Yes, it does.
Yeah, just wanted to say that. Okay, maybe I should elaborate "a little" (...) Some time ago (more than four years I see now...) I got the idea to combine the power of Emacs and the excellent Emacs package Anything (as it was...

+Katherine Cox-Buday and others:

I just committed a restructured and cleaned up version of this (for Windows) at

https://github.com/mathiasdahl/emacs-launcher

More changes will come in the coming days. It works but use at your own risk.

A little article about how to implement syntactic fontification for a major mode.

I plan to make this part of an article series about implementing fontification in general, see http://www.lunaryorn.com/2014/03/12/font-locking-in-emacs.html

Please enjoy, and give feedback!

+Ted Zlatanov We plan that, but it's going to take time.  I'll probably write an article about it, but don't expect it too soon.

Many of Emacs's built-in Lisp functions reside in subr.el (subr is short for subroutine). subr-x.el == extension of subr.el.

+bin chen ah, good point. I'm already using evel-leader anyway. It could certainly be used to paper-over the alt key. Thanks!

+Sebastian Wiesner Looks like I was wrong. I could swear I use to have an elpa package called osx-keys or mac-keys or something similar, but it isn't there anymore. 

Recently, I switched to using a pre-package init system for my emacs. I've been an emacs user for nearly 20 years, but to be honest, had lost interest in keeping up with the modern additions and enhancements to the emacs environment - these days, I just want to use it and get work done and not (as was common 20 years ago) spend the late hours writing elisp tweaks and modes. I still have a lot of my own customizations, but I'm now using a modified version of purcell's emacs.d off github. I tried a few different 'canned' emacs init schemes, but found many of them just didn't quit fit with my preferred way of structuring things. Purcell's is pretty close, so I cloned it, tweaked it to suit me and now use it. I think it is dangerous to just use someone elses canned setup as you will rarely be able to diagnose and fix problems without assistance. However, I think they can be an excellent guide, which is why I maintain my own clone of purcell's repo , where I add my own tweaks and have disabled anything I don't want ot don't yet understand or simply just don't like. 

One of the nice things about this setup is that it works across all the environments I use i.e. Linux and OSX. I have one single setup which works consistently across environments. It includes an init-osx-keys.el file (fairly basic) which works well for me. I only switched to using OSX about 3 months ago after exclusively using Linux since 1993. I was a little concerned how well things would work, especially as there seemed to be so many google hits for issues running emacs under OSX re: key bindings, fullscreen, integration with OSX apps etc. However, I've actually not run into any significant issues yet. A few minor tweaks to the purcell emacs.d clone to address some issues with cut and paste and added a keyboard remapping tool so that OSX home/end etc acted a bit more like I'm use to and allow things like C-e and C-a to work like within emacs for non-emacs apps i.e. apple mail, safari, etc and all is good. 

Might be worthwhile grabbing a copy of purcell's emacs.d repo and 'borrowing with pride' sections which you may find useful. git://githumb.com/purcell/emacs.d.git

Thanks +Sylvain Benner and +Sebastian Wiesner for the clarification. Been using ido for a few months now, and I thought I had it figured out but. Set it up properly uh, better now, and well, continue to like completions displayed vertically. :)

Emacs Org-mode provides the wonderful babel-capability: Including code-blocks in any language directly in org-mode documents using just plain text. In default usage, running such code freezes my emacs until the code is finished, though.

Up to a few weeks ago, I solved this with a custom function, which spawns a new emacs as script runner for the specific code. Now I switched to GNU parallel as a much cleaner solution:

#emacs #orgmode with #Parallel #Babel: http://draketo.de/english/emacs/parallel-babel

Notice that when you "mouseover text" it gives you the command in emacs for the WYSIHYD mode.

Thanks your suggestion.
The training seems to be excessive for me. 
Fingers may become thick.

Thank you giving me great idea.
In order to decrease typing, I often use skelton-insert.
I like this phrase:
 Make It Easy to Reuse.   If it's easy to reuse, people will.

I've tested that and it looks great. In fact, most of the things I have already had turned on, however modeline and fringes i did not know about.

Now, I see with modeline a small issue. The modeline visually divides frames as well. When we do vertical frame division (C-x 3), a nice vertical line appears so it visually divides frames. When we do the same with horizontal (C-x 2), there is no line between two frames, what makes it difficult to distinguish which part of text should belong to which frame. Is there any way how to draw instead of full modeline just a horizontal line?

Isn't auto-indent mode just some 3rd party mode that's totally unrelated to electric-indent-mode?
