1 # Emacs Starter Kit
2
3 This should provide a saner set of defaults than you get normally with
4 Emacs. It's intended for beginners, but it should provide a reasonable
5 working environment for anyone using Emacs.

7 ## Installation

9 1. Install Emacs

10 Use your package manager if you have one.
11 Otherwise, Mac users should get it [from Apple](http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/unix_open_source/carbonemacspackage.html).
12 Windows users can get it [from GNU](http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/emacs-22.3-bin-i386.zip).

16 If you are missing some autoloads after an update (should manifest
17 itself as "void function: foobar" errors) try deleting your
18 loaddefs.el file and restarting Emacs.

20 If you want to keep your regular ~/.emacs.d in place and just launch a
21 single instance using the starter kit, try the following invocation:
22
23 $ emacs -q -l ~/src/emacs-starter-kit/init.el

25 ## ELPA
26
27 Libraries from ELPA (http://tromey.com/elpa) are preferred when
28 available since dependencies are handled automatically, and the burden
29 to update them is removed from the user.

33 If you know your way around Emacs, please try out the starter kit as a
34 replacement for your regular dotfiles for a while. If there's anything
35 you just can't live without, add it or let me know so I can add it.

37 Also: see the file TODO.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
