Emacs Powerline

This is a fork of powerline.el from http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/powerline.el, which is ultimately inspired by vim-powerline.

Installation

There are a number of ways to do this correctly. If you're comfortable with doing it your own way, please skip this section. If not, this is the recommended and tested way that I got it working.

$ cd ~/.emacs.d/vendor
$ git clone git://github.com/jonathanchu/emacs-powerline.git

In your Emacs config:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/vendor/emacs-powerline")
(require 'powerline)

Note: Depending on what distribution of Emacs you're using, you might have to do:

(require 'cl)

Customization

You can choose between different arrow shapes:

(setq powerline-arrow-shape 'arrow)   ;; the default
(setq powerline-arrow-shape 'curve)   ;; give your mode-line curves
(setq powerline-arrow-shape 'arrow14) ;; best for small fonts

You can change the mode-line color using the standard method:

(custom-set-faces
 '(mode-line ((t (:foreground "#030303" :background "#bdbdbd" :box nil))))
 '(mode-line-inactive ((t (:foreground "#f9f9f9" :background "#666666" :box nil)))))

Additionally, you can modify directly in powerline.el:

(setq powerline-color1 "grey22")
(setq powerline-color2 "grey40")

Change the :foreground, :background, powerline-color1, powerline-color2 to whatever you wish.
