@jeff.terrell: Yeah, that has me more excited than most of the other features for some reason.

@akiva: It's a big deal. I think the discoverability of Spacemacs (which is largely thanks to guide-key/which-key) is one of the really important things they got right, and one of the biggest reasons why I would be OK recommending it to people who haven't tried vim/emacs before.

I fully agree. It’s one of the primary ‘pain attenuators’ that helped me transition from vim. And not seeing an endless sea of ‘Prefix command’ is really beneficial.

Yes, exactly!

There are also some nice perf improvements that (at least for me on my slow computer) have really improved usability in v104. SPC SPC <key>, I think called ace-jump-mode or something, was really slow for me. Also linewise visual selection (`V`) sometimes hung for like 5s before running, but now that's fixed. Good stuff!

Indeed. I’m living off of a two-year-old MBa with only 4 gigs of RAM. Every little bit helps.

@borkdude: I haven’t had time to read all that yet. Currently Cursive is only static analysis.

I know Visual Studio uses a hybrid approach for their JS support, which is generally considered state of the art these days

Much as I love Steve, he’s wrong about a bunch of stuff there.
