A few cool Emacs posts have flown across my radar, so I’m noting them here for that time in the future when I have time to play with them.
- Get unicode glyphs to show properly. (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
- Creating slides with org-mode and Reveal.js. Finally, a sane way to create a presentation :)
- Anzu: Improves incremental search. Anzu shows the number of matches found, and how many matches remain in the document.
- Emacs as a Django IDE: I tried this out briefly, but didn’t end up sticking with it. It seemed too heavyweight. I’m probably just too used to my own workflow. I still think it’s an interesting idea and would like to try it again sometime.
- Travel back and forth in git history:
I’m addicted to magit mode, to the point that the
only git command I use manually nowadays is
git clone. I do everything else in magit. Magit has a
magit-blame-modewhich shows when each line in a file was changed and by whom.
git-timemachineseems to take that a step further by visiting each revision, one by one. I can think of a few times where that would have been useful.
- Search StackOverflow from inside Emacs: Enough said.
- Emacs RSS client: Still using NewsBlur, but totally miss Google Reader. Maybe I need to try this one out.
- Sacha Chua’s minicourse on Elisp: Have to read through this someday!
