* Starter Kit Misc
Things that don't fit anywhere else.
** Sentences
#+source: sentences
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(setq sentence-end-double-space nil)
** Color Themes
The [[][Color Themes]] package provides support for changing, saving,
sharing Emacs color themes. To view and apply color themes available
on your system run =M-x color-theme-select=. See the color theme
website and EmacsWiki pages for more information.
This following loads color-theme so that it is available by default.
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(add-to-list 'load-path
(expand-file-name "color-theme"
(expand-file-name "src" dotfiles-dir)))
(add-to-list 'load-path
(expand-file-name "zenburn-emacs"
(expand-file-name "src" dotfiles-dir)))
(require 'color-theme)
(require 'zenburn)
(eval-after-load "color-theme"
Once you've selected a preferred color theme it can be installed by
adding its function to your initialization. For example
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :tangle no
will load the =railscasts= color theme when Emacs starts.
** Font Size
Set the font size to a bearable one:
#+source: Font
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(set-face-attribute 'default nil :font "Menlo" :height 150)

#+srcname: starter-kit-window-view-stuff

** Nxhtml -- utilities for we development
[[][Nxhtml]] is a large package of utilities for web development and for
embedding multiple major modes in a single buffer.
Nxhtml is not installed in this version of the starter-kit by default,
for information on installing nxhtml see [[][EmacsWiki-Nxhtml]].

*** possible issues/resolutions with flyspell
Most of the solution came from [[][EmacsWiki-FlySpell]]. Here is one
possible fix.
**** Emacs set path to aspell
it's possible aspell isn't in your path
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :tangle no
(setq exec-path (append exec-path '("/opt/local/bin")))
**** Emacs specify spelling program
- This didn't work at first, possibly because cocoAspell was
building its dictionary. Now it seems to work fine.
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :tangle no
(setq ispell-program-name "aspell"
ispell-dictionary "english"
(let ((default '("[A-Za-z]" "[^A-Za-z]" "[']" nil
("-B" "-d" "english" "--dict-dir"
"/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0")
nil iso-8859-1)))
`((nil ,@default)
("english" ,@default))))
