The Goods

  • Clojure stuff
  • Latest org-mode
  • Latest magit
  • Sweet color theme, color-theme-miami-vice, based on color-theme-molokai


  • Emacs HEAD, GUI or CLI, on Mac or Linux
    • For instructions building Emacs source, see Debian/Ubuntu and Mac instructions below.
  • texinfo (to build magit): on Ubuntu, install with sudo apt-get install texinfo


  1. Clone this repository into ~/.emacs.d
  2. Run Emacs. When you see the message "Congrats, el-get is installed and ready to serve!", restart Emacs.
  3. Emacs will do stuff and then you'll see warning messages. Keep restarting Emacs until the messages go away.
  4. Done!
