Hear, hear! Org-Mode 8.3.5 Is Released!
They took a newbie like me through the process of designing the thing and it was fun. Then they fabricated the thing and it rocks.
Emacs friends: there is enough key-space (128 keys) to easily place
- Ultra (Control-Meta-Super-Hyper)
ON EACH SIDE OF THE KEYBOARD
Strong thumb proponents: I’m trying to make it happen here by placing everything on the bottom two rows (including space, Fn, and enter).
Org-Mode code blocks are verbose and lovable for literate programming. Rasmus wants to use the raw literate document for a presentation though, so that verbosity won’t do. He explains here how to prettify code blocks. The value-add here is that he doesn’t have to weave (export) the document for it to look great in the presentation; it already does directly in the Emacs buffer.

Talk about fine taste!
Sounds like a delightful trip.
Here is an easy way to use both Emacs and OS X modifier keys when you are inside Emacs:
Toggle the right-option and function key to switch between using them inside Emacs and using them for OS X.
I used Karabiner to make
LEFT CONTROL when chorded. I used OS X to make
CAPS LOCK be
CONTROL. I didn’t change
COMMAND. I made this change because Emacs couldn’t ignore the key-event when it was coming from Karabiner.
Here is the code:
(help/on-osx (setq mac-control-modifier 'control) (setq mac-right-control-modifier 'left) (setq mac-command-modifier 'meta) (setq mac-right-command-modifier 'left) (setq mac-option-modifier 'super) (setq mac-right-option-modifier 'left) (setq mac-function-modifier 'hyper) (defun help/toggle-mac-right-option-modifier () "Toggle between passing option modifier either to Emacs or OS X." (interactive) (let ((old-ropt mac-right-option-modifier)) (setq mac-right-option-modifier (if (eq mac-right-option-modifier 'left) 'none 'left)) (message "Toggled `mac-right-option-modifier' from %s to %s." old-ropt mac-right-option-modifier))) (defun help/toggle-mac-function-modifier () "Toggle between passing function modifier either to Emacs or OS X." (interactive) (let ((old-func mac-function-modifier)) (setq mac-function-modifier (if (eq mac-function-modifier 'hyper) 'none 'hyper)) (message "Toggled `mac-function-modifier' from %s to %s." old-func mac-function-modifier))))
Here are three ways that I might want to quote content in my personal notes with Org-Mode:
My friends really might want to know how.
- Small changes to a 104 key ANSI skyrocket the price
- Stay close to the standard to make it affordable
- Contains all of the best attributes of written language
- Contains all of the best attributes of LISP… just more so
- Is a lyrical language
- Start with layout 35
- There are only 10 layers total
- Use Fn as a one-shot
- Perfect for F keys
- Use Layer as a toggle
- Choose layer with number keys
- Double-tap to return to base layer
- Remove layer row
