I've given up on configuring my Emacs setup using Rational Emacs and gone back to Doom. I'd love to have my own custom config, but I'll never in a million years get close to the level of refinement that Doom offers. I'm better off just riding along with a "bloated", opinionated framework and spending time /using/ Emacs instead of playing with it.
@andyc Oh you're not the only one! Many people disagree about using a "kit". For me, every time I try building my own I end up with days/weeks of cursing and frantically trying to recreate all of the little niceties from Doom. Using a kit like Doom doesn't prevent me from learning Emacs. It also doesn't /force/ me to learn a bunch of stuff I don't want to :)
