TGRO's Emacs Init
Split into multiple files!

Word Of Warning

These Emacs configuration and initialisation files are:

  • Largely un-commented.
  • Extremely messy.
  • Badly thrown together.
  • Borderline crazy.


This file does basically nothing but load my other files.

It contains what I find convenient to have here, like installed packages in case I quickly need a list of them, and the customize stuff in case I have been messing around with that.

I also occasionally chuck stuff into it when I just need somewhere quick to put it.

(load "/home/fd/.emacs.d/finnit/finn_load.el")
 ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
 ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
 ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
 ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.

Split Files

I have multiple initialisation files, an idea stolen from Xah Lee. Where he split files up per-type (i.e. all keybindings in one file), I split per-mode, allowing Emacs to load different settings dynamically, depending on what type of file I am open; my large-ish init.el file meant Emacs was becoming slow to start (by which I mean a whole 1.5s!) and I am a big fan of instant gratification.

Currently I am using variables and eval-after-load statements to load these files, but I feel that there must be a better way. If you know then please let me know.

It also makes my configuration quite portable. I carry it on a USB stick on the off-chance that need to use Emacs on another computer for longer than minutes.

Load Files

This file simply loads the other files. This would usually be in the main init.el but is instead here in the interests of portability.

(defun full-path (@file-relative-path)
  "Get full path of file relative to caller file location."
  (concat (file-name-directory
           (or load-file-name buffer-file-name))

(load (full-path "finn_settings"))
(load (full-path "finn_other"))

(setq finn_bongo-path (full-path "finn_bongo"))
    'bongo '(progn (load finn_bongo-path)))

(setq finn_clojure-path (full-path "finn_clojure"))
    'clojure-mode '(progn (load finn_clojure-path)))

;; So far no problem with default Erlang config!
;; (eval-after-load

(setq finn_haskell-path (full-path "finn_haskell"))
    'haskell-mode '(progn (load finn_haskell-path)))
