Interested in learning Common Lisp? The majority of tutorials I've run across throw you into emacs to get started...the hiccup there being that emacs is, whilst v powerful, a big thing that needs to be learned in and of itself. This makes Common Lisp a wee bit harder to dive in to. My recommendation is to skip emacs until you are a bit cozier with Common Lisp itself. For editor/repl integration I think Sublime Text with the lispindent and SublimeREPL packages is a solid starting place.
@eli_oat CL Cookbook has some good alternatives to emacs IMO: https://lispcookbook.github.io/cl-cookbook/editor-support.html
Notably, I saw this for sublime: https://github.com/s-clerc/slyblime
A personal mastodon instance for me and people I know. I'll only approve people I know.
