Top 23 Emac Open-Source Projects

  • GitHub repo spacemacs

    A community-driven Emacs distribution - The best editor is neither Emacs nor Vim, it's Emacs *and* Vim!

    Project mention: Easiest way to install spacemacs on OSX 11.4 Big Sur? | reddit.com/r/spacemacs | 2021-06-22

    I installed emacs-plus using homebrew and afterwards, as you suggested, cloned the spacemacs repo, making sure to switch to the develop branch, prior to launching emacs for the first time.

  • GitHub repo dracula-theme

    🧛🏻‍♂️ Dark theme for all the things!

    Project mention: Making money from open source | dev.to | 2021-03-03

    The Dracula UI theme was created by Zeno Rocha as an opensource project when he was sick in hospital in 2013. It became a popular theme over the years. In late 2019, he decided to try to find a way to monetize the project when he saw how high the traffic to the draculatheme website was.

  • GitHub repo doom-emacs

    An Emacs framework for the stubborn martian hacker

    Project mention: Fast access to TODO states not working | reddit.com/r/orgmode | 2021-06-22

    In Doom Emacs with evil keybindings,SPC m t is mapped to org-todo (relevant line in Doom Emacs source) and should give the option to change the TODO state using the relevant keybindings (a small buffer pops up at the bottom of the screen). I've used it for a while, and haven't had any issues with it.

  • GitHub repo awesome-emacs

    A community driven list of useful Emacs packages, libraries and others.

    Project mention: Come to tty mode! No desktop environment, no window manager, no images, no distractions! | reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-05-01

    Another good resource.

  • GitHub repo nyxt

    Nyxt - the internet on your terms.

    Project mention: Mozilla is officially against an open net. Wants governments to pass laws suppressing "conspiracy theory" content. AKA any recognition that our governing class are malevolent. If you use Mozilla, ditch it. | reddit.com/r/thehatedone | 2021-06-14

    Nyxt, Luakit, min, Eolie, Epiphany, NetSurf, and w3m

  • GitHub repo magit

    It's Magit! A Git porcelain inside Emacs.

    Project mention: Customize Neovim in Lisp | reddit.com/r/vim | 2021-06-19

    If I search for magit on Google I quickly find https://magit.vc/ and from there I can find a visual walkthrough that gives me a better idea of how magit. When I search for fugitive vim I can't find a resource as detailed, at best I can find videos, but I find videos to be poor for documentation since it's much harder to just go to the information I want.

  • GitHub repo Filestash

    🦄 A modern web client for SFTP, S3, FTP, WebDAV, Git, Minio, LDAP, CalDAV, CardDAV, Mysql, Backblaze, ...

    Project mention: Web-based collaborative file manager with external auth and storage backend | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-05-13

    That said there's something that I found that looks similar to what I'm looking for, and it's called [filestash](https://www.filestash.app/), but it doesn't seem to support OneDrive as a backend nor external auth. Nextcloud also seems to support some external backends, but not OneDrive aswell, but it does seem to support external auth.

  • GitHub repo prelude

    Prelude is an enhanced Emacs 25.1+ distribution that should make your experience with Emacs both more pleasant and more powerful.

    Project mention: how can I stop whitespace-mode highlighting in org-mode and markdown-mode | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-05-06

    Project mention: What is the next big feature, after native comp, that we can expect from emacs in near future? | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-04-29
  • GitHub repo use-package

    A use-package declaration for simplifying your .emacs

    Project mention: pdf-tools got a new maintainer | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-05-13

    Have all contributes signed away their copyright rights to the FSF? I think that's what prevented the very useful use-package from being part of Emacs.

  • GitHub repo lsp-mode

    Emacs client/library for the Language Server Protocol

    Project mention: What was your experience of moving from lsp-mode to eglot? | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-06-22

  • GitHub repo evil

    The extensible vi layer for Emacs.

    Project mention: My very cursed keyboard [Hyper 7 R3] | reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards | 2021-06-09

    emacs is its own software platform. pretty much every aspect of it is customizable (for example, you can remap the g key on your keyboard to execute a command rather than insert a g character... unclear why you'd want to do this (I guess this is how its vi emulation is implemented), but you can).

  • GitHub repo swiper

    Ivy - a generic completion frontend for Emacs, Swiper - isearch with an overview, and more. Oh, man! (by abo-abo)

  • GitHub repo emacs-application-framework

    Emacs application framework

    Project mention: Is there a way to send text msgs from android phone from within emacs similar to kdeconnect? | reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-06-02

    An opinionated pack of modern color-themes

    Project mention: The doom-one theme is not rendered correctly in terminal | reddit.com/r/DoomEmacs | 2021-06-09

    Because of this line https://github.com/hlissner/emacs-doom-themes/blob/b2c0ea0f0778a6ea85b87e1b87916572e98e1fe7/themes/doom-one-theme.el#L52,
