Bring your editing experience to the next level with context-based actions for emacs
elcontext is available on MELPA. Add the MELPA repositories with the following code in your init file:
(require 'package) (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/") t) (package-initialize)
elcontext by running:
M-x package-install RET elcontext RET
Add the following code to your init file to continuously check for valid contexts:
(require 'elcontext) (elcontext-global-mode)
Alternatively if you are using use-package you can use the following configuration:
(use-package elcontext :ensure t :config (elcontext-global-mode))
M-x elcontext for on overview of all contexts. Within this overview several hydras will guide through the API, press
? to open the help hydra.
Contexts can consist of a
- location (only for macOS),
- and action.
If a part of a context is omitted this part is always valid e.g. no location means anywhere, no time means anytime. Each command is triggered once a day.
Work / Home development environment
Start all work applications when you're in the office, stop them when you're home (and start others). This was the original reason to create
elcontext. It integrates well with prodigy. You can define all applications you need at work or home as prodigy-services.
If your using
elcontext I am happy to hear about your use cases!
