Building MELPA Packages Locally

| Comments

Don’t want to wait for the MELPA packages to be automatically rebuilt? Want to try out some package recipe before submitting it upstream? You can totally do this!

Just clone the MELPA github repo, open a recipe from it in Emacs and press C-c C-c (bound to the command package-build-current-recipe). Once the package is built you’ll be prompted to install it.

Pretty neat, right?
