My Emacs config

Inspired by and and others.

If, for some reason I cannot fathom, you want to try out my Emacs configuration, run these commands. First you'll move your existing Emacs configuration out of the way, then you'll clone mine.

$ mv .emacs .emacs.BAK
$ mv .emacs.d .emacs.d.BAK
$ git clone
$ emacs

When you run Emacs it will probably spend a while downloading and installing packages. That's all right. When it's done, kill all of the leftover buffers you don't need. You'll be left with a dark full-screen Emacs that runs like mine does.
