  • The char-menu Package | Irreal
    for the character you want In Org mode a lot of these things are available with standard TeX shortcuts or by setting the input method to TeX Still you have to remember the names or shortcuts and it s often clunky to use them With char menu you hit a single shortcut key and you get a menu of the characters to insert The menu is Avy based so it s familiar and easy to use The GitHub page for char menu shows a simple list or characters and a more complex set with multiple levels For my initial configuration I used the complex set minus the Greek letters Here it is use package char menu ensure t bind H s char menu config setq char menu Typography Math Arrows I ll probably modify this based on my usage but it s a good beginning One other feature of the package is that when you have a pair of characters such as quotes char menu will put the point between them If you have highlighted text char menu will wrap the text with the two characters It s a very nice and light weight solution to adding UTF 8 characters to your Emacs buffers This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink Spacemacs Emacs 25 1 Pretest Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs

  • Spacemacs | Irreal
    instead of configuring individual packages groups of functionality are enabled and configured as a whole A layer may involve several packages so you can think of them as capabilities that can be configured without having to worry about the details Sometimes you need to worry about the details and want to tweak a layer s behavior to suit your needs it s Emacs after all and the layer functionality provides this fine control when you need it Of course you can define your own layers in addition to the ones that come predefined with Spacemacs I come from decades of VIM use but when I started using Emacs I didn t feel the need to drag VIM along with me I never even in the beginning used Vile or Evil and I ve been perfectly happy with the standard Emacs bindings Still if you miss modal editing and the VIM bindings you should definitely check out Spacemacs Wiesner s post is a good place to start This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink Presentations With Org Mode The char menu Package Nagora Yeah I don t really get the whole VIM thing I use it when I have to but modal editing is the worst idea in the history of editing and just about tolerable when I first encountered it 35 years ago when it was merely antiquated Now there s just no excuse except that it s what a person is used to and that s not an excuse for anyone else Grant Rettke VIM users have an interesting cognitive model for computer interaction that they rarely share beyond espousing it s utility It is very fun to compare and contrast their mental models for activities in VIM vs our personal configurations of Emacs
