darkroom-mode.el - Distraction free editing mode
This is a simple Emacs mode that is designed to enforce the user to be
focussed only on what he/she is writing. This mode is optimized for
writing text, but not programming. It will center the current frame on
the screen and select
Lucida Sans Typewriter as the default font
with a font size of 16pt.
Basically the Idea is based on some writing focussed modes for Emacs and of course the gorgeous marketing of iA Writer. Using my patched darkroom-mode I want to show that it is easily possible to achieve the same result with only a single and free plugin for Emacs.
After endless hours of user research we found that this mode is the best and the default settings are the ones to keep. Howver, all the possibilities to configure your editor remain intact.

Best run editors run

.emacs to be able to load darkroom-mode
(add-to-list 'load-path "path-to-where-you-put-darkroom-mode") (require 'darkroom-mode)
darkroom-mode you only have to execute

The mode allows little configuration to adjust the display to the users needs. The most important options are:
(defvar darkroom-mode-face-foreground "Lucida Sans Typewriter" "The foreground color of the default face") (defvar darkroom-mode-face-size 160 "Default font size" ) (defvar darkroom-mode-center-margin 100 Defines the width of the center part in darkroom-mode")
