Doom, Spacemacs, Scimax and popular configs
The Emacs starter kits Doom, Spacemacs and Scimax come with a curated
set of packages and configurations that aim to enhance Org mode (and
Emacs more generally) for particular use cases. They include Org
along with integrations between
org-mode and other modes (such as
evil-mode). Here are links to the current packages included with
Doom, and Spacemacs. Scimax is deeply integrated with Org so a good
place to start is the manual. Doom installs a version of Org that is
close to the development
HEAD, while Spacemacs and Scimax track org
Starter kits often make significant changes to the default user experience for Emacs. If you are looking for something closer to vanilla Emacs there are popular configs such as Purcell's emacs.d that include org-mode customization and Org-related packages.
