I have spacemacs and a problem I have compared to using terminal+vim is that I could do everything in the terminal : create files, directories, whatever and whenever I need to edit a file I just type vim file. Now to use spacemacs I basically have to tab to exmaces and type the path to the file I want to edit.

So I think you would need to console inside emacs, is there such service ?

  • Wrt your tagging this with terminal-mode: That's about running Emacs in a terminal/console. You're asking about running a shell inside Emacs.

M-x shell

See the Emacs manual, node Interactive Shell.
