Trying New Emacs Packages by Minad


Trying New Packages by Minad

Apparently Daniel Mendler (minad), creator of Vertico, Consult, and more, has been very busy creating a bunch of new packages!

Let’s try some out today and see if we like them:

If we don’t get through all of these, we may try the rest in another stream soon!

The final configuration

Here’s what we built on stream today:

(use-package corfu
  ;; Optional customizations
  (corfu-cycle t)                ;; Enable cycling for `corfu-next/previous'
  (corfu-auto t)                 ;; Enable auto completion
  (corfu-preview-current nil)    ;; Disable current candidate preview
  (corfu-echo-documentation t) ;; Disable documentation in the echo area
  (corfu-scroll-margin 5)        ;; Use scroll margin

(use-package kind-icon
  :ensure t
  :after corfu
  (kind-icon-default-face 'corfu-default) ; to compute blended backgrounds correctly
  (add-to-list 'corfu-margin-formatters #'kind-icon-margin-formatter))

;; cape-file
;; cape-keyword
;; cape-dabbrev
;; cape-symbol
;; cape-line

(setq-local completion-at-point-functions
            (list (cape-super-capf #'cape-dabbrev #'cape-file #'cape-keyword #'cape-symbol)))

(use-package cape
  :ensure t
  ;; Bind dedicated completion commands
  :bind (("C-c p p" . completion-at-point) ;; capf
         ("C-c p t" . complete-tag)        ;; etags
         ("C-c p d" . cape-dabbrev)        ;; or dabbrev-completion
         ("C-c p f" . cape-file)

         ("C-c p &" . cape-sgml)
         ("C-c p r" . cape-rfc1345))
  ;; Add `completion-at-point-functions', used by `completion-at-point'.

    ;; Add the Tempel Capf to `completion-at-point-functions'. `tempel-expand'
    ;; only triggers on exact matches. Alternatively use `tempel-complete' if
    ;; you want to see all matches, but then Tempel will probably trigger too
    ;; often when you don't expect it.
    ;; NOTE: We add `tempel-expand' *before* the main programming mode Capf,
    ;; such that it will be tried first.
    (setq-local completion-at-point-functions
                (cons #'tempel-expand

  (add-hook 'prog-mode-hook 'tempel-setup-capf)

  ;; either locally or globally. `expand-abbrev' is bound to C-x '.
