Closes #11
Latest commit c180e05 Jul 30, 2017



Guru mode disables some common keybindings and suggests the use of the established Emacs alternatives instead.



Just drop guru-mode.el somewhere in your load-path. I favour the folder ~/.emacs.d/vendor:

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


If you're an Emacs 24 user or you have a recent version of package.el you can install guru-mode from the MELPA repository.

Emacs Prelude

guru-mode is naturally part of the Emacs Prelude. If you're a Prelude user - guru-mode is already properly configured and ready for action.


You can enable guru-mode globally like this:

(guru-global-mode +1)

Most likely you'd like to enable guru-mode only in specific modes (like prog-mode in Emacs 24):

(add-hook 'prog-mode-hook 'guru-mode)

If you only want to get warnings when you the arrow keys use the following config:

(setq guru-warn-only t)
