Please maintain a community wiki answer which describes email lists, wikis, blogs, irc channels, forums, or other communities in which GNU Emacs is the primary topic.

In order to be listed, a community must be 'open', meaning that anyone can participate.

Exceptions to that rule can, should, and have been made. Employ judgement. For example: of course Sacha's blog and Xah's site belong on this list.

    Idea: merge all the answers in one and make this answer Community Wiki. So it won't be too broad.

    Agree with @nicael on the community wiki option: I'd like to see such a list, but it doesn't lend itself well to the Q&A format on this site.

    Personal blogs are not generally available to communities to participate in, other than by adding comments. If this page is kept (too broad IMO), I think it should at least be limited to general, open Emacs communities.

    The community wiki answer below is exactly what I was looking for! Is it possible for me to withdraw the question without losing the answer? Or, how should the question be edited so that it is an appropriate container for the answer?

    @daveloyall I've flagged this so that a moderator can make it CW. (FWIW, 2 downvotes is not that much for this type of question)

    FWIW: I don't really see anything (useful) at the Facebook Emacs page.

emacs.zeef.com is actually an impressive resource for anything that's Emacs related, communities included.


If someone is "vim" converter (like me), then there is also spacemacs quite active community: Spacemacs github

We have gitter chatroom (and IRC room connected with it): Gitter
