Re your last sentence, specifically the grid and gridset packages might be helpful to the OP (though both have their quirks).

comment TikZ labelling venn diagram
It's important to note that you cannot use spacesin the barycentric coordinate specifications (like A = 1/2). This is noted in section 13.2.2 of the TikZ manual, but it wouldn't be obvious to someone adapting the code from this answer. Adding the spaces leads to an error.

comment Tikz externalization figure not aligned/caption missing
It works fine for me. Can you post your compile logs? BTW, you should use \begin{frame}...\end{frame} instead of \frame{...}

comment How to include date for each item in *RefTeX Select*?
Reftex is supposed to be showing you the year between the title and the page/chapter info (red in your screenshot). What version of emacs/reftex do you have installed? What is the value of the variable reftex-bib-year-face (you can see this by switching to the *scratch* buffer and typing "reftex-bib-year-face" followed by C-j

comment Setting up RefTeX with biblatex citation commands
@N.N., your link also says "But it is OK to use eval-after-load in your personal customizations if you don't feel that they must meet the design standards [...] for wider use." Since this code is run at emacs startup, I use eval-after-load to defer loading the reftex-vars library (until the first TeX file is opened), which cuts down on startup time – drastically, if you use eval-after-load consistently. It's a fairly common .emacs idiom AFAIK. It's also possible to use the M-x customize interface for deferred variable setting, but I dislike it (and it can't really be copy/pasted).

comment Any suggestions/requests for features for a new package that allows disabling ligatures for (pre)selected words?
Even though you can't compile a list of kernings for all fonts in existence, it would be helpful to provide a test document, which uses a for-loop to typeset common "problem words" with different kernings. That way, any user can put their own \setmainfont at the top of the file, and quickly inspect the output to see what the best value for their font is. You also might want to use e.g. GitHub to allow users to easily submit the kernings for their favorite font – that way you could ship a reasonably large list of defaults without having to generate it yourself.

comment Using minted and tabs
When I copy/paste your MWE, I get spaces for indentation, instead of tabs. I'm not sure if it's possible to put literal tab characters into HTML, so you should probably link to a file or remind people to change the spaces to tabs before running the code.

comment Having trouble with pgfSweave and tikzDevice
I don't think you can indent the <<...>> and @ lines. Does it work if you remove the indentation from those lines?
