My emacs setup for python dev

2 comments

Just configured aquamacs and it’s awesome! Simple and quick. Will put up my .emacs and other details soon on github here.

Stuff I am using are:

1. ECB – emacs code browser
2. emacs-for-python which includes all the goodies you need for python development!
3. Solarized dark theme, whose emacs port is here.

My fav feature? It’s M-x artist-mode , see a screencast here

(HOW-TO: Use mouse middle button to get options, COMMAND+click on a mac. Exit using M-x artist-mode-off)

If you are using Aquamacs, I recommend you not to use ~/.emacs but directly edit the file which it loads, its located here: ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/Preferences.el

The ultimate emacs course – An awesome 2hr video lecture for emacs!

  1. I use Kate. What’s your opinion?

  2. You should use an editor which suits you. My personal rule of thumb is, use things which teach you something. Always.

    Linux over Windows
    Emacs/Vim over gedit (Kate is cool though, but a little heavy)
