Comment: Re:Emacs? (Score 3, Informative) 831

by speck (#35646654) Attached to: Why Mac OS X Is Unsuitable For Web Development

Emacs works fine for python-based web development. I don't use it myself, but there's no particular reason it wouldn't work, and AquaMacs is actually a very pleasant version of Emacs, both true to Emacs's spirit and nicely integrated with OSX. I agree that in general Emacs isn't the best tool for every job, but there is historical precedent for using it to develop a language with strong dynamic types. It's clearly not the best choice for Java-based web development (I can say that with a certain amount of experience), but that doesn't mean it's the worst choice for all web development either.

Be sociable. Speak to the person next to you in the unemployment line tomorrow.
