Quickly navigate to FIXME notices in Emacs.
(require 'fixmee) (global-fixmee-mode 1) ;; right-click on the word "fixme" in a comment ;; for next-error support: ;; ;; M-x fixmee-view-listing RET
fixme notices in code comments, highlights them,
ranks them by urgency, and lets you navigate to them quickly.
A distinguishing feature of this library is that it tracks the urgency of each notice, allowing the user to jump directly to the most important problems.
Urgency of "fixme" notices is indicated by repetitions of the final
character. For example, one might write
FIXMEEEEEEEEE for an
important issue. The
fixmee-goto-nextmost-urgent command will
navigate to the longest notice first.
To use fixmee-mode, add the following to your
(require 'fixmee) (global-fixmee-mode 1)
Then, open some buffers and right-click on the word "fixme" in a comment
M-x fixmee RET
roll the mouse wheel when hovering over the text "fixm" in the modeline.
execute `fixmee-view-listing` to navigate using `next-error` conventions.
The default key bindings are
To constrain the nextmost/prevmost-urgent commands to the current buffer only, use a universal prefix argument, eg
C-u C-c f
When the smartrep package is installed, the C-c prefix need not
be used for consecutive fixmee-mode keyboard commands. Instead, just
keep pressing f (or whichever key you set in
There is also a context menu and mouse-wheel bindings on the minor-mode lighter in the modeline:
|wheel-down||next by urgency|
|wheel-up||previous by urgency|
|M-wheel-down||next by position|
|M-wheel-up||previous by position|
The following fixme patterns are supported by default:
@@@ XXX ; only this one is case-sensitive todo fixme
