my .emacs file
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am eager to hear from you. I am intentionally leaving things minimal. I'll add better documentation / code based on your input. Right now I don't know what is lacking. Help me by telling me what you did not understand etc. Purpose ------- 1. Help new emacs users have a well configured emacs environment right away. 2. Help new emacs users explore each section, learning in the process. So the file is filled with comments and URLs Steps ----- 1. Install emacs 2. Check out this project using git and copy my-dot-emacs.txt to your home folder (referred to as ~) and call it .emacs 3. Create ~/emacs/ 4. Download the required .el files into ~/emacs/ (listed in the next section) 5. Install required applications (listed in the next section) Install / Download ------------------ [Use your favorite search engine to get the location] Install : git-core, ipython, js2-mode, sbcl, sbcl-doc, sbcl-source, slime Download : magit.el, escreen.el, ipython.el, python-mode.el TODO ==== * There are many paths and references that are specific to my machines. I need to abstract these away.
