Rock Your Emacs, LibrePlanet March 2015

Do you love Emacs, but have never understood the strange code with lots of brackets? You're missing out on one of the great joys of Emacs — customising it to work exactly the way you want. It turns out that Emacs is little more than an interpreter for Lisp code interpreter, and once you know a little Emacs Lisp, almost anything is possible.

After attending this tutorial, you will know how to:

  • make persistent customisations to your Emacs
  • read basic Emacs Lisp code
  • modify Emacs Lisp code as well as writing your own
  • customise behaviour for distinct modes
  • bind your favourite commands to keys
  • answer your own questions with the amazing documentation system
  • use built-in Emacs Lisp development tools like the debugger
  • write your own reusable modules for Emacs customisations

This workshop will be enjoyed most if you already have a little programming experience.
