I managed to get my Emacs init to complete in under 1 second without the help of a DSL such as use-package.
All I had to do was avoid bootstrapping package.el and install my packages some other way. One could do this with the popular straight.el package. Since I am using Guix, I decided to install my elisp packages that way.
The rest was just avoiding the use of (require) during the init phase.
@dekkzz78 I use daemon mode, too haha. Milliseconds of actual inconvenience. I just wanted to do it for whenever I do fire up a normal session. Trying to drink less coffee
@trevdev used to use daemon too, never gave me that much of a bonus so it went in one of my periodic init purges.
@dekkzz78 It's nice to have buffers/state the way I left it in the background. Especially if I accidently kill or close something
