@jr0cket I do that with easier to use functions but sometimes when I do that CIDER slows down during execution since I think it's trying to display a giant blob of data.


Oh, thats not so good. You can skip over parts of the code that generate large results, using o rather than n . But if you have a lot of data going in from the start that could be tricky.


For a new user who maybe doesn't necessarily love vim but doesn't know emacs at all: vim mode or emacs mode in the initial setup?


give vim mode a go. You can always switch later and it's easy toggle between the two.


@kamuela I suggest learning Vim style editing is comparable in complexity to learning all the Emacs style keybindings. Actually I found Vim style editing easier than trying to remember if it was C-x or C-e a command was supposed to start with. And you dont need to learn all of vim straight away. Here is a quick Vim editing guide for Spacemacs


If you get stuck with Vim style editing, just hit C-z (Ctrl and z) and it switches that buffer to Emacs editing. The same keys switch you back to Vim style editing.


Unfortunately, my last pull request, broke the Spacemacs keybinding conventions, The PR has been rolled back, so if you update Spacemacs now, you will get the old set back. I will work on another PR, but first I have sought clarification about the conventions


Was cider supposed to auto-install when I selected y after trying to open a .clj file the first time?


@kamuela yes, the Clojure layer is automatically added to the list of layers in your .Spacemacs file. However, I always restart Emacs to make sure all the packages have been installed correctly.


I also recommend using the develop branch of Spacemacs, as it has lots of fixes and features not on the default master branch.
