Is it just me? Or is spacemacs getting smoother and faster?


Spacemacs has always been smooth and fast for me. I did add a could of Emacs performance tweaks to the config a couple of years ago. LSP did slow things down a bit in the early days, but is not an issue now (more optimization in the Clojure server process and switching off unwanted IDE features) There are continuing updates to Spacemacs and Emacs thought, so it's worth running a fairly recent Spacemacs commit and Emacs 27 (or 28) It also depends what your are using Spacemacs for and how many really long lines are in the files you open. For example, Emacs 27 did greatly improve the speed of JavaScript files and there are many features focused on enhanced performance.
