ALEC’s a Language for Expressing Creativity

ALEC is the new configuration of my Emacs/Organization-Mode system. Just wanted to share some thoughts on the experience. The code says a lot, and the text, too, but I’m more interested in the experience.

For context, this is the next step of TC3F.

If nothing else, just know that the tangle time went down from 10m to 27 seconds :).

Don’t run mode hooks during org exports

binchen has a nice post about how to disable org mode hook execution during exports. It can be a surprise when you run in batch mode and your export breaks because of dependency failures. Oh yea, the major mode hooks run during export even though you personally are not opening a buffer, Emacs is doing so!

Here is his solution:

(defun is-buffer-file-temp ()
  "If (buffer-file-name) is nil or a temp file or HTML file converted from org file"
  (let ((f (buffer-file-name))
        (rlt t))
    (if f
        (if (and (not (string-match temporary-file-directory f))
                 (not (file-exists-p (replace-regexp-in-string "\.html$" ".org" f))))
          (setq rlt nil)))
