Most of the time I use a Doom Emacs configuration, but sometimes I feel like testing something new. I’ve been enamored by Nano Emacs lately, but there’s no way I’ll switch to it permanently.

Today I learned about Chemacs.

Chemacs 2 is an Emacs profile switcher, it makes it easy to run multiple Emacs configurations side by side.

So I configured Chemacs and added profiles for my default Doom config and also one for Nano. This is crazy, but I can now run both configurations at the same time!. Here’s a screenshot. The left window is Org-journal in Nano and the right window is my org-mode configuration in Doom.

Here’s a helpful video showing how it all works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHdM2wVM1PI
