‘fol dingo’ means in French “crazy mad” :)

This package was inspired by outline mode, folding.el (from Jamie Lokier), tinyfold.el (Jari Aalto), foldout.el (Kevin Broadey). Advantages with respect to other packages:

  1. Menu support
  2. Simple mouse behavior to open/close folds
  3. Programmable faces to identify open or closed folds
  4. Customizable identification of folds You may use explicit folds bounded by {{{ and }}} You may also have implicit folds depending on the mode (for instance in Lisp- or C-based mode, long definitions are folded).

…this one doesn’t work either:

…but this one works:

For TeX users: I made my “tex-mode.el” override the keybindings for C-c f i and C-c f c with the according definitions for TeX. This way I usually got C(++) foldings and TeX foldings when in (La)TeX mode accessible via the keyboard.

Here is what you got to do if you want the same:

At the LaTeX keymap definition (in file “tex-mode.el”)

                    (defun tex-define-common-keys(keymap)...

you insert the following two lines:

            (define-key keymap "\C-cfi"   'insert-new-latex-fold)
            (define-key keymap "\C-cfc"   'close-latex-fold)

then you append the following to the “tex-mode.el” (I put it just before the (run hooks…) statement:

    (defun close-latex-fold ()
      "Closing a fold for LaTeX."
      (interactive "*")
      (if (not (bolp))
          (insert ?\n))
      (insert "%%}}}%%\n")

    (defun insert-new-latex-fold (foldname)
      "Insert a new fold for LaTeX."
      (interactive "*sTitle of the new fold: ")
      (if (not (bolp))
          (insert ?\n))
      (insert (format "%%%%{{{  %s  %%%%\n"

Now you byte-compile the “tex-mode.el” again and everything should work fine.


Quand le source dit : “Caution: this hook must be appended and not prepended since fold-mode uses ^M characters and these characters may trigger some other hooks”, il faut comprendre quoi ? :) append, c’est mettre devant, mais devant quoi ? (When the source says “Caution…”, what am I supposed to understand ? :) append means put before, but, before what ?). If a put this question here, it’s ‘cause I think I might not be the only one not to understand (at least I hope so !) – LucasBonnet

Such text usually refers to wether things get appended to the front or the end of a list. See ListModification. – AlexSchroeder

Is foldingo dead? The above link points to a version that is about four years old. Is folding the better way to go? – DavidMasterson
