EdgeCase Emacs Config

You should give it a try.


This config is built primarily to work on top of the OS X version of Emacs. Be sure to download version 24 or greater.


  1. git clone git://
  2. cd emacs-config
  3. rake
  4. Open emacs with your app launcher of choice. You should see emacs downloading and compiling the defined packages.

We have leveraged Phil Hagelberg's emacs-starter-kit which uses Marmalade for downloading common emacs packages.


Emacs works especially well when wanting user-specific configurations.

Simply place customization files to the folder ~/.emacs.d/<username>. Where <username> is the whoami or logname of the currently logged in user.

  • Any file with a .el extension in that folder will be loaded when running emacs.

We suggest creating your own repository of .el files and symlinking them to the folder ~/.emacs.d/<username>.
