Super-save 0.3

| Comments

After a long period of no development activity (mostly because it was perfect from the start), super-save gets an update today!

The latest 0.3 version of your favourite auto-saving library makes it easier to customize the hook triggers (see super-save-hook-triggers) and adds an option to ignore remote (TRAMP) files (see super-save-remote-files).

As a refresher - super-save will save modified files automatically on certain command (e.g. switch-to-buffer) and hook triggers (e.g. focus-out-hook).

Both of those are configurable via super-save-triggers and (starting with 0.3) super-save-hook-triggers. Here are a couple of examples:

;; add integration with ace-window
(add-to-list 'super-save-triggers 'ace-window)

;; save on find-file
(add-to-list 'super-save-hook-triggers 'find-file-hook)

You can now turn off super-save for remote files like this:

(setq super-save-remote-files nil)

It seems that now super-save is beyond perfect, so don’t expect the next release any time soon! ;-)

P.S. super-save was extracted from Prelude, but for some reason I actually forgot to add it to Prelude. Today that changes as well! :-)
