Welcome to my personal site, where I irregularly post technical notes, usually Emacs or Haskell-related. I am developer at Wix during the daytime, and developer at home before and after the daytime. When I am not writing code, I am either drinking wine or drinking tea (with these little cups). Cheese is my bread and tracking everything in Emacs is my cheese. So welcome!

emacs-plus: current state

January 8, 2020

Not everyone knows, but emacs-plus is almost an April Fool’s joke that was late for 1 day. Its initial release was on 2nd April 2016 and the only feature it had compared to the official Emacs formula back in the day was Spacemacs icon (installed by default). Homebrew maintainers didn’t want to increase the complexity of the Emacs formula, so I’ve put that burden on myself, created a tap with one additional icon and after several years info command for emacs-plus prints a wall of options.

I am very happy to see so many users of this feature-inclusive (and sometimes experimental) formula. I am grateful to all of you. I would’ve abandoned this project a year ago if it would not you! And I think it’s fair to (in)formally share the current state of the project and shed some light on my plans.
