Emacs client for the Opensource API


Installation via package.el

package.el is the built-in package manager in Emacs.

opensource.el is available on the two major community maintained repositories - MELPA STABLE, MELPA.

You can install opensource.el with the following commnad:

M-x package-install [RET] opensource [RET]

or by adding this bit of Emacs Lisp code to your Emacs initialization file (.emacs or init.el):

(unless (package-installed-p 'opensource)
  (package-install 'opensource))

If the installation doesn't work try refreshing the package list:

M-x package-refresh-contents [RET]

Keep in mind that MELPA packages are built automatically from the master branch, meaning bugs might creep in there from time to time. Never-the-less, installing from MELPA is the recommended way of obtaining opensource.el, as the master branch is normally quite stable and "stable" (tagged) builds are released somewhat infrequently.

With the most recent builds of Emacs, you can pin opensource.el to always use MELPA Stable by adding this to your Emacs initialization:

(add-to-list 'package-pinned-packages '(opensource . "melpa-stable") t)

Via el-get

el-get is another popular package manager for Emacs. If you're an el-get user just do M-x el-get-install [RET] opensource [RET].


You can install opensource.el manually by placing it on your load-path and require ing it. Many people favour the folder ~/.emacs.d/vendor.

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/vendor/")
(require 'opensource)




opensource.el use [Cask][] for dependencies management. Install it and retrieve dependencies :

$ curl -fsSkL | python
$ export PATH="$HOME/.cask/bin:$PATH"
$ cask


  • Launch unit tests :

      $ make test
