Hi everyone. Just wanted to announce to any emacs/spacemacs users that I’m
working on a spacemacs layer for
Julia. Based on the current
number of open PRs, I doubt it will be merged any time soon, but it can still be
useful even if it’s not in the core spacemacs distribution. While the ESS layer
already supports Julia, I think it makes sense to not keep the emacs Julia
experience so tied together with R. Also, integrating julia-mode with lsp-mode
already gets you a lot of the features from ESS, so it’s not like we need it
once lsp-mode stabilizes a bit.
I’m a relative newcomer to elisp, and as you can see in the PR description,
there are a few kinks with the layer right now, so I’d really appreciate any
help Y’all could offer. Especially helpful would be anyone who knows how to iron
out the mentioned kinks with lsp-ui or who’s interested in digging through the
ESS layer and moving the Julia-specific functionality into the new Julia layer
as an alternative backend.
