Some Emacs extensions that I find useful.
- Elscreen manages window configurations in a
screen-like fashion. If you're already using
screen, this extension has a very low barrier to entry.
Other Emacs users also find
winner-modeuseful, which comes with recent Emacs versions.
- Magit: Very nice git integration.
- Notmuch: Fantastic mail indexing tool that comes with an integrated
mail reader that runs in Emacs. I use it in combination with
offlineimapand would not trade it in for Thunderbird any more.
- Emacs Muse: It generates this homepage. I'm sometimes not sure whether something markdown-based wouldn't have been a better choice, but now I'm stuck with it.
- For Lisp
- Paredit navigates and manipulates the parenthesized Lisp
expressions. I don't want to edit Lisp without it any more.
Paredit keeps your parentheses balanced, so you never have to count.
Paredit cheat sheets:
- Geiser (for Schemes)
Nice Scheme mode that integrates nicely with Guile.
- SLIME (for Common Lisp)
The Common Lisp IDE. :)
