Emacs Configuration

This file bootstraps a complete Emacs environment to my liking.
If you’re new to Emacs check out spacemacs:

If you need some help, send me some electronic mail.

(setq user-full-name "Chad Stovern"
      user-mail-address "")

Table of contents

Package management

I use use-package for installing and managing package loading. This section contains configuration to bootstrap use-package.

Track emacs load time

I like to keep track of how long it takes emacs to load, so this will establish a starting timestamp.

(defconst emacs-start-time (current-time))

Emacs garbage collection threshold settings

Let’s Speed up operations by giving emacs garbage collection a more modern threshold.

(setq gc-cons-threshold 20000000) ; ~20MB

Load package support

(require 'package)
(setq package-enable-at-startup nil)

Define package repositories

(setq package-archives
      '(("gnu"          . "")
        ("melpa"        . "")
        ("melpa-stable" . "")))

Pin packages

The lastest packages are nice, but sometimes you want to stick with stable releases. Package will always install the lastest packages available unless a package is pinned to a repository.

(setq package-pinned-packages
        ;; (cider            . "melpa-stable")
        ;; (clj-refactor     . "melpa-stable")
        ;; (flycheck-clojure . "melpa-stable")
        ;; (use-package      . "melpa-stable")

Initialize package


Bootstrap use-package

use-package is great for lazy-loading packages efficiently.

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

  (require 'use-package))

(setq use-package-always-ensure t)

(use-package diminish) ; no longer included with use-package by default

;;; example use-package usage
;; (use-package foo
;;   :ensure t
;;   :defer t
;;   :if (display-graphic-p)
;;   :commands (foo-all foo-super)
;;   :mode "\\.mode\\'"
;;   :diminish "f"
;;   :init
;;   (setq foo-variable t)
;;   (evil-leader/set-key "fs" #'foo-super)
;;   :config
;;   (foo-mode 1))

Show package load time

Here’s where we report how long it took to load all installed packages to the Messages buffer.

;;; show package load time
(let ((elapsed (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
  (message "Loaded packages in %.3fs" elapsed))

Package specific configuration

This section documents all loaded packages and their configuration.

evil-mode settings

Emacs is great and has many amazing features, modal editing is not one of them. I like to edit text at the speed of thought, so evil-mode gives me a complete Vim implementation within Emacs.

code auto-completion settings

For code completeion I’ve moved from auto-complete to company-mode since it is under active development and has great support in many modes.

I am giving up doc popups in some modes by making this move, but am admitting that more often than not I’m not using auto-complete to read docs, and instead will ensure I have a universal keybind that calls a mode’s doc lookup.

custom mode-line configuration

Packages like spaceline are great, but can add a lot of overhead, and also limit you. I’ve set up my own custom modeline that provides a format that looks like this:
