Re: Thoughts on sweet-expression editor modes (including ParEdit operations)


That’s a nice coincidence - feel free to reuse work I did on the wisp-mode - it should be pretty easy to adapt: 
- https://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/wisp/src/tip/wisp-mode.el
- http://marmalade-repo.org/packages/wisp-mode/0.1

(along with some todos for making it better…)

> One editor mode in particular that was pointed out to me is ParEdit:

I also got requests for paredit functionality, along with some quite enthusiastic reports of paredit-users, so I think that route is a good one - especially if the goal is to get experienced schemers on board.

I did not yet use paredit, though, so I’m not the best person to implement it (yet?). Working on indentation-sensitive lisp with good highlighting/font-locking is a completely different experience than writing the bare text, so I can also attest myself that editor support is important.

Best wishes,
