I recently tried to install MuMaMo as one of the dependencies for Takafumi Arakaki’s Emacs-based IPython notebook. The instructions on the MuMaMo webpage were as clear as mud and aimed primarily at Windows users. Enters apt-get for Emacs!
My Emacs setup is shared across multiple machines: a synchronized
*.el files, along with my
el-get allows you to share your package installation folder in a similar
fashion. Here are some relevant configuration snippets:
; Everything gets installed into ~/elisp, a folder ; I sync across all my machines (setq el-get-dir "~/elisp/el-get") (setq el-get-install-dir "~/elisp/el-get/el-get") (add-to-list 'load-path el-get-install-dir) ; If el-get is missing, install it automatically (unless (require 'el-get nil t) (url-retrieve "https://raw.github.com/dimitri/el-get/master/el-get-install.el" (lambda (s) (goto-char (point-max)) (eval-print-last-sexp)))) ; Install these packages, and call the specified configuration snippets ; after each load (setq el-get-sources '( (:name ethan-wspace :after (progn (global-ethan-wspace-mode 1) (set-face-background 'ethan-wspace-face "gray95"))) (:name column-marker :after (add-hook 'font-lock-mode-hook (lambda () (interactive) (column-marker-1 80)))) ; Also install these packages, no configuration required (setq my-packages (append '(el-get maxframe markdown-mode ein python) (mapcar 'el-get-source-name el-get-sources) ) ) ; Check packages and install any that are missing (el-get 'sync my-packages)
There are two ways to specify packages to be installed: either include them in
my-packages list, or add them to
el-get-sources, which in addition
allows further customization upon successful loading of the package.
What’s in your stack? Here’s my list of Emacs packages:
Org Mode, Ethan's wspace, Tab Bar, Column Marker, Max Frame, EIN, Python, JS2
Do you know of any other useful packages? Let me know!
