My emacs settings
An ever-changing set of emacs settings. Micro-optimizations are super fun. These are used in the Emacs Rocks screencasts.
To grab all the dependencies, either:
git clone git://github.com/magnars/.emacs.d.git cd .emacs.d git submodule init git submodule update
or on git v1.6.5 or later:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/magnars/.emacs.d.git
I don't keep magit in my .emacs.d. To install magit, do
magit and install it there.
Install emacs on mac
I use Cocoa Emacs, installed like this:
brew install emacs --cocoa --use-git-head --HEAD
