this is a Clojure-friendly emacs config
If you're new to emacs, check out this introductory tutorial!
- Close Emacs.
~/.emacs.dif they exist. (Windows users, your emacs files will probably live in
C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Roaming\. So, for example, you would delete
C:\Users\jason\AppData\Roaming\.emacs.d.) This is where Emacs looks for configuration files, and deleting these files and directories will ensure that you start with a clean slate.
- Download the Emacs
configuration zip file
and unzip it. Its contents should be a folder,
mv path/to/emacs-for-clojure-book1 ~/.emacs.d.
Then open Emacs.
Before upgrading, ensure that your
.emacs.d directory is under
version control so that you can always revert to a known good state.
.emacs.d/init.el, adding these lines after line 12:
(add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa-stable" . "http://stable.melpa.org/packages/") t) (add-to-list 'package-pinned-packages '(cider . "melpa-stable") t)
rm -Rf .emacs.d/elpa/cider-*
Open Emacs. You'll probably see some errors and your theme won't load. That's ok.
In Emacs, run
M-x package-refresh contents.
In Emacs, run
M-x package-install cider.
Close and re-open Emacs.
That should install the latest version. Enjoy!
I've tried to separate everything logically and document the purpose
of every line.
init.el acts as a kind of table of
contents. It's a good idea to eventually go through
init.el and the
files under the
customizations directory so that you know exactly
what's going on.
Supporting CSS, HTML, JS, etc.
Emacs has decent support for CSS, HTML, JS, and many other file types out of the box, but if you want better support, then have a look at my personal emacs config's init.el. It's meant to read as a table of contents. The emacs.d as a whole adds the following:
- Customizes js-mode and html editing
- Sets indentation level to 2 spaces for JS
- enables subword-mode so that M-f and M-b break on capitalization changes
tageditto give you paredit-like functionality when editing html
- adds support for coffee mode
- Uses enh-ruby-mode for ruby editing. enh-ruby-mode is a little nicer than the built-in ruby-mode, in my opinion.
- Associates many filenames and extensions with enh-ruby-mode (.rb, .rake, Rakefile, etc)
- Adds keybindings for running specs
- Adds support for YAML and SCSS using the yaml-mode and scss-mode packages
In general, if you want to add support for a language then you should be able to find good instructions for it through Google. Most of the time, you'll just need to install the "x-lang-mode" package for it.
