Emacs, Final Day!

Unlike #100DaysOfCode, I am not quite giving up on Emacs. Rather that it has turned out to be a habit that has fit in, quite well, and I don’t need this accountability any more. I use it for most of my prose (not code, yet.) This post, is in fact, written in Emacs :) I have not gained any modicum of knowledge by any means. But I have enough muscle memory and immersion, to make sure I will continue using Emacs for most writing I do....

Emacs, Day 02

Had an extremely busy day with studies today, so could not spend time learning much Emacs. Decided to do a little bit of plucking the low hanging fruit and customising Emacs a bit to my liking. I created an init.el file in the emacs.d folder in my home directory, to add all my custom stuff into. Adding Package Managers Yesterday, I had learnt, that I could install additional functionality by downloading extra Emacs packages from the GNU repo at ELPA....

Emacs, Day 01

Slowly making my way through the Mastering Emacs book. Things I did / learnt today … Learnt that if I want to run Emacs all over the place (like I do), then the best thing to do is to have Emacs, running as a daemon in the background. So I did that via the handy systemd instructions, on this page. And that Emacs has a kitchen sink’s worth of commands. And that Emacs commands are like playing chords on the guitar or piano....

Premature end to a Hundred Days of Code. Welcome to A Month of Emacs

Life is really kicking my butt right now. And the 12th studies are not making it any easier. So am temporarily giving up on A Hundred Days of Code, again. Hopefully, I will have the time to give Python, in a month. In the meanwhile, with the limited time I do have, I’d like to learn me some Emacs. Will write about it everyday.
