  • New to emacs; will you hold my hand?

    I was watching some videos and saw this, which is HUUUGE. Is there some other resource that I can just start with one piece/package at a time and keep adding more slowly?
  • Is emacs for me?

    Lisp take a while to learn, but you really don't need too much knowledge. I would recommend using blocks of code from others' configs as a beginner.
  • Emacs Behavioral Modifications

    While watching a Systems Crafters playlist about emacs I decided I wanted to checkout his configuration to see if it had anything I would find useful. As his style of development is different from mine I did not find a whole lot, but I did find something useful. In his init.el he has a section that moves files like places to a different directory to keep his ~/.emacs.d clean. As I keep my ~/.emacs.d directory as a symbolic link to my dotfiles repository I immediately added this to my configuration; however, it does not seem to work at least as I expected it to. Within my init.el I have a block of code that is copied from his, but modified slightly to create ~/.cache/emacs if it does not already exist, and then apply the changes to where these files should be stored. I don't seem to get any errors, but this also does not seem to change where those files get stored. Am I misunderstanding what his block of code does?
