My current setup for my emacs, with spacemacs.


    The setup is inspired by this article. The basic idea is to organize my own setup code into a private spacemacs layer. Simply because I don't want to have a gigantic .spacemacs file, nor tons of (load-file ...) in it. Gonna do it the spacemacs way. Nice and clean.
    This whole org file is the source code of my setup. I simply tangle the necessary code blocks into the right place, then magic happens.

    Install Spacemacs

    The last time I checked, this still works. I don't think it's going to change any time soon. But just in case, check the official document.
     git clone ~/.emacs.d 

    Spacemacs Init File

    This section is the content of file ~/.spacemacs.d/init.el.


    I categorize my layers into the following categories.

    Core Layers

    The basic ones.
      (shell :variables
             shell-default-shell 'eshell
             shell-default-height 30
             shell-default-position 'bottom)

           org-enable-hugo-support t
           org-enable-github-support t
           org-projectile-file (concat org-directory "/")
           org-enable-reveal-js-support t)

    Programming Languages

    The ones that help my writing code.

    Local Layers

    My local layers, currently only has one for all my customization.
       :location local)

    Config the Layers

    Config the spacemacs layers. Include all the layers above.

    I experienced an export issue on one of my org files, like this one. And the solution is to recompile the elpa binaries. I have a function for that called config/recompile-elpa.

    Personal Layers
