*Vim is almost 4 times more used than #Emacs   *
Then using emacs makes me...more special?
Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.

Now that you’ve started your journey on the Typography Express by using round double quotes, take a seat and extend that to your apostrophes as well. This snippet binds a round apostrophe to the ' key, but also inserts a pair of single round quotes with a prefix.

GrandUnifiedDebugger

The Grand Unified Debugger, or GUD for short, is an Emacs major mode for debugging. It works on top of command line debuggers. GUD handles interaction with gdb, dbx, xdb, sdb, perldb, jdb, and pdb, by default.

This year I made it my resolution to learn clojure. After reading through the unexpectedly engaging romance that is Clojure for the Brave and True, it was time to boldly venture through the dungeons of 4clojure. Sword in hand, I install 4clojure.el and start hacking, but I felt the interface could use some improvements.

Any Emacs package developer worth their salt knows the difference between a defvar and defcustom. These two comprise the vast majority of variable definitions in Elisp code, but there's a third child, the defconst. While regular variables and customizable variables only really differ when it comes to Emacs' customize system, constants differ in loading logic in a subtle but important way.

How the Emacs Splash-screen Image Came to Be

Most people who have been using Emacs for a long time eventually disable the splash-screen. I am probably the only person who hasn't disabled it.

There's a good reason why I enjoy looking at the image of the gnu leaping over the word "Emacs" every time Emacs starts– I designed that image. Here is the story...

Oh, I had forgotten I made the "Lascaux" cave stone-age versions of the logo. And I didn't know about the postcards. Thanks for that link.

How I've been using Org mode more and more lately to get organized and get things done:
I've been using Emacs Org mode for nearly a year now. For a while I mostly just used it to take and organize notes, but over time I've discovered it's an incredibly useful tool for managing projects and tasks, writing and publishing documents, keeping track of time and todo lists, ...

This page shows a emacs lisp command to change letter case by title convention. For example, “A Tale of Two Cities”, not “A Tale Of Two Cities”. (defun xah-title-case-region-or-line (φp1 φp2) "Title case text between nearest brackets, or current line, or text selection.

I wrote up some notes on my work blog about using Emacs as your editor from IntelliJ IDEA...
As I've mentioned before, I'm gradually working towards my grey-beard badge so for most of my programming I tend to use Emacs. However when I moved into the order-systems team I adopted IntelliJ IDEA, which is our weapon of choice for Java development at Atlassian. This is because while Emacs is ...

You do not have to script that -- just use "emacsclient +LINE:COLUMN FILENAME" syntax (for example http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3139970/open-a-file-at-line-with-filenameline-syntax).

So in JIdea just provide those params as:
+$LineNumber$:$ColumnNumber$ $FileName$

I posted this over in the Org-mode community, but I don't know how much overlap there is between the two communities, and I thought people here might be interested as well.

Today I got acquainted with align commands: http://emacswiki.org/emacs/AlignCommands
Infinite Universe, Infinite Emacs!
Emacs has a few commands that can line up text with respect to whitespace, assignment, columns or regexp specified delimiters. Commands available starting with emacs 22. For version 22 or higher, the following commands are available: align align-current align-entire align-newline-and-indent ...

Expand region is one of those packages that deserves to be built-in. It's so simple and useful it makes Emacs worthwhile all by itself.

Fundamentally, the entire package boils down to a single command, expand-region, which incrementally increases the selected region by semantic units. So deciding where to bind this command is an important decision.

A little over a month ago, I released a package called Names, designed for mitigating Emacs' namespace issue. Before I even had a chance to announced it, it made a bit of a splash on r/emacs, which I've taken to mean that people are interested. I've been holding off on this post until I had a couple of Names-using packages under my belt, so I could actually speak from experience as opposed to expectation, and that's finally the case.

Now that the previous post has leveled the playing field, we go into slightly more advanced debugging features. First we go deeper into Edebug navigation commands, and then we discuss when Edebug just won't do and explain the power of Emacs' built-in debugger.
