It's all these little things which are currently the only reason Emacs is worse than my old editor. In Sublime Text all these little things just work and I don't have to worry about it.
Hopefully we'll eventually fix most of these little things and then my risk of ragequitting emacs will drop to zero.
I don't mind the learning curve since I have a decent memory, spacemacs has good docs and I already know Vim. It's when I try and do something like work on Arduino code and flycheck throws a fit since it can't compile Arduino code (working on this), and semicolons automatically insert newlines when I don't want them to (cc-mode "feature", had to disable in .spacemacs) and smartparens breaks electric indent (I fixed this in #68). So I spend 5 hours fiddling with Emacs Lisp and 0 hours writing the Arduino code.
At this point I'm at low risk of ragequitting though because Emacs has lots of fanciness that is better than Sublime Text. I also to some extent enjoy spending hours fiddling with Emacs Lisp.
I'm taking the Coursera course Comprendre les microcontroleurs so I'm really interested in your work on Arduino compilation within Emacs.
I know your feeling, I was following the coursera course on Scala and it was a bit of pain to be able to use Emacs. So I'll do this cource next time but it is a waste of time I agree. At least I learnt few things in the process.
