There are notes on what I did to setup emacs via spacemacs on my mac (lots of macs there)
Installed emacs with:
There is a problem with `~/.emacs.d/.cache/savehist` getting huge.
Ater messing around with a bunch of big files it grew to 500+MB. That was causing Emacs/Spacemacs to hang repeatedly for several seconds.
Deleteing that files seems to have fixed things, but I still need to figure out how to set it so that it doesn't become a problem.
installed ipython via `pip3 install ipython`
tried to do that to get outptu moving faster in the emacs terminal window, but it didn't work. just doing stuff in org mode source blocks for now
