So you think your music player rocks?

Oh yeah? Can it

Installing GIMME

Cloning from Github

First of all, clone GIMME from Github.

git clone git://github.com/konr/GIMME.git

Installing dependencies

Install mechanize, from ruby gems, the ruby bindings for glib2 and, of course, xmms2. On Arch Linux one does simply:

gem install mechanize 
sudo pacman -S ruby-glib2 xmms2

Preparing Emacs.

First of all, you must put GIMME’s files on Emacs’s PATH. If you haven’t set it up on Emacs, here is a code snippet you can use to add all subdirectories under ~/.emacs.d/ to it:

;;;;;;;;;; Path ;; ;;;;;;;;

(require 'cl)

(defun reload-path () (interactive) (let* ((directory
  "~/.emacs.d") (newdirs (lp-subdir-list directory))) (setq
  load-path (remove-duplicates (append load-path
  newdirs) :test #'string=))) (message "Path reloaded!"))

(defconst +lp-ignore-list+ (list "CVS" ".git" ".svn" ".." "."))

(defun lp-subdir-list (base &optional ignore) (unless ignore
  (setq ignore +lp-ignore-list+)) (let ((pending (list base))
  (retval nil)) (while pending (let ((dir (pop pending))) (push
  dir retval) (dolist (f (directory-files dir)) (let ((name
  (concat dir "/" f))) (when (and (not (member f ignore))
  (file-directory-p name)) (push name pending) (push name
  retval)))))) (reverse retval)))

(reload-path)

You must add these lines to your initialization file, which is usually either ~/.emacs or ~/.emacs.d/init.el. If you are new to Emacs and have neither file, it’s advisable to create the latter and keep everything in a single directory. Then, move or link GIMME to that folder with:

ln -s $HOME/Repositories/GIMME ~/.emacs.d/

In the initialization file we were working on, you must tell Emacs to load GIMME, like you’d do with most packages. Add the line

(autoload 'gimme "gimme" "launch GIMME" t)

restart and that’ll be enough to run GIMME.

M-x gimme.

On Emacs, press M-x, alternate notation for Alt-x, to launch the command prompt, and then gimme. At all times, you can press ?, the question mark, to get a list of the currently set keybindings.
