Emacs Dev Kit
The Emacs Dev Kit is a set of customizations and extensions for the latest GNU Emacs (currently 23.2) designed to improve the development experience on Emacs and make it more competitive to the modern IDEs. Sure, I know that Emacs is the greatest, but many people don't and I hope this powerful setup will make believers out of them as well.
I have borrowed the idea from technomancy's Emacs Starter Kit, but pushed it to the next level.
EDK features enhanced support for the following programming languages: * Ruby * Common Lisp/Scheme/Clojure * Perl * Python * Java * Scala * Prolog
I'll try add more stuff along the way
git clone git://github.com/bbatsov/emacs-dev-kit.git path/to/local/repo
ln -s path/to/local/repo ~/.emacs.d
Nothing fancy here. Just start Emacs as usual. Personally I run Emacs in daemon mode:
Afterwards I connect to the server with either a terminal or a GUI client like this:
The proper LaTeX support depends on Auctex being installed. You won't get any errors without auctex, though. Just keep in mind you have to install it manually if you're planning of doing some serious LaTeX editing.
