My Emacs Config

"Emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish." -Neal Stephenson, "In the Beginning was the Command Line"

"Show me your ~/.emacs and I will tell you who you are." -Bogdan Maryniuk

"Emacs is like a laser guided missile. It only has to be slightly mis-configured to ruin your whole day." -Sean McGrathi

"While any text editor can save your files, only Emacs can save your soul." -Per Abrahamseni

"Lisp isn't a language, it's a building material." - Alan Kay

"The reasonable man adapts himself to Emacs; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt Emacs to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." - G.B. Shaw


Using el-get, so everything should just magically download itself on first launch. Lots of plugins, so expect it to take some time, and probably crash once or twice


sudo apt-get install texi2html texinfo python global

ruby + gem install fuzzy_file_finder

lein plugin install swank-clojure 1.3.3

lein plugin install clj-stacktrace 0.2.3

to install rtags, clone gaizkas fork: git clone && sudo rtags/

it depends on a ~/.secrets.el file being there. This is a good place to put passwords or other sensitive information required for plugins, but that you don't want sitting on public github.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
