1. Introduction
Multi Web Mode is a minor mode which makes web editing in Emacs
much easier.
Basically what it does is select the appropriate major mode
automatically when you move the point and also calculates the
correct indentation of chunks according to the indentation of the
most relevant major mode.
Currently it is focused to work on buffers which contain html, css,
javascript and/or php, but adding other modes is really simple: you
just need to add your own mode to the `mweb-tags'. You can do that
by using M-x customize-group RET multi-web-mode and looking for the
`mweb-tags' variable.
All third packages were removed from the project repo (they were
included with mweb previously), mainly because it is difficult to
track new versions for everything and because it favored the user
laziness to check the basic configuration :).
The last multi-web-mode release which contained all packages was
0.2.1. It is still available from here:
2. Requirements
You don't need any special libraries to run this package. Just the
ones you want to integrate to it.
Regarding the version of Emacs, this package was tested successfully
with >= 23.0.60.
3. Installation
To install Multi Web Mode you'll need to do something like this in
your .emacs:
(require 'multi-web-mode)
(setq mweb-default-major-mode 'html-mode)
(setq mweb-tags '((php-mode "<\\?php\\|<\\? \\|<\\?=" "\\?>")
(js-mode "<script +\\(type=\"text/javascript\"\\|language=\"javascript\"\\)[^>]*>" "</script>")
(css-mode "<style +type=\"text/css\"[^>]*>" "</style>")))
(setq mweb-filename-extensions '("php" "htm" "html" "ctp" "phtml" "php4" "php5"))
(multi-web-global-mode 1)
Restart Emacs or use M-x load-file ~/.emacs.
4. Usage
Multi Web Mode binds the following keystrokes:
M-<f11> : Prompts the user to override the default major mode.
M-<f12> : Prompts the user to override the calculated extra
indentation. Useful when the automatic calculation is not good
