Can some of the EMacs guys here tell us which plug-ins and

From personal experience, Emacs is an IDE that you have to grow up with, not
something you just install and use.  Learning and configuring it can pay off
only if you are going to use it for years.

I once made a serious attempt to switch to vim, because Emacs has a few
quirks, and I use vim keybindings in Emacs anyway.  I even wrote vim code to
add back a feature I missed.  The end result: I was back in Emacs, with a
couple of new features borrowed from vim.

I'm not sure I recommend Emacs though. There must be something more modern
to start with today.  Once you learned and configured it all to your liking,
you're sort of locked up.
