;;; Commentary:

;; Minor modes are useful and common.  This package makes defining a
;; minor mode easy, by focusing on the writing of the minor mode
;; functionalities themselves.  Moreover, this package enforces a
;; conventional naming of user interface primitives, making things
;; natural for the minor-mode end-users.

;; For each mode, easy-mmode defines the following:
;; <mode>      : The minor mode predicate. A buffer-local variable.
;; <mode>-map  : The keymap possibly associated to <mode>.
;; <mode>-hook,<mode>-on-hook,<mode>-off-hook and <mode>-mode:
;;       see `easy-mmode-define-minor-mode' documentation
;; eval
;;  (pp (macroexpand '(easy-mmode-define-minor-mode <your-mode> <doc>)))
;; to check the result before using it.

;; The order in which minor modes are installed is important.  Keymap
;; lookup proceeds down minor-mode-map-alist, and the order there
;; tends to be the reverse of the order in which the modes were
;; installed.  Perhaps there should be a feature to let you specify
;; orderings.

;;; Code:

(defun easy-mmode-define-keymap (keymap-alist &optional menu-name)
  "Return a keymap built from KEYMAP-ALIST.
KEYMAP-ALIST must be a list of (KEYBINDING . BINDING) where
KEYBINDING and BINDINGS are suited as for define-key.
optional MENU-NAME is passed to `make-sparse-keymap'."
  (let ((keymap (make-sparse-keymap menu-name)))
     (function (lambda (bind)
		 (define-key keymap
		   (car bind) (cdr bind))))

(defmacro easy-mmode-define-toggle (mode &optional doc)
  "Define a one arg toggle mode MODE function and associated hooks.
MODE-mode is the so defined function that toggle the mode.
optional DOC is its associated documentation.

Hooks are checked for run, each time MODE-mode is called.
They run under the followings conditions:
MODE-hook: if the mode is toggled.
MODE-on-hook: if the mode is on.
MODE-off-hook: if the mode is off.

When the mode is effectively toggled, two hooks may run.
If so MODE-hook is guaranteed to be the first.

This function defines the associated control variable, keymap,

DOC is the documentation for the mode toggle command.
Optional LIGHTER is displayed in the mode-bar when the mode is on.
Optional KEYMAP is the default (defvar) keymap bound to the mode keymap.
