This package allows to shorten major mode names using a set of user-defined rules.
If you would like to install the package manually, download or clone it and
put on Emacs'
load-path. Then you can require it in your init file like
It's available via MELPA, so you can just M-x package-install RET cyphejor RET.
First you need to set value of the variable
cyphejor-rules. This variable
contains rules that the package uses to generate new names for major modes
from their symbol names (values of
cyphejor-rules should be a list. Every element of the list should
have the following form:
(string replacement &rest parameters)
string is a “word” in major mode symbol name,
another string to be used instead,
parameters is a list that may be empty
but may have the following keywords in it as well:
:prefix—put it in the beginning of result string
:postfix—put it in the end of result string
Apart from elements of the form described above the following keywords are allowed (they influence the algorithm in general):
:downcase—replace words that are not specified explicitly with their first letter downcased
:upcase—replace words that are not specified explicitly with their first letter upcased
If nothing is specified, a word will be used unchanged, separated from other words with spaces if necessary.
Example of a setup:
(setq cyphejor-rules '(:upcase ("bookmark" "→") ("buffer" "β") ("diff" "Δ") ("dired" "δ") ("emacs" "ε") ("inferior" "i" :prefix) ("interaction" "i" :prefix) ("interactive" "i" :prefix) ("lisp" "λ" :postfix) ("menu" "▤" :postfix) ("mode" "") ("package" "↓") ("python" "π") ("shell" "sh" :postfix) ("text" "ξ") ("wdired" "↯δ")))
Next, just enable
cyphejor-mode in your configuration file:
Access the customization interface via M-x customize-group cyphejor RET.
