- I'm using Vim key binding. Please see "Tips" section for restoring the Emacs key binding.
- People in Mainland China may need goagent to download packages from ELPA. Run command "http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8087 emacs -nw" after starting goagent server.
I base my emacs.d on Steve Purcell's emacs.d and synchronize from his once a month.
To install, clone this repo to ~/.emacs.d, i.e. ensure that the 'init.el' contained in this repo ends up at ~/.emacs.d/init.el and old ~/.emacs does NOT exist.
I will support all the languages a desktop developer may use, like C++, Java, Lua, Objective-C etc.
- git or subversion is NOT needed. I removed all the 'git submodule update' stuff.
- enhance major/minor modes for C/C++ developers
- optimized for cross-platform C++ development with CMake and wxWidgets
- emacs-w3m (console browser)
- eim (Chinese pinyin input method)
- org2blog (write wordpress blog with org-mode)
- make the configuration work under Linux and Cygwin
- The configuration will work with Emacs version >=24
- evil-mode and its plugins (Vim key binding)
- yasnippet and my customized snippets
Third party CLI tools Emacs uses
Purcell won't list all the 3rd party tools this configuration dependent on. I will try to list them HERE,
- w3m (web browser in console)
- jsl (jslint) Install node.js. Then "sudo npm install -g jslint".
- aspell, and dictionary (aspell-en, for example)
- sbcl (lisp environment)
- tidy (html tidy program)
- csslint (install node.js, then
npm install -g csslint
- zip and unzip export org to odt
- clang intellisense of C++ code need clang (http://clang.llvm.org)
- ctags (http://ctags.sourceforge.net) You use ctags to navigate the code.
- GNU Global (http://www.gnu.org/software/global) You use this tool to navigate the C/C++/Java/Objective-C code.
- pyflakes You need pyflakes for real time python syntax check (flymake-python)
Install pip, then
pip install pyflakes, but on cygwin you need install
setuptool in order to install pip.
- ditaa, grapviz and planetuml to convert ascii art to diagram and uml.
To install the tools, I suggest using,
- apt-cyg at Cygwin
- homebrew at OS X
- any package manager at Linux
Please note it's totally fine you don't install these CLI tools. Emacs won't crash. ;)
If you find any bug, please file an issue on the github project: https://github.com/redguardtoo/emacs.d
- by default EVIL (Vim emulation in Emacs) is used. You can comment out line containing "(require 'init-evil)" in init.el to unload it.
- Some package cannot be downloaded automatically because of network problem.
You need manually
M-x list-packagesand install it.
- I downgraded the yasnippet to an older version because latest yasnippet is not compatible with auto-complete.
- You can speed up the start up by NOT loading some heavy weight
components like evil or yasnippet. All you need to do is add below
code into ~/.bashrc:
alias e=emacs -q --no-splash --eval="(setq light-weight-emacs t)" -l "$HOME/.emacs.d/init.el"
My personal custom.el
