Is there a way to install a list of packages? I'm thinking about writing a function to do that. But I'm a newbie and I need to learn a lot about lisp.

Any ideas and pointers are welcome.

Kind regards
Bernhard

Just some silly light-hearted stuff for your Emacs.
A couple of years ago I have discovered this silly definition of the word Yegge on Urban Dictionary. For those who don't know Steve Yegge is a software developer, a former Google employee, and an author of his blog Stevey's Blog Rants. So the UD definition of "Yegge" goes as following: ...

For those of you who like GoLang there's a new version [1] of the emacs-n-go development container, now including a script for having the GoConvey continuous-testing server up and running.

Any thoughts are more than welcome, thx!

Questions  - 
 
Was wondering if there were any projects to change how key-bindings work in Emacs.  Currently Emacs has modes set key-bindings directly.  This can often conflict with different modes and user settings.  It would be more elegant if keys were mapped to a set of relation tables.  Modes would set bindings to relational keys.  The user could modify how the relational keys mapped to keyboard keys by modifying these tables interactively.  The user could also specify how fall-back would work when conflicts arise at a global rather than just mode specific level; if C-M-e is taken, then use C-S-e for example.  User set keys could take precedence over mode set keys, or whatever the user wants, rather than the current method of last code executed sets the binding.  Currently using bind-key.el, which simply adds a nice interface to the current method; and keyboard-translate, which is not as abstract as what I propose, being a static keyboard-character to keyboard-character translation table.

Thanks for the links, but my thinking is more along the lines of changing how functions such as define-key work, where the second argument is a lookup table key rather than a key binding.  Obviously this isn't something that can change easily.  Just an open idea about how to make Emacs more customizable.

I'm not sure this is possible, but here we go: I want to edit my jekyll blog posts in org-mode. I've been through the links on orgmode.com about doing this, but there's still something missing about it for me.

Jekyll posts and pages begin with YAML frontmatter. This is placed in the .org file with #+BEGIN_HTML / #+END_HTML guards. That limits me to sub-editing that section (with C-c ') in html-mode. I can't switch to yaml-mode and back to html-mode to edit it as YAML, though, as it somehow loses context and can't switch out of the sub-edit mode.

Is there some way to do what I wish, i.e. edit the frontmatter in YAML mode?

M-x finder-list-keywords to see keywords in emacs package.
only these are supposed to be valid keywords in the keyword field of package's header.

is there any activity to broaden or change this?

correction: actually, the gnu info doc says it should contain at least one of those.
