Some people claim that Emacs is difficult to start with. The main problem is probably the chicken-and-egg situation: To make the most use of Emacs, you probably need to understand Emacs (Lisp), but to grok Emacs Lisp you pretty much neeed to understand the fundamentals of Emacs.
A common suggestion is to use frameworks or ready-made configurations that provide a layer of abstraction to
help set up common functionality. This site is an attempt to approach
the issue from a different standpoint, by having an interested user
pick-and-choose what they would like to start with and provide a
template to build on. Note that you will be suggested a few packages
that are downloaded over the internet, from the ELPA (Emacs Lisp package archive) repositories.
Note: This site is still experimental, and
there is a lot more that can be done. See this article for more details.
So if interested, fill out the form below and have a configuration file generated.
