Assimilate Emacs packages as Git submodules
Borg is a bare-bones package manager for Emacs packages. It
provides only a few essential features and should be combined with
other tools such as Magit,
Borg assimilates packages into the
~/.emacs.d repository as Git
submodules. An assimilated package is called a drone and a borg-based
~/.emacs.d repository is called a collective.
About this collective
This particular collective is intended to be used to bootstrap private configurations. Fork your own copy and then start assimilating as you please.
If you wish you can later merge changes from the upstream repository, to get updates for the drones that have been assimilated in the base configuration. Very rarely additional drones might be assimilated or the configuration of existing drones might be tweaked.
Or you can just update and further configure these drones as you would update the drones you have assimilated yourself.
If you do base your own configuration on this collective and make it publically available as source of inspiration for others, then please do so by forking the upstream repository, which is available from Github, Gitlab, and Bitbucket.
You might also want to adjust this description.
It is also possible to create collectives that can be shared between
and worked on by many Emacs users, i.e. borg-based starter-kits.
Check out alternative collectives by browsing the repositories owned
emacscollective organisation/group/team, which is available
on Github, Gitlab, and Bitbucket.
Another alternative is the
bootstrap collective. It assimilates a
borg itself, and is intended for users for whom even
emacs.g collective is to opinionated.
