Emacs braindump from John Wiegley =)

| emacs

I’m going to edit and post my Skype chat with John Wiegley, but here are some quick notes:

  • Read Emacswiki and go through the package lists to find cool stuff
  • Learn the Emacs way of doing things (keybindings, etc.)
  • paredit
  • redshank
  • helm
  • ace-jump
  • color-moccur
  • use-package
  • async?

Looks like Camtasia Studio 8 grabbed the video just fine, so I’ll work on editing it tomorrow. Whee! I totally have to chat with other Emacs geeks about their config and their projects – it’s such a different experience from just reading people’s configuration files or chatting on IRC…
