CSS Eldoc Plugin

ATTENTION: I have not finished CSS3 properties yet.

This is css-eldoc, an eldoc-mode plugin for CSS source code.

Eldoc-mode is a MinorMode which shows you, in the echo area, the argument list of the function call you are currently writing. Very handy. By NoahFriedman.

Use for an easy install, or put the css-eldoc somewhere in your load-path.

After aquiring the files, put the following in the your .emacs (turn-on-css-eldoc)


If your less mode's isearch became really slow, add the following code to your .emacs

(defun isearch-forward-noeldoc ()
  "close eldoc temperaily"
  (eldoc-mode -1)
  (eldoc-mode 1))
(add-hook 'less-css-mode-hook (lambda ()
                (local-set-key [remap isearch-forward] 'isearch-forward-noeldoc)))

(defun isearch-backward-noeldoc ()
  "close eldoc temperaily"
  (eldoc-mode -1)
  (eldoc-mode 1))
(add-hook 'less-css-mode-hook (lambda ()
                (local-set-key [remap isearch-backward] 'isearch-backward-noeldoc)))
