Michael Paulukonis often refers to himself in the third person. He is also known as (the) Other Michael. Unsurprisingly for somebody who has a user-page in this wiki, he uses Emacs.
But only since the summer of 2007, and mainly on Windows.
He can also be found online at http://michaelpaulukonis.com/ and http://www.xradiograph.com/Emacs
He’s a member of the FSF – and you should be, too (especially if you use Emacs) !
Theme handling system
deftheme is the theme-handling system introduced in Emacs 23, and enhanced in Emacs 24. As such, it is something of a replacement for ColorTheme.
Emacs 24 finally introduced a new standard way of dealing with color themes (based on Emacs’s built-in customize facility). While it doesn’t have a proper name (as far as I know) it’s commonly referred to as the deftheme facility, since deftheme is the name of the macro you’d use to create such a theme. -source
By default Emacs24 comes with several themes.
Adding new themes
You can add more…. somehow….
- Switching themes does not roll-back changes applied in a theme. You need to disable the current (or any previously applied) themes to have a blank slate.
- order matters
- This was its own page for a while, but selected elements were merged into the page for the ColorTheme package.
- but added were some notes on how
deftheme (“Custom Themes”) differed from ColorTheme (can’t roll-back changes applied in
deftheme for instance).
- Doesn’t make sense to me, since ColorTheme is a specific package, and the notes on using
deftheme have nothing to do with that package.
re-org(ing) my init-file(s)
- IN-PROGRESS as of 2013.07
- some things to stare at
- learning and using….
- Journal - I use a modified version of this.
- created a repo @ https://github.com/MichaelPaulukonis/fisler-journal.el
- contains original code as found @ Journal and my modifications
- TODO: Clean up code, prefix-space (“namespace”) the code, and fix the issues
- I’m migrating over to use org-mode, but I used Journal for about 6 years; I have a lot of fondness for it
- and it’s influenced how I want to work with org-mode (which may not be how I should work with org-mode)
Gravatar from Emacs
The image at top is my Gravatar. It’s a useful service that ties an email address to an image, so if someone gives you an email you can maybe find a picture of them.
You need to hash the email to generate the url though, here’s how in EmacsLisp:
(print (md5 (downcase "firstname.lastname@example.org")) (current-buffer))
and the markup:
Once you define it with that markup, it will now display w/in the wiki when your user-name is referenced in certain contexts For example:
[MichaelPaulukonis] do not render, but
[new:MichaelPaulukonis:2013-05-13 13:28 UTC] is displaying, but
[new:MichaelPaulukonis 2013-06-11 13:54 UTC] (colon replaced with space) is NOT displaying.
Can’t find any notes on this, yet, other than what I blatantly stole from NicFerrier.
Packages/pages/things I like
Packages I used to like
Packages, Pages, and things I am thinking about liking
- a way to get nxml mode to be happy with html5
- a NodeJs mode that gives me auto-completion on the REPL within Emacs, of course
- SachaChua - in particular, the link about re-orging the .emacs file
