100th post

100

With that last post, emacs-fu reached the 100 posts milestone! Hurray! Thank you for all the support, it's been a great ride so far, and there's so much more to write about - if only there were 36 hours in a day.

Anyway, to celebrate, I'll be off for the coming weeks (Korea), and I'm not sure if I have much time to blog from there. So, let's take this opportunity for a small reader poll: what would you be interested to read about? More programming-related stuff, more org-mode, more about integration with other programs, more interviews, more …?

Please leave your ideas in the comments. I'd be interested to hear!

Update: I am back now; thanks for all the replies. It seems that many people are interested in CEDET. In fact, I am interested in it myself as well, but am not using it right now, so it will take a while. For the time being, Alex Ott's Gentle Introduction might be the best way to get started.

I'd like to see more on streamlining progrtamming in Emacs. Defining own faces and extending colorschemes, extending existing major modes to allow for another workflow. More org and perhaps some best practices when writing your .emacs could be helpful. Right now, my .emacs.d is a mess with configuration spread out in several files and no real organization. How do you guys handle this?

Some Cedet would be nice!

some hints about emacs + java

It would be great if You could write about setting up CEDET + EDE + semantic so it will be up to date - most guides are referring to older versions of those packages.

I'd be interested in your blogging set up. I assume you compose your posts in emacs. How do you get them from emacs to blogger? What packages, settings etc.

How can I use emacs to make posting to my blog easier & prettier?

Thanks for all the wonderful tips in your 1st hundred posts.

Johnny said...

All of the above! Thanks for sharing all the emacs tips!

I've enjoyed all of your posts. You've introduced me to many parts of Emacs which I didn't know about and which I now use frequently. I hope you keep posting about a variety of things.

Congratulations! And thanks for you work, I'm really enjoying it. (:

+1 to CEDET + EDE + Semantics

Most useful of your recent posts to me: 23.2, and new/underused workhorse/utility/housekeeping packages: ibuffer, iedit, diminish, midnight. So, more like those, please.

Please put the tag list in the sidebar. It's impossible to know what tags exist and to navigate to those tags.

Blogger -> Layout -> Add a gadget -> Labels.

Cheers.

notmuchmail. NOTMUCHMAIL. notmuch mail BADLY needs intelligent articles. otherwise, elisp articles, using emacs/elips as a batch tool,

CEDET, ECB, JDEE. Programming on C++, Java, Python, esp. fast code navigation and smart completion. All this for emacs 23.1.

I'd also like to know more about your personal setup, your distro, Desktop and Bloggin Environment.

Thanks for sharing this, I have been very useful :D

emacs-23.2, CEDET and Java would be very nice indeed!

CEDET; with its inclusion in vanilla emacs, its a necessity now.

Paul Hobbs said...

CEDET and Java. Ways to automate tasks.

I love the blog, keep it up!

Your introduction to Wanderlust convinced me to switch to it. So one vote for more on your usage of Wanderlust !

Personally I'm interested in org-mode and I'd like to know about is it possibly to organize database-like working with org-mode. How to make 'queries' over 'tables', what are 'fields' etc etc etc...

I want to communicate to different devices from within emacs. Example: I have a digital scale with ethernet, it reports each weigh on a simple we interface and can be queried--I want to get that info into a file from within emacs.
Also want to program emacs to take that data and send it to a Zebra label printer, with part name, date, etc.
for an inventory label.

I want to write a major mode for CNC G-code files used for editing/programming Computer controlled mills and lathes.
I have been wading through the docs for how to do this, but it is really not clear.

I use the tabs in xemacs all the time, and have 5-7 files open at once usually.
clicking on a tab displays the file in that tab. What I want to do is add an opposite click pop-up menu with a choice to close that tab, save file, etc. How do you set up a pop up menu for when you opposite click on a tab?

revbufs and alternatives would be a good topic.
