;;; Commentary:
;; By default automatically inserts closing delimiter for {[('"
;; Additionally when in a GString typing a $ will insert { } and place
;; cursor between the braces. All these can be turned on or off
;; individually in the customization window for groovy-electric
;; Usage:
;; 0) copy groovy-electric.el into directory where emacs can find it.
;; 1) modify your startup file (.emacs or whatever) by adding
;; following lines to load and enable the mode when groovy-mode loads
;; (add-hook 'groovy-mode-hook
;; '(lambda ()
;; (require 'groovy-electric)
;; (groovy-electric-mode)))
;; or add this to your init file
;; (require 'groovy-electric)
;; note that you need to have font lock enabled beforehand.
;; 2) toggle Groovy Electric Mode on/off with groovy-electric-mode.
