Emacs Redux

Return to the Essence of Text Editing


My name is Bozhidar. I’m an Emacs zealot (and a software engineer) from Bulgaria.

I happen to maintain a few Emacs-related projects:

  • Prelude - An Emacs distribution built on top of GNU Emacs
  • Projectile - Project Interaction Library for Emacs, that stays out of your way
  • clojure-mode - A major mode for programming in Clojure
  • CIDER - A Clojure programming environment for Emacs
  • inf-clojure - Basic interaction with a Clojure subprocess
  • guru-mode - An annoying companion on your journey to Emacs mastery
  • rubocop-emacs - Emacs integration for RuboCop
  • zenburn-emacs - The Zenburn color theme, ported to Emacs
  • solarized-emacs - The Solarized color theme, ported to Emacs
  • super-save - Save your buffers when they lose focus
  • crux - A collection of useful Emacs extensions
  • puppet-mode - A mode for editing Puppet 3 manifests
  • swift-mode - A mode for editing Swift code
  • grizzl - A fuzzy search index & completing-read for Emacs

I was also the original maintainer of WikEmacs - a community documentation portal for Emacs.

If you like my projects you can support their development via Patreon, Liberapay or PayPal.

Why does Emacs Redux exist?

While many people consider Emacs (and vim for that matter) a remnant of the Dark Ages of computing, we (the crazy Emacs devotees) know better! It’s time to bring Emacs under the spotlight once more and showcase its unique advantages over the more “traditional” (conventional) text editors and integrated development environments.

In this blog, dedicated to the One True Editor, I’ll be sharing with you useful tips and tricks to make your experience with Emacs more productive and more enjoyable.
