Literate Emacs Configemacs ·
Literate programming is a programming paradigm introduced by Donald Knuth, definition from Wikipedia :
Literate programming is writing out the program logic in a human language with included code snippets and macros.
Emacs’ org-mode makes literate programming extremely easy. A classic way to do this is using org-mode to manage your emacs initialization!
How to do it
Use org-babel to bootstrap.
;; Load up Org Mode and Babel and load the configuration file (setq dotfiles-dir (file-name-directory (or load-file-name (buffer-file-name)))) (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "lisp" (expand-file-name "org" (expand-file-name "src" dotfiles-dir)))) (require 'org-install) (org-babel-load-file (expand-file-name "config.org" dotfiles-dir))
* Melpa default configuration #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (require 'package) (setq package-archives '(("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/") ("melpa" . "http://melpa.org/packages/"))) (package-initialize) #+END_SRC * Use-package #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp (eval-when-compile (require 'use-package)) #+END_SRC
Write your awesome code like this, beautifully
