Small & useful Emacs functions.
I like to have word completion near the homeline, and TAB feels natural to me. But I like to have automatic indentation bound to TAB as well. Fortunately, most of the time it is easy to decide which one I need. Smart Tab does that for me.
I like to have a key bound to compile, and this key should do the right thing:
if there is a Makefile in the current dir or upward, use
make, else use
rake. Or, if I\'m in an elisp file, just run elk tests. And saving the current
buffer before doing anything avoids most
Flymake for Lua...
I use this to quickly create new posts, automatically using the current date.
