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 ()
  (interactive)
  "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)))
    rlt))

Interesting.

ProjectTemplate for R

ProjectTemplate is a system for automating the thoughtless parts of a data analysis project

Just read the overview. If you are not already doing these things, by any means, then see what this package has to offer immediately. It will make your life better.

If you are not convinced yet, then read the sections listed on the left. They do so, so much.

One nice example is the great flexibility provided in its configuration. For example, automatically converting loaded data.frame to data.table is just one flag, very nice.
