When I first started learning Clojure, I tried to use Vim as that was my editor of choice. Also, I had very little experience with emacs. Well, after stuggling getting Vim to work, I realized I was swimming upstream. I switched to emacs, and I actually became pretty proficient with it.
However, after a while I noticed my hands were getting fatigued, and I really missed Vim. I started to look at options of configuring emacs including using voice commands for the meta key. While looking for these solutions, I thought I would give Vim one last try with a plugin I saw recently called fireplace.
Well, I have been using it all week and love it and will see how it goes from here. So thanks a lot to the fireplace team and others. There are still a few things that I like in emacs better but my hands seem to be happy. Anyways, I hope this is useful for those that are new to Clojure or those that dismissed Vim for Clojure because of previous experiences.
