This is the second version of my emacs-rails-kit, the first was just a slightly modified emacs-starter-kit . Version 2 is a rebuild from scratch. It takes bits and pieces from configurations assembled by a number of different hackers’ (al3x topfunky technomancy defunkt crnixon) whom I admire.
This version can provide a base emacs configuration suitable for the average rails programmer to clone/fork and start using immediately.
No elpa packages are pre-installed, but I’ve included the elpa package library to allow for easier personal customization.
Instructions and Setup
- clone or fork from my github repository
- make a symlink to the root of the cloned repository to .emacs.d under your home directory
- initialize and update the git submodules
- start emacs!
- optionally run recomple-init to byte-compile all the list files, which will make things go faster
$ git clone git://github.com/mig/emacs-rails-kit.git ~/Library/emacs-rails-kit $ ln -s ~/Library/emacs-rails-kit ~/.emacs.d $ cd ~/.emacs.d $ git submodule init $ git submodule update
If you are running this under OS X, add these lines to sync the kill ring with the clipboard:
(global-set-key (kbd "C-w") 'clipboard-kill-region) (global-set-key (kbd "M-w") 'clipboard-kill-ring-save) (global-set-key (kbd "C-y") 'clipboard-yank)
You can run both Test::Unit (shoulda context included) and RSpec tests with M-r within the test file. This will open a new buffer and run the test file. This buffer is now auto-clearing.
