Setup Emacs for Python with Treesitter and Eglot

"better" gx for vim

Vim has built-in gx mapping to open an URL under the cursor defined in the bundled netrw plugin. It is limited to barebone urls and quite often that is not enough.

I have come up with a better gx mapping (for me of course) that is able to open:

Simple Templates In Vim

Simple journal with vim

So how would you use your text editor to make a daily notes?

For vim I end up using simple approach:

  • have a ~/docs/journal/ directory where I keep yearly journals in asciidoc format (one can use markdown of course).

  • have a mapping to quickly open a journal ready to enter you thoughts, notes or a todos for a day.
