A first (not bad) emacs experience

A first (not bad) emacs experience

Well, not for me. I have been using emacs for almost a decade now and I have used bad configs and good ones. In the past few years that I am feeling more comfortable with lisp, I have been enjoying to tweak the configuration more and more.

My girlfriend has recently come to the good side of workplace and could drop Windows and its tools. In this new world, she tried to go into the Linux and emacs was something that I was more than eager to show her!

The problem

Well, emacs has quite of an interesting learning curve source

and I totally agree with it! So I created what it could be a first step to use it.

What is FirstEmacs?

What I looked for was a way to drop the two most troublesome keys in emacs (in my opinion) and its consequences. Which are Ctrl+x, Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v for cutting, copying and pasting. And emacs has most of its hotkeys attached to Ctrl+x and Ctrl+c.

It took me some time, but then I found wakib-keys. Which was pretty much the solution I was looking for. Basically, remaps the standart Ctrl+x and Ctrl+c to Ctrl+e and Ctrl+d.

Last note

Writing this assured the usefulness in the notation C-c and C-x for Ctrl-c and Ctrl-x (and so on) =].
