There is a nice application called Portacle https://portacle.github.io
It’s basically an emacs with preconfigured packages. To run it, you don’t need emacs or
.emacs.d configured. It comes as a standalone application.
From the website:
Portacle is a complete IDE for Common Lisp that you can take with you on a USB stick. It is multi-platform and can be run on Windows, OS X, and Linux. Since it does not require any complicated installation process, it is set up and running in no time.
It lends itself very well both to absolute beginners of Lisp that just need a good starting point, as well as advanced users that want to minimise the time spent getting everything ready.
What I’m wondering is that would anyone be interested in a similar solution for Org-Roam? I have something similar set up on my own desktop because I want to avoid mixing my regular Emacs for coding and Emacs for note-taking. I have called it “RoamEx” for now, better name suggestions would be appreciated.
