Lee's Emacs settings file

Table of Contents


This file is used by org-mode to load my personal emacs configuration file. The latest version of this file is always at https://github.com/dakrone/dakrone-dotfiles

This file was last exported: 2015-07-09 16:22

It can be loaded by putting the following in your .emacs.d/init.el:

  ;; Keep track of loading time
  (defconst emacs-start-time (current-time))
  ;; initalize all ELPA packages
  (require 'package)

  (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/"))
  (setq package-enable-at-startup nil)
  (let ((elapsed (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
    (message "Loaded packages in %.3fs" elapsed))

  ;; Dvorak nicety, regardless of loading settings
  (define-key key-translation-map "\C-t" "\C-x")
  ;; Load use-package, used for loading packages
  (require 'use-package)

  ;; keep customize settings in their own file
  (setq custom-file "~/.emacs.d/custom.el")
  (when (file-exists-p custom-file)
    (load custom-file))

  (require 'org)
   (expand-file-name "settings.org"

  ;; Message how long it took to load everything (minus packages)
  (let ((elapsed (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
    (message "Loading settings...done (%.3fs)" elapsed))

Or, you can manually tangle the file and use this alternative instead:

  ;; Keep track of loading time
  (defconst emacs-start-time (current-time))
  ;; initalize all ELPA packages
  (require 'package)

  (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/"))
  ;; for wanderlust
  (add-to-list 'package-archives '("e6h" . "http://www.e6h.org/packages/"))
  (setq package-enable-at-startup nil)
  (let ((elapsed (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
    (message "Loaded packages in %.3fs" elapsed))

  ;; Dvorak nicety, regardless of loading settings
  (define-key key-translation-map "\C-t" "\C-x")
  ;; Load use-package, used for loading packages
  (require 'use-package)

  ;; keep customize settings in their own file
  (setq custom-file "~/.emacs.d/custom.el")
  (when (file-exists-p custom-file)
    (load custom-file))

  (load "~/.emacs.d/settings.el")

  ;; Message how long it took to load everything (minus packages)
  (let ((elapsed (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
    (message "Loading settings...done (%.3fs)" elapsed))

A note about keyboard shortcuts

There are a lot (like, a lot) of keyboard shortcuts in this configuration, and they aren't all collected in one place. So I thought I should collect the most common of them into a single place so anyone looking at this can get an idea of what I use the most. I borrowed the idea from a different configuration I saw, when I thought it was useful for seeing how people bound things.

This doesn't include stuff that I haven't really rebound, like C-x C-f, which just calls find-file, though there may be a few sprinkled in there. This list is in no way exhaustive.

Shortcut What it does Usage frequency
C-c a SPC open my custom agenda view Every time I start emacs
C-x m open eshell Every time I start emacs
C-x C-r helm-mini Very
C-x b helm-mini Very
C-x f helm-projectile Very
C-c b switch between org-mode buffers Very
M-g M-g open Magit Very
C-x C-i open helm's semantic imenu Very
C-c n cleanup buffer (reindent, clean whitespace) Often
C-x C-j open dired folder for current file Often
C-M-n scroll half a page down Often
C-M-p scroll half a page up Often
M-i open helm-swoop Often
<F11> prompt for recent headlines to clock into Often
<F12> clock out of current task Often
M-g . helm-grep, with C-u prefix, rgrep Sometimes
C-c p s switch projectile projecs Sometimes
C-h b see the current bindings (helm-descbinds) Sometimes
C-h a look through all emacs vars, functions, faces (helm-apropos) Sometimes
C-h t see the current time in different locations (helm-world-time) Sometimes
C-c c open capture template for capturing org agenda things Sometimes
C-x M-b open a list of my file/buffer bookmarks (helm-bookmarks) Sometimes
C-c d look up something in the Elasticsearch documentation Sometimes
C-c u search for the last URL and browse to it with system browser Sometimes
C-x 4 t transpose the current buffers Rarely
C-h e pop up the *Messages* buffer Rarely
C-x RET open shell (zsh) Rarely

Packages that need to be installed

This is code that installs packages before any config is loaded, since a lot of things add hooks that don't work if packages aren't installed.

(defvar packages-refreshed? nil)

(dolist (pack my/install-packages)
  (unless (package-installed-p pack)
    (unless packages-refreshed?
      (setq packages-refreshed? t))
    (package-install pack)))

;; Load use-package, used for loading packages everywhere else
(require 'use-package)
;; Set to t to debug package loading
(setq use-package-verbose nil)

Basics and settings used everywhere

Mostly settings that don't fit in elsewhere, so they end up here. However, this does include settings that aren't part of packages and need to configure Emacs' built-in packages.

General settings

Turn on debugging, it will be turned off at the end. In case something happens during loading that breaks something, it's nice to have a debug information.

(setq debug-on-error t)
(setq debug-on-quit t)

First, let's determine whether I'm going to be using a dark theme, or a light theme. I set a var to either 'light or 'dark depending on whatever I'm in the mood for. This is used later on for the modeline theme, as well as the general theme for things.

;;(defvar my/background 'light)
(defvar my/background 'dark)

Now some personal information about me:

(setq user-full-name "Lee Hinman"
      user-mail-address "matthew.hinman@gmail.com")

Always, always, prefer UTF-8, anything else is insanity

(prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8)
(set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8)
(setq default-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8)

Turn on syntax highlighting for all buffers:

(global-font-lock-mode t)

We don't really need to garbage collect as frequently as Emacs would like to by default, so set the threshold up higher:

(setq gc-cons-threshold (* 100 1024 1024)) ;; 100 mb
;; Allow font-lock-mode to do background parsing
(setq jit-lock-stealth-time 1
      ;; jit-lock-stealth-load 200
      jit-lock-chunk-size 1000
      jit-lock-defer-time 0.05)

line-number-mode displays the current line number in the mode line, however it stops doing that in buffers when encountering at least one overly long line and displays two question marks instead. This is pretty unhelpful, the only workaround I've been able to find was to increase line-number-display-width to a substantially higher value.

(setq line-number-display-limit-width 10000)

Make gnutls a bit safer

(setq gnutls-min-prime-bits 4096)

Fix some things for scrolling a bit better

(setq scroll-conservatively 10000
      scroll-preserve-screen-position t)

Echo commands I haven't finished quicker than the default of 1 second:

(setq echo-keystrokes 0.4)

Don't warn me about large files unless they're at least 25mb:

(setq large-file-warning-threshold (* 25 1024 1024))

If you change buffer, or focus, disable the current buffer's mark:

(transient-mark-mode 1)

Don't indicate empty lines or the end of a buffer with visual marks (the lines are cleaned up automatically anyway)

(setq-default indicate-empty-lines nil)
(setq-default indicate-buffer-boundaries nil)

Turn off all kinds of modes, I don't need the menu bar, or the tool bar:

(when (functionp 'menu-bar-mode)
  (menu-bar-mode -1))
(when (functionp 'set-scroll-bar-mode)
  (set-scroll-bar-mode 'nil))
(when (functionp 'mouse-wheel-mode)
  (mouse-wheel-mode -1))
(when (functionp 'tooltip-mode)
  (tooltip-mode -1))
(when (functionp 'tool-bar-mode)
  (tool-bar-mode -1))
(when (functionp 'blink-cursor-mode)
  (blink-cursor-mode -1))

Don't beep. Just don't. Also, don't show the startup message, I know Emacs is starting.

(setq ring-bell-function (lambda ()))
(setq inhibit-startup-message t
      initial-major-mode 'fundamental-mode)

Why would you not want to know lines/columns in your mode-line?

(line-number-mode 1)
(column-number-mode 1)

Ignore case when using completion for file names:

(setq read-file-name-completion-ignore-case t)

Nobody likes to have to type "yes" to questions, so change it to just hitting the y key to confirm:

(defalias 'yes-or-no-p 'y-or-n-p)

Confirm before killing emacs, but only on graphical sessions

(when (window-system)
  (setq confirm-kill-emacs 'yes-or-no-p))

It's much easier to move around lines based on how they are displayed, rather than the actual line. This helps a ton with long log file lines that may be wrapped:

(setq line-move-visual t)

Hide the mouse while typing:

(setq make-pointer-invisible t)

Set up the fill-column to 80 characters and set tab width to 2

(setq-default fill-column 80)
(setq-default default-tab-width 2)
(setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil)

Fix some weird color escape sequences

(setq system-uses-terminfo nil)

Resolve symlinks:

(setq-default find-file-visit-truename t)

Require a newline at the end of files:

(setq require-final-newline t)

Uniquify buffers, using angle brackets, so you get foo and foo<2>:

(use-package uniquify
  (setq uniquify-buffer-name-style 'post-forward-angle-brackets))

Search (and search/replace) using regex by default, since that's usually what I want to do:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-s") 'isearch-forward-regexp)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-r") 'isearch-backward-regexp)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-%") 'query-replace-regexp)

Single space still ends a sentence:

(setq sentence-end-double-space nil)

Split windows a bit better (don't split horizontally, I have a widescreen :P)

(setq split-height-threshold nil)
(setq split-width-threshold 180)

Make sure auto automatically rescan for imenu changes:

(set-default 'imenu-auto-rescan t)

Seed the random number generator:

(random t)

Switch to unified diffs by default:

(setq diff-switches "-u")

Turn on auto-fill mode in text buffers:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)

(use-package diminish
    (diminish 'auto-fill-function "")))

Set the internal calculator not to go to scientific form quite so quickly:

(setq calc-display-sci-low -5)

Bury the *scratch* buffer, never kill it:

(defadvice kill-buffer (around kill-buffer-around-advice activate)
  (let ((buffer-to-kill (ad-get-arg 0)))
    (if (equal buffer-to-kill "*scratch*")

These are some settings for version control stuff.

Automatically revert file if it's changed on disk:

(global-auto-revert-mode 1)
;; be quiet about reverting files
(setq auto-revert-verbose nil)

Start a server if not running, but a only for text-only:

(use-package server
    (when (not (window-system))
      (if (server-running-p server-name)

GUI-specific thing:

(when (window-system)
  (setenv "EMACS_GUI" "t"))

Prettify all the symbols, if available (an Emacs 24.4 feature):

(when (boundp 'global-prettify-symbols-mode)
  (add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook
            (lambda ()
              (push '("lambda" . ?λ) prettify-symbols-alist)))
  (add-hook 'clojure-mode-hook
            (lambda ()
              (push '("fn" . ?ƒ) prettify-symbols-alist)))
  (global-prettify-symbols-mode +1))

Always prefer to load newer files, instead of giving precedence to the .elc files.

(setq load-prefer-newer t)

Turn on winner-mode, which allows me to use C-c LEFT to undo window configuration changes, if so desired.

(use-package winner
  :init (winner-mode 1))

Display the time and load on the modeline

 ;; don't display info about mail
 display-time-mail-function (lambda () nil)
 ;; update every 15 seconds instead of 60 seconds
 display-time-interval 15)
(display-time-mode 1)

Quit as fast as possible with kill -USR1 <pid>

(defun my/quit-emacs-unconditionally ()
  (my-quit-emacs '(4)))

(define-key special-event-map (kbd "<sigusr1>") #'my/quit-emacs-unconditionally)

OS-specific settings

These are settings that are applied depending on what OS I'm currently running on. On gnu/linux systems, I bind C-M-w to the yank-to-x-clipboard method, which uses xsel to yank text. On OSX, I use the pbpaste and pbcopy methods to interact with the system clipboard.

For OSX, use brew install coreutils to get gls which has better support for dired buffers.

(when (eq system-type 'gnu/linux)
  (setq dired-listing-switches "-lFaGh1v --group-directories-first")
  (defun yank-to-x-clipboard ()
    (if (region-active-p)
          (shell-command-on-region (region-beginning) (region-end) "xsel -i -b")
          (message "Yanked region to clipboard!")
      (message "No region active; can't yank to clipboard!")))

  (global-set-key (kbd "C-M-w") 'yank-to-x-clipboard)
  ;; suspend-frame isn't working on Linux?
  (global-unset-key (kbd "C-z"))
  (global-unset-key (kbd "C-x C-z")))

(when (eq system-type 'darwin)
  (setq ns-use-native-fullscreen nil)
  ;; brew install coreutils
  (if (executable-find "gls")
        (setq insert-directory-program "gls")
        (setq dired-listing-switches "-lFaGh1v --group-directories-first"))
    (setq dired-listing-switches "-ahlF"))
  (defun copy-from-osx ()
    "Handle copy/paste intelligently on osx."
    (let ((pbpaste (purecopy "/usr/bin/pbpaste")))
      (if (and (eq system-type 'darwin)
               (file-exists-p pbpaste))
          (let ((tramp-mode nil)
                (default-directory "~"))
            (shell-command-to-string pbpaste)))))

  (defun paste-to-osx (text &optional push)
    (let ((process-connection-type nil))
      (let ((proc (start-process "pbcopy" "*Messages*" "/usr/bin/pbcopy")))
        (process-send-string proc text)
        (process-send-eof proc))))
  (setq interprogram-cut-function 'paste-to-osx
        interprogram-paste-function 'copy-from-osx)

  (defun move-file-to-trash (file)
    "Use `trash' to move FILE to the system trash.
When using Homebrew, install it using \"brew install trash\"."
    (call-process (executable-find "trash")
                  nil 0 nil

  ;; Trackpad scrolling
  (global-set-key [wheel-up] 'previous-line)
  (global-set-key [wheel-down] 'next-line))

Sometimes I use the OSX emacs-mac port: https://github.com/railwaycat/emacs-mac-port , which has a whole other set of issues, so this is special handling of it…

(when (eq window-system 'mac)

  (defun my/max-fullscreen ()
    (set-frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen 'fullboth))

  ;; fullscreen
  (add-hook 'after-init-hook #'my/max-fullscreen)
  ;; use alt as hyper
  (setq mac-option-modifier 'meta)
  ;; use command as meta
  (setq mac-command-modifier 'hyper))

Hahahahaha, you must be joking.

Clipboard settings

Change the clipboard settings to better integrate into Linux:

(setq x-select-enable-clipboard t)
;; Treat clipboard input as UTF-8 string first; compound text next, etc.
(setq x-select-request-type '(UTF8_STRING COMPOUND_TEXT TEXT STRING))

Save whatever's in the current (system) clipboard before replacing it with the Emacs' text.

(setq save-interprogram-paste-before-kill t)

Temporary file settings

Settings for what to do with temporary files.

;; savehist
(setq savehist-additional-variables
      ;; also save my search entries
      '(search-ring regexp-search-ring)
      savehist-file "~/.emacs.d/savehist")
(savehist-mode t)
(setq-default save-place t)

;; delete-auto-save-files
(setq delete-auto-save-files t)
(setq backup-directory-alist
      '(("." . "~/.emacs_backups")))

;; delete old backups silently
(setq delete-old-versions t)

Shell settings

Things for running shells inside of emacs

First, Emacs doesn't handle less well, so use cat instead for the shell pager:

(setenv "PAGER" "cat")
 '(comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-input t)  ; always insert at the bottom
 '(comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output nil) ; always add output at the bottom
 '(comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t) ; scroll to show max possible output
 ;; '(comint-completion-autolist t)     ; show completion list when ambiguous
 '(comint-input-ignoredups t)           ; no duplicates in command history
 '(comint-completion-addsuffix t)       ; insert space/slash after file completion
 '(comint-prompt-read-only nil)         ; if this is t, it breaks shell-command
 '(comint-get-old-input (lambda () "")) ; what to run when i press enter on a
                                        ; line above the current prompt

(defun my/shell-kill-buffer-sentinel (process event)
  (when (memq (process-status process) '(exit signal))

(defun my/kill-process-buffer-on-exit ()
  (set-process-sentinel (get-buffer-process (current-buffer))

(dolist (hook '(ielm-mode-hook term-exec-hook comint-exec-hook))
  (add-hook hook 'my/kill-process-buffer-on-exit))

(defun set-scroll-conservatively ()
  "Add to shell-mode-hook to prevent jump-scrolling on newlines in shell buffers."
  (set (make-local-variable 'scroll-conservatively) 10))

(defadvice comint-previous-matching-input
    (around suppress-history-item-messages activate)
  "Suppress the annoying 'History item : NNN' messages from shell history isearch.
If this isn't enough, try the same thing with
  (let ((old-message (symbol-function 'message)))
        (progn (fset 'message 'ignore) ad-do-it)
      (fset 'message old-message))))

(add-hook 'shell-mode-hook 'set-scroll-conservatively)
;; truncate buffers continuously
(add-hook 'comint-output-filter-functions 'comint-truncate-buffer)
;; interpret and use ansi color codes in shell output windows
(add-hook 'shell-mode-hook 'ansi-color-for-comint-mode-on)

Eshell settings

Eshell is great for one-off shell things, but I use ZSH too much for it to be a full replacement. Regardless, it needs some tweaks in order to be fully useful.

First, a function to be called when eshell-mode is entered

(defun my/setup-eshell ()
  ;; turn off semantic-mode in eshell buffers
  (semantic-mode -1)
  ;; turn off hl-line-mode
  (hl-line-mode -1)
  (define-key eshell-mode-map (kbd "M-l")

Also, after eshell has loaded its options, let's load some other niceties like completion, prompt and term settings:

(use-package eshell
    (defalias 'emacs 'find-file)
    (defalias 'ec 'find-file)
    (setenv "PAGER" "cat")
    (use-package esh-opt
        (use-package em-cmpl)
        (use-package em-prompt)
        (use-package em-term)

        (setq eshell-cmpl-cycle-completions nil
              ;; auto truncate after 12k lines
              eshell-buffer-maximum-lines 12000
              ;; history size
              eshell-history-size 350
              ;; buffer shorthand -> echo foo > #'buffer
              eshell-buffer-shorthand t
              ;; my prompt is easy enough to see
              eshell-highlight-prompt nil
              ;; treat 'echo' like shell echo
              eshell-plain-echo-behavior t)

        ;; Visual commands
        (setq eshell-visual-commands '("vi" "screen" "top" "less" "more" "lynx"
                                       "ncftp" "pine" "tin" "trn" "elm" "vim"
                                       "nmtui" "alsamixer" "htop" "el" "elinks"
        (setq eshell-visual-subcommands '(("git" "log" "diff" "show")))

        (defun my/truncate-eshell-buffers ()
          "Truncates all eshell buffers"
            (dolist (buffer (buffer-list t))
              (set-buffer buffer)
              (when (eq major-mode 'eshell-mode)

        ;; After being idle for 5 seconds, truncate all the eshell-buffers if
        ;; needed. If this needs to be canceled, you can run `(cancel-timer
        ;; my/eshell-truncate-timer)'
        (setq my/eshell-truncate-timer
              (run-with-idle-timer 5 t #'my/truncate-eshell-buffers))

        (when (not (functionp 'eshell/rgrep))
          (defun eshell/rgrep (&rest args)
            "Use Emacs grep facility instead of calling external grep."
            (eshell-grep "rgrep" args t)))

        (defun eshell/cds ()
          "Change directory to the project's root."
          (eshell/cd (locate-dominating-file default-directory ".git")))

        (defun eshell/l (&rest args) "Same as `ls -lh'"
               (apply #'eshell/ls "-lh" args))
        (defun eshell/ll (&rest args) "Same as `ls -lh'"
               (apply #'eshell/ls "-lh" args))
        (defun eshell/la (&rest args) "Same as `ls -alh'"
               (apply #'eshell/ls "-alh" args))

        (defun eshell/clear ()
          "Clear the eshell buffer"
          (let ((eshell-buffer-maximum-lines 0))

Tramp settings

I have really been getting into TRAMP lately, I use it with eshell all the time, and dired tramp buffers are great for file management.

(use-package tramp
  :defer t
    (with-eval-after-load 'tramp-cache
      (setq tramp-persistency-file-name "~/.emacs.d/etc/tramp"))
    (setq tramp-default-user-alist '(("\\`su\\(do\\)?\\'" nil "root"))
          tramp-adb-program "/Users/hinmanm/android-sdk-macosx/platform-tools/adb"
          ;; use the settings in ~/.ssh/config instead of Tramp's
          tramp-use-ssh-controlmaster-options nil
          (lambda (name)
            (and (normal-backup-enable-predicate name)
                 (not (let ((method (file-remote-p name 'method)))
                        (when (stringp method)
                          (member method '("su" "sudo"))))))))

    (use-package tramp-sh
        (add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path "/usr/local/sbin")
        (add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path "/opt/java/current/bin")
        (add-to-list 'tramp-remote-path "~/bin")))))

Spell check and flyspell settings

I use Hunspell and Aspell checking spelling, ignoring words under 3 characters and running very quickly. My personal word dictionary is at ~/.flydict.

First, set up some Hunspell things if applicable, falling back to Aspell if Hunspell isn't available:

;; Standard location of personal dictionary
(setq ispell-personal-dictionary "~/.flydict")

;; Mostly taken from
;; http://blog.binchen.org/posts/what-s-the-best-spell-check-set-up-in-emacs.html
;; if (aspell installed) { use aspell }
;; else if (hunspell installed) { use hunspell }
;; whatever spell checker I use, I always use English dictionary
(setq ispell-program-name (executable-find "aspell"))
(setq ispell-extra-args
      (list "--sug-mode=fast" ;; ultra|fast|normal|bad-spellers

;; hunspell
;; (setq ispell-program-name "hunspell")
;; ;; just reset dictionary to the safe one "en_US" for hunspell.
;; ;; if we need use different dictionary, we specify it in command line arguments
;; (setq ispell-local-dictionary "en_US")
;; (setq ispell-local-dictionary-alist
;;       '(("en_US" "[[:alpha:]]" "[^[:alpha:]]" "[']" nil nil nil utf-8)))

(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '("[^\000-\377]+"))
(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '(":\\(PROPERTIES\\|LOGBOOK\\):" . ":END:"))
(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '("#\\+BEGIN_SRC" . "#\\+END_SRC"))
(add-to-list 'ispell-skip-region-alist '("#\\+BEGIN_EXAMPLE" . "#\\+END_EXAMPLE"))

In most non-programming modes, M-. can be used to spellcheck the word (otherwise it would jump to the definition)

(defun my/enable-flyspell-prog-mode ()

(use-package flyspell
  :defer t
  :diminish ""

View-mode and doc-view

Read-only viewing of files. Keybindings for paging through stuff in a less/vim manner.

Make sure you install mupdf for the best quality PDFs on Linux and OSX. (brew install mupdf on osx)

(use-package view
  :defer t
  (("C-M-n" . View-scroll-half-page-forward)
   ("C-M-p" . View-scroll-half-page-backward))
    ;; When in view-mode, the buffer is read-only:

      (goto-line (line-number-at-pos (point-max))))

    ;; less like

    ;; vi/w3m like
    (define-key view-mode-map (kbd "h") 'backward-char)
    (define-key view-mode-map (kbd "j") 'next-line)
    (define-key view-mode-map (kbd "k") 'previous-line)
    (define-key view-mode-map (kbd "l") 'forward-char)))

(use-package doc-view
  (define-key doc-view-mode-map (kbd "j")
  (define-key doc-view-mode-map (kbd "k")
  ;; use 'q' to kill the buffer, not just hide it
  (define-key doc-view-mode-map (kbd "q")


Dired is sweet, I require dired-x also so I can hit C-x C-j and go directly to a dired buffer.

Setting ls-lisp-dirs-first means directories are always at the top. Always copy and delete recursively. Also enable hl-line-mode in dired, since it's easier to see the cursor then.

To start, a helper to use "open" to open files in dired-mode with M-o (similar to Finder in OSX).

(defun my/dired-open ()
  "Use the OSX `open' command to open a file with the correct editor"
     "~/bin/open" current-prefix-arg
     (dired-get-marked-files t current-prefix-arg))))

And then some other things to setup when dired runs. C-x C-q to edit writable-dired mode is aawwweeeesssoooommee, it makes renames super easy.

(defun my/dired-mode-hook ()
  (toggle-truncate-lines 1))

(use-package dired
  :bind ("C-x C-j" . dired-jump)
    (use-package dired-x
      :init (setq-default dired-omit-files-p t)
      (add-to-list 'dired-omit-extensions ".DS_Store"))
    (customize-set-variable 'diredp-hide-details-initially-flag nil)
    (use-package dired+)

    (put 'dired-find-alternate-file 'disabled nil)
    (setq ls-lisp-dirs-first t

    (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "C-x C-q") 'wdired-change-to-wdired-mode)

Let's make sure to start up a server!

Disabled, I actually start up a background emacs --daemon for this


Navigates back to where you were editing a file next time you open it

(use-package saveplace
  :defer t
  (setq-default save-place t)
  (setq save-place-file (expand-file-name ".places" user-emacs-directory)))


Set up keeping track of recent files, up to 2000 of them.

If emacs has been idle for 10 minutes, clean up the recent files. Also save the list of recent files every 5 minutes.

This also only enables recentf-mode if idle, so that emacs starts up faster.

(use-package recentf

I set the width to 140, because although it should be 80, I only want highlighting past 140 columns, otherwise Java is unreadable.

(setq whitespace-line-column 140)

Here are the things that whitespace-mode should highlight

(setq whitespace-style '(tabs newline space-mark
                         tab-mark newline-mark
                         face lines-tail))

Display pretty things for newlines and tabs (nothing for spaces)

(setq whitespace-display-mappings
      ;; all numbers are Unicode codepoint in decimal. e.g. (insert-char 182 1)
      ;; 32 SPACE, 183 MIDDLE DOT
      '((space-mark nil)
        ;; 10 LINE FEED
        ;;(newline-mark 10 [172 10])
        (newline-mark nil)
        ;; 9 TAB, MIDDLE DOT
        (tab-mark 9 [183 9] [92 9])))

Disable it in certain modes where whitespace doesn't make sense.

(setq whitespace-global-modes '(not org-mode

Always turn on whitespace mode

;; turn on whitespace mode globally
(global-whitespace-mode 1)
(diminish 'global-whitespace-mode "")

Indicate trailing empty lines in the GUI:

(set-default 'indicate-empty-lines t)
(setq show-trailing-whitespace t)

Programming language-specific configuration

Configuration options for language-specific packages live here. I generally only have configuration for languages I use, but the "order of usage" usually goes clojure & shell > elisp > python > ruby > java > everything else.

CEDET (semantic-mode)

Basic semantic-mode things

First, use a development version of cedet if applicable, I download the latest snapshot from http://www.randomsample.de/cedet-snapshots/ and extract it in ~/src/elisp. Don't forget to run make in it!

And then things to set up semantic mode

(defun my/setup-semantic-mode ()
  (use-package semantic)
  (require 'semantic/ia)
  (require 'semantic/wisent)
  ;; Use a better (though slower) parser for java, if it exists
  ;; (autoload 'wisent-java-default-setup "semantic/wisent/java")
  (setq semantic-default-submodes
  (semantic-mode t)
  (local-set-key [(control return)] 'semantic-ia-complete-symbol)
  (local-set-key "\C-c>" 'semantic-complete-analyze-inline)
  (local-set-key "\C-c?" 'semantic-analyze-proto-impl-toggle))

(add-hook 'c-mode-hook #'my/setup-semantic-mode)
(add-hook 'java-mode-hook #'my/setup-semantic-mode)

General prog-mode hooks

Remove some back-ends from vc-mode, no need to check all this ancient things:

(setq vc-handled-backends '(SVN Git))

In programming modes, make sure things like FIXME and TODO are highlighted so they stand out:

(defun my/add-watchwords ()
  "Highlight FIXME, TODO, and NOCOMMIT in code"
   nil '(("\\<\\(FIXME\\|TODO\\|NOCOMMIT\\)\\>"
          1 '((:foreground "#d7a3ad") (:weight bold)) t))))

(defun my/turn-on-hl-line-mode ()
  "Turn on hl-line-mode"
  (hl-line-mode 1))

(add-hook 'prog-mode-hook #'my/add-watchwords)
(add-hook 'prog-mode-hook #'my/turn-on-hl-line-mode)
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'my/turn-on-hl-line-mode)


Some helper functions for jumping between tests, I prefer test/foo.clj instead of foo_test.clj

;; custom test locations instead of foo_test.clj, use test/foo.clj
(defun clojure-test-for-without-test (namespace)
  (let* ((namespace (clojure-underscores-for-hyphens namespace))
         (segments (split-string namespace "\\."))
         (before (subseq segments 0 1))
         (after (subseq segments 1))
         (test-segments (append before (list "test") after)))
    (format "%stest/%s.clj"
            (locate-dominating-file buffer-file-name "src/")
            (mapconcat 'identity test-segments "/"))))

(defun clojure-test-implementation-for-without-test (namespace)
  (let* ((namespace (clojure-underscores-for-hyphens namespace))
         (segments (split-string namespace "\\."))
         (before (subseq segments 0 1))
         (after (subseq segments 2))
         (impl-segments (append before after)))
    (format "%s/src/%s.clj"
            (locate-dominating-file buffer-file-name "src/")
            (mapconcat 'identity impl-segments "/"))))

Other Clojure-specific settings:

(defun my/clojure-things-hook ()
  "Set up clojure-y things"
  (eldoc-mode 1)
  (subword-mode t)
  ;; use my test layout fns
  ;; (setq clojure-test-for-fn 'my-clojure-test-for)
  ;; (setq clojure-test-implementation-for-fn 'my-clojure-test-implementation-for)
  ;; compile faster
  (setq font-lock-verbose nil)
  (global-set-key (kbd "C-c t") 'clojure-jump-between-tests-and-code)
  (paredit-mode 1))

(use-package clojure-mode
    (add-hook 'clojure-mode-hook 'my/clojure-things-hook)))

Let's define a couple of helper functions for setting up the cider and ac-nrepl packages:

(defun my/setup-cider ()
  (lambda ()
    (setq cider-history-file "~/.nrepl-history"
          cider-hide-special-buffers t
          cider-repl-history-size 10000
          cider-prefer-local-resources t
          cider-popup-stacktraces-in-repl t)
    (paredit-mode 1)
    (eldoc-mode 1)))

And then finally use them if cider and ac-nrepl packages are available:

(use-package cider
    (add-hook 'cider-mode-hook 'my/setup-cider)
    (add-hook 'cider-repl-mode-hook 'my/setup-cider)
    (add-hook 'cider-mode-hook 'my/clojure-things-hook)
    (add-hook 'cider-repl-mode-hook 'my/clojure-things-hook)))


I write a LOT of shell-scripts, I turn off show-paren-mode (I have show-smartparen-mode anyway) and flycheck (I don't want to run it!) as well as not blinking the matching paren.

(add-hook 'sh-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
            (show-paren-mode -1)
            (flycheck-mode -1)
            (setq blink-matching-paren nil)))

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.zsh$" . shell-script-mode))


This contains the configuration for elisp programming

First, turn on eldoc everywhere it's useful:

(defun my/turn-on-paredit-and-eldoc ()
  (paredit-mode 1)
  (eldoc-mode 1))

(add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook #'my/turn-on-paredit-and-eldoc)
(add-hook 'ielm-mode-hook #'my/turn-on-paredit-and-eldoc)

And some various eldoc settings:

(use-package eldoc
    (use-package diminish
      (progn (diminish 'eldoc-mode "")))
    (setq eldoc-idle-delay 0.3)
    (set-face-attribute 'eldoc-highlight-function-argument nil
                        :underline t :foreground "green"
                        :weight 'bold)))

Change the faces for elisp regex grouping:

(set-face-foreground 'font-lock-regexp-grouping-backslash "#ff1493")
(set-face-foreground 'font-lock-regexp-grouping-construct "#ff8c00")

Define some niceties for popping up an ielm buffer:

(defun ielm-other-window ()
  "Run ielm on other window"
   (get-buffer-create "*ielm*"))
  (call-interactively 'ielm))

(define-key emacs-lisp-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-z") 'ielm-other-window)
(define-key lisp-interaction-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-z") 'ielm-other-window)

Turn on elisp-slime-nav if available, so M-. works to jump to function definitions:

(use-package elisp-slime-nav
  :init (add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook #'elisp-slime-nav-mode))

Borrowed from Steve Purcell's config. This pretty-prints the results.

(bind-key "M-:" 'pp-eval-expression)

(defun sanityinc/eval-last-sexp-or-region (prefix)
 "Eval region from BEG to END if active, otherwise the last sexp."
 (interactive "P")
 (if (and (mark) (use-region-p))
 (eval-region (min (point) (mark)) (max (point) (mark)))
 (pp-eval-last-sexp prefix)))

(bind-key "C-x C-e" 'sanityinc/eval-last-sexp-or-region emacs-lisp-mode-map)

(define-key lisp-mode-shared-map (kbd "RET") 'reindent-then-newline-and-indent)


Some various python settings, including loading jedi if needed to set up keys, the custom hook only loads jedi when editing python files:

(use-package python
  :defer t
    (define-key python-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-z") 'run-python)
    (define-key python-mode-map (kbd "<backtab>") 'python-back-indent)
    (defun my/setup-jedi ()
      (use-package jedi

          (setq jedi:setup-keys t)
          (setq jedi:complete-on-dot t)
          (define-key python-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-d") 'jedi:show-doc)
          (setq jedi:tooltip-method nil)
          (set-face-attribute 'jedi:highlight-function-argument nil
                              :foreground "green")
          (define-key python-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-l") 'jedi:get-in-function-call))))
    (add-hook 'python-mode-hook #'my/setup-jedi)))


Java uses eclim and/or malabar to make life at least a little bit livable.

intellij-java-style is a copy of our Intellij indentation rules for Elasticsearch, which are a little weird in some cases, but needed in order to work with the ES codebase.

Misc theme settings

color theme

For light-colored backgrounds, I used leuven-theme. For dark-colored backgrounds (most of the time), I use my own custom theme, called dakrone-theme. Sometimes I use moe-theme for a dark background also, although the magenta text annoys me somewhat. Lately I've also been checking out tangotango, which seems nice.

I use org-mode a ton, so it get's its own page here.

A great lot of this was taken from http://doc.norang.ca/org-mode.html, to which I owe almost all of the agenda configuration. The capture stuff and regular org settings are mine.

First, the hook that gets run every time org-mode is started, to turn on certain modes

(defun my/org-mode-hook ()
  (when (fboundp 'my/enable-abbrev-mode)

  ;; fix some bindings that org-mode overwrites
  (define-key org-mode-map [C-tab] 'other-window)
  (define-key org-mode-map [C-S-tab]
    (lambda ()
      (other-window -1)))
  (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-'")
  (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-x C-f") 'org-refile)
  (define-key org-agenda-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-x C-f") 'org-agenda-refile))

Exporting org-mode to reveal.js presentations

This allows a GUI emacs to inherit $PATH and other things from the shell when run. I use it for the path on OSX and JAVA_HOME everywhere else.

Visually kill programs and processes, I use helm-occur here (thanks John Wiegley!) because it makes selecting things much easier.

  (defun vkill-and-helm-occur ()

alert (notifications)

Yep. I need to actually make this work for OSX, for Linux it's no problem though.

(use-package alert
  :defer t

      (setq alert-default-style 'notifier))
    (when (eq system-type 'gnu/linux)
      (setq alert-default-style 'notifications))))

To use this, I just need to do (alert "this is a message").

Ediff is fantastic for looking through diffs, a lot of these settings are taken from http://oremacs.com/2015/01/17/setting-up-ediff/

(defun my/setup-ediff ()
  (define-key ediff-mode-map "j" #'ediff-next-difference)
  (define-key ediff-mode-map "k" #'ediff-previous-difference))

     ;; Always split nicely for wide screens

     ;; Ignore whitespace

Smooth scrolling means when you hit C-n to go to the next line at the bottom of the page, instead of doing a page-down, it shifts down by a single line. The margin means that much space is kept between the cursor and the bottom of the buffer.

(use-package smooth-scrolling
  :defer t
  (setq smooth-scroll-margin 4))


Paredit for all the lisps.

If on OSX, you'll need to:

brew install ctags
wget -c http://tamacom.com/global/global-6.3.1.tar.gz
tar zxvf global-6.3.1.tar.gz
cd global-6.3.1
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-exuberant-ctags=/usr/local/bin/ctags
make install

I basically use this to start up ES when I need to test something really quickly

I have been trying out esvm for this lately also, with this config in ~/.esvmrc:

  "defaults": {
    "plugins": [],
    "config": {
      "node.add_id_to_custom_path": false,
      "node.enable_custom_paths": true,
      "script.disable_dynamic": false,
      "cluster.name": "es-lee"
  "clusters": {
    "1node": {
      "branch": "1.6",
      "nodes": 1
    "2node": {
      "branch": "1.6",
      "nodes": 2
    "3node": {
      "branch": "1.6",
      "nodes": 3
    "10node": {
      "branch": "1.6",
      "nodes": 10

So I configure prodigy like so:

(use-package prodigy
  :defer t
  :bind ("C-x P" . prodigy)
      :name "ES 1.6, 10 nodes"
      :cwd "~/ies/"
      :command "esvm"
      :args '("10node")
      :tags '(work test es)
      :port 9200)

      :name "ES 1.6, 3 nodes"
      :cwd "~/ies/"
      :command "esvm"
      :args '("3node")
      :tags '(work test es)
      :port 9200)

      :name "ES 1.6, 2 nodes"
      :cwd "~/ies/"
      :command "esvm"
      :args '("2node")
      :tags '(work test es)
      :port 9200)

Anzu shows the number of search hits in the modeline, which is handy.

Utility methods

Various methods I call interactively for things.

Fixing SSH agent settings

This is for correctly finding the SSH agent:

(defun find-agent ()
  (first (split-string
            "ls -t1 "
            "$(find /tmp/ -uid $UID -path \\*ssh\\* -type s 2> /dev/null)"
            "head -1")))))

(defun fix-agent ()
  (let ((agent (find-agent)))
    (setenv "SSH_AUTH_SOCK" agent)
    (message agent)))

Format JSON more beautifully

I work with a ton of JSON, so I need to be able to format it nicely. Fortunately this is really easy with Python:

(defun beautify-json ()
  (let ((b (if mark-active (min (point) (mark)) (point-min)))
        (e (if mark-active (max (point) (mark)) (point-max))))
    (shell-command-on-region b e
                             "python -mjson.tool" (current-buffer) t)))

Recompile startup elisp files

Byte-compile startup stuff.

(defun byte-recompile-init-files ()
  "Recompile all of the startup files"
  (byte-recompile-directory "~/.emacs.d" 0))

Adding directories to $PATH

A utility method to add things to the $PATH, if needed.

(defun add-to-path (path-element)
  "Add the specified path element to the Emacs PATH"
  (interactive "DEnter directory to be added to path: ")
  (if (file-directory-p path-element)
      (setenv "PATH"
              (concat (expand-file-name path-element)
                      path-separator (getenv "PATH")))))

Misc methods for cleaning up a buffer

(defun untabify-buffer ()
  (untabify (point-min) (point-max)))

(defun indent-buffer ()
  (indent-region (point-min) (point-max)))

(defun cleanup-buffer ()
  "Perform a bunch of operations on the whitespace content of a buffer."

Browsing URLs

Search backwards, prompting to open any URL found. This is fantastic for ERC buffers. I bind this to C-c u because I use it a lot.

(defun browse-last-url-in-brower ()
    (let ((ffap-url-regexp

Numbering rectangles

Let's say you have a list like:

First Item
Second Item
Third Item
Fourth Item

And you want to number it to look like:

1. First Item
2. Second Item
3. Third Item
4. Fourth Item

This function allows you to hit C-x r N and specify the pattern and starting offset to number lines in rectangular-selection mode:

(defun number-rectangle (start end format-string from)
  "Delete (don't save) text in the region-rectangle, then number it."
   (list (region-beginning) (region-end)
         (read-string "Number rectangle: "
                      (if (looking-back "^ *") "%d. " "%d"))
         (read-number "From: " 1)))
    (goto-char start)
    (setq start (point-marker))
    (goto-char end)
    (setq end (point-marker))
    (delete-rectangle start end)
    (goto-char start)
    (loop with column = (current-column)
          while (and (<= (point) end) (not (eobp)))
          for i from from   do
          (move-to-column column t)
          (insert (format format-string i))
          (forward-line 1)))
  (goto-char start))

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x r N") 'number-rectangle)
