Doom Emacs is a configuration framework for Emacs tailored for Emacs bankruptcy veterans who want less framework in their frameworks, a modicum of stability (and reproducibility) from their package manager, and the performance of a hand rolled config (or better).
It can be a foundation for your own config or a resource for Emacs enthusiasts to learn more about our favorite operating system.
Its name is an homage to id Software’s classic game.
- Minimalistic good looks inspired by modern editors.
- Curated and sane defaults for many packages, (major) OSes, and Emacs itself.
- A modular organizational structure for separating concerns in your config.
- A standard library designed to simplify your elisp bike shedding.
- A declarative package management system (powered by straight.el) with a command line interface. Install packages from anywhere, not just (M)ELPA, and pin them to any commit.
- Optional vim emulation powered by evil-mode, including ports of popular vim plugins like vim-sneak, vim-easymotion, vim-unimpaired and more!
- Opt-in LSP integration for many languages, using lsp-mode or eglot
- Supports many programming languages. Includes syntax highlighting, linters/checker integration, inline code evaluation, code completion (where possible), REPLs, documentation lookups, snippets, and more!
- Supports many tools, like docker, pass, ansible, terraform, and more.
- A Spacemacs-esque keybinding scheme, centered around leader and localleader prefix keys (SPC and SPC m for evil users, C-c and C-c l for vanilla users).
- A rule-based popup manager to control how temporary buffers are displayed (and disposed of).
- Per-file indentation style detection and editorconfig integration. Let someone else argue about tabs vs spaces.
- Project-management tools and framework-specific minor modes with their own snippets libraries.
- Project search (and replace) utilities, powered by ripgrep and ivy or helm.
- Isolated and persistent workspaces (also substitutes for vim tabs).
- Support for Chinese and Japanese input systems.
- Save a snapshot of your shell environment to a file for Emacs to load at startup. No more struggling to get Emacs to inherit your PATH, among other things.
