A simple global minor mode for Emacs. It runs recompile (or a customisable function) after saving a buffer, and indicates success or failure in the mode line. The idea is to use M-x compile to run tests, and use this mode for test-driven development.

  • Write a test and save the file
  • Watch the test fail as the status line indicator turns red
  • Write code and save the file until the status line turns green
  • Repeat
