Are you using https://emacsformacosx.com/ or some other installation?

dpsutton15:06:13

railway cats and brew

practicalli-john15:06:54

Its probably all those 😺 's

minimal15:06:48

Must be something up

dpsutton15:06:50

26.2. what are you running?

minimal15:06:58

GNU Emacs 26.2 (build 1, x86_64-apple-darwin18.2.0, Carbon Version 158 AppKit 1671.2)
 of 2019-04-14

8.5gb of swap too.. that’s when you know things will get slower 😂

practicalli-john18:06:30

Sounds like a run-away process to me.... When Emacs is using more memory than Chrome, you know there is something very wrong

dpsutton18:06:59

haha agreed. need to figure out how to investigate

ag18:06:54

Yeah, that’s strange indeed. My Emacs with over 300 packages installed, never gets over 500M.

dpsutton18:06:53

i think its fine on my linux box. not sure why its crazy here

ag18:06:49

is it reproducible?

dpsutton18:06:35

just by running emacs unfortunately 😞

ag18:06:25

maybe try removing all .elc files and recompiling?

dpsutton18:06:47

hm. maybe this is nothing?

open -a /Applications/Emacs.app --args -q --no-site-file

Even with the full Spacemacs, 27 layouts and a long list of buffers and modes that have been open for a month, Emacs on Ubuntu is a very reasonable 393Mb
