Wonder if anyone is using color-theme anymore; seems like wasted effort to just bail on all of the great themes in there. Today I wanted to get color-theme-retro-green at least working, and here is what it took against 6.5.5 of the Marmalade release: (defun gcr/plist-to-alist (ls) "Convert a plist to an alist. Primarily for old […]
I always forget to set up js-mode correctly for auto-complete mode so I added this reminder in my startup: (unless (file-exists-p (concat (car (ac-dictionary-directories)) "/js-mode")) (display-warning :emergency "auto-complete not enabled for js-mode"))
Being partial to the full-REPL-reboot style of development (ala DrRacket) for most situations I wanted the same thing in Emacs with sml-mode. The value add is that you know all of your files are saved and that your environment is in a fresh and known state. I came up with this: (defun gcr/sml-eval-buffer () "Intelligently […]
Just put a new release of clips-mode out on Marmalade. Changes are minor, just taking over Andrey’s wonderful contribution to the community. Cut over to GPLV3, added a build script, and started adding TODOs in the task list.
Pretty Mode Plus 1.2 is out with a couple changes. Dmiti has kindly taken it over. He has great new ideas about flexibility, modularity, and test-ability. There are many great changes and more coming. For CLIPS users, there are a couple of niceties that you will enjoy.
real-auto-save is a great package if you like that sort of thing. For example, I like every file to always be saved without me worrying about doing it myself, so I stick with the default save occurring every 10 seconds. A really nice function to call on write-file-hooks is delete-trailing-whitespace, but, with 10s saves this […]
Thanks to some kind Emacsers I’m now in the modern age using Cask, and what ease it brings to using Emacs. It is truly a joy; anyone not using Emacs for fear of difficulty pulling in packages can let go of their hesitation. It is as easy as writing one config file, installing the packages, […]
IntelliJ has great editors. Idea, PyCharm, and WebStorm for a start. At their simplest you only need 4 settings to make them better out of the box: Right margin (columns): 80 Editor tabs: 100 Show line numbers: true Appearance Theme: IDEA (4.5) Keymap: Emacs Project Toolbar: M:1 Structure Toolbar: M:2 Changes Toolbar: M:3 Font: DejaVu […]
