Kite, a New Era in Coding
check out, a new editor tool.
It signifies a new era in coding, where, instead manually searching stackoverflow etc to help code, the tool auto displays docs and code examples etc as you type. It's like name completion to the next level.
I helped develop the emacs plugin. 😸

the supremum of keybinding
recently had to work on a Mac laptop. So, that forced many improvements to xah fly keys. Now, it works on laptop out of the box. Emacs: Xah Fly Keys
you should use xah-fly-keys or ergoemacs-mode http://ergoemacs.github.io/ Matt's been working on ergoemacs-mode all this time. If you have a issue, post on github, he responds and fixes usually within a day.
There are many other emacs packages of alt keybinding. If efficiency is the judge, none comes close to xah-fly-keys. Actually, unless there's a system of steno based keybinding, there's none as efficient as xah-fly-keys in human history.
