Centered Window Mode

Global minor mode that centers the text of the window when there’s only one window in the frame.

As soon as another window is visible the text goes back to normal while more than one window is visible.

You may want to activate `visual-line-mode` if your lines go out of reach.



Manual installation

First, download centered-window-mode.el in your emacs load path.

Then, to make it available, add this to your configuration file:

(require 'centered-window-mode)

Installation via el-get

If you use el-get, the emacs package manager, simply add centered-window-mode to your packages list.



Simply type M-x centered-window-mode in any buffer.


To make this permanent, add this to your emacs configuration file:

(require 'centered-window-mode)
(centered-window-mode t)
