Installation and usage

Installing emacs

This installation is Mac OSX specific and the instructions will build the latest emacs revision. I assume that you are using homebrew as a package manager.

To install emacs:

$ brew install emacs --cocoa --use-git-head --HEAD
$ mv /usr/local/Cellar/emacs/HEAD/ /Applications/

If you want the latest stable emacs version (I have only tested with emacs 24 so you 're on your own with earlier versions):

$ brew install emacs --cocoa
$ mv /usr/local/Cellar/emacs/HEAD/ /Applications/

Now you can run emacs just like any other Mac OSX application

Installing the emacs configuration

Run the following for the installation:

$ cd ~
$ hg clone .emacs.d

Adjust the paths in the beginning of init.el to match your environment.
