Spacemacs is a configuration framework for GNU Emacs.[5] It can take advantage of all of GNU Emacs' features, including both graphical and command-line user interfaces, and being executable under X Window System and within a Unix shell terminal.[6] It is free and open-source software (FOSS) released under the GNU General Public License version 3.

Spacemacs consists mainly of configuration files, pre-defined internal commands, and configurations for various plug-ins (called 'packages').[7][8][9] It features a novel mnemonic key binding design aimed at improving ergonomics, a system for adding or excluding pre-configured features called 'layers', and includes verbose software documentation. It has three user-selectable input modes: Emacs mode, Vim mode (based on the evil Emacs package for Vim emulation), and Hybrid mode.

As of 2018, its repository on GitHub has been starred over 16,000 times and has over 7,400 commits.[10]
