremely elegant and convenient. With the latex and org-mode layers it becomes one of the best Latex editors, project management softwares and blog editors avaiable. Although using VIM keybindings is recommended, Spacemacs also offers the possibility to use Emacs or general Linux/Windows/OS X keybindings. I used Neovim before, and I tried Visual Studio code, Pycharm, Sublime and several other IDE's but Spacemacs simply blew my mind! See More
Daniel Nicolai's Experience
Space-lead key bindings are organized in mnemonic namespaces. For instance, buffer actions are under SPC b, file actions are under SPC f, project actions are under SPC p, search actions are under SPC s, and so on. Keybindings are consistent across the whole distribution thanks to a set of conventions. See More
At the heart of Spacemacs, the configuration layers group packages configuration into semantic units that can be toggled on and off. The architecture is simple but powerful, allowing the user to easily manage configuration dependencies between hundreds of packages. See More
Very good IDE. Works for all languages and integrates very well. See More
