I'm interested to try and publish a eBook on a topic that you all would find valuable, something related to what we talk about on this channel.
What would you be interested to read about in an eBook?
Mickey Petersen of Mastering Emacs fame wrote a blog post recently titled "Bad Emacs Advice":
Today we're going to experiment with M-x customize and see if we how much of Emacs we can configure using the UI alone!
We'll start from a blank configuration and build up from there.
We'll also take a look at the resulting configuration file to see what it contains!
(setq custom-file (expand-file-name (concat user-emacs-directory "custom.el"))) (load custom-file) (message "Config is loaded!")
