package-filter.el

Filtering for Emacs package.el.

Obsolete since Emacs 24.4: Users should customize or otherwise modify the new package-pinned-packages variable instead.

The package-filter.el package adds functionality to package.el provided by Emacs to allow creating a whitelist or blacklist of packages for a specific repository. This allows for disabling all packages from a specific repository and only enabling certain packages, or simply blacklist a certain subset of packages.

Configuring

By default there are two variables that can be customized to specify which packages will be enabled (whitelist packages only) or excluded (blacklist of packages)

  • package-archive-enable-alist : Optional Alist of enabled packages used by package-filter. The format is (ARCHIVE . PACKAGE ...), where ARCHIVE is a string matching an archive name in package-archives, PACKAGE is a symbol of a package in ARCHIVE to enable. If no ARCHIVE exists in the alist, all packages are enabled.

    If no ARCHIVE exists in the alist, all packages are enabled.

  • package-archive-exclude-alist : Alist of packages excluded by package-filter. The format is (ARCHIVE . PACKAGE ...), where ARCHIVE is a string matching an archive name in package-archives, PACKAGE is a symbol of a package in that archive to exclude. Any specified package is excluded regardless of the value of package-archive-enable-alist

    If a particular ARCHIVE has an entry in package-archive-enable-alist then only packages
