While F# is first-class citizen in Visual Studio, there’s also support for text editors:
- via fsharp/fsharpbinding for Emacs, Vim, and Sublime Text

After opening Emacs, it should show
~/.spacemacs under Recent files. – Click on that file to open it.
Add F# as shown in the following diff-output:
Then hit CTRL+C & CTRL+C, and the Spacemacs layer for F# will install itself.
