emacs config

qorg's Emacs config

This is my Emacs configuration. Hope you like it.


Just copy this repository to your .emacs.d. Nothing else is needed.


  • I can

  • I don't like doom emacs

  • I don't like spacemacs

  • I don't want to learn doom emacs

  • I don't want to learn spacemacs

  • I don't like Vim

About me

Here I set variables about personal information i'll use later in this config.

(setq name "qorg11")
(setq email "")
(setq website "")


The only no emacs related dependence in this configuration is the IBM Plex Mono font. Install it from your distribution packages. You can change it before opening Emacs with this configuration for the first time.

For irony-mode (C autocompletion) irony-sever must be installed. You can install it with M-x irony-install-server or via distribution's packages, in Debian case, apt install irony-server. Using M-x irony-install-server requires cmake and a lot of dependences I'm to lazy to install.


Yeah, this configuration file has a configuration, ironic ha?

(setq i-just-use-emacs-to-be-cool nil) ;; Repleace to true to use EVIL

melpa crap, and basic packages installation

melpa, where you get the packages. This also installs use-package, and other packages I use.

  (require 'package)
  (let* ((no-ssl (and (memq system-type '(windows-nt ms-dos))
                      (not (gnutls-available-p))))
         (proto (if no-ssl "http" "https")))
    ;; Comment/uncomment these two lines to enable/disable MELPA and MELPA Stable as desired
    (add-to-list 'package-archives (cons "melpa" (concat proto "://")) t)
    ;;(add-to-list 'package-archives (cons "melpa-stable" (concat proto "://")) t)
    (when (< emacs-major-version 24)
      ;; For important compatibility libraries like cl-lib
      (add-to-list 'package-archives '("gnu" . (concat proto "://")))))

  (if (< emacs-major-version 27)
  (unless (package-installed-p 'use-package)
    (package-install 'use-package))

Generic packages

Here I install some packages that don't need configuration. Remember to run M-x all-the-icons-install-fonts after the first init to install the fonts.

(use-package markdown-mode
:defer 1
:ensure t)
(use-package web-mode
:defer 1
:ensure t)
(use-package magit
:defer 1
:ensure t)
(use-package all-the-icons
:defer 1
:ensure t)
(use-package which-key
:ensure t
:init (which-key-mode))


C-c n for indent-buffer. I don't use the rest.

  (setq-default tab-width 5)
  (defun indent-buffer ()
  (indent-region (point-min) (point-max) nil)))
  (global-set-key (kbd "C-c n") 'indent-buffer)


Probably this overwrites another keybinding. But since I overwrited it. I don't think i'd ever use the overwritten.

  (global-set-key (kbd "C-c n") 'cleanup-buffer)
  (global-set-key (kbd "M-m") 'mark-whole-buffer)
  (use-package sudo-edit
  :ensure t
  :defer 1
  (global-set-key (kbd "C-x C-r") 'sudo-edit-find-file))

No idea

(setq package-enable-at-startup nil) (package-initialize)

(put 'upcase-region 'disabled nil)

Emacs customization, Here is where most of the configuration is.

Disable bars font and pandoc export optxions.

Basic customization. I also use smex instead of default M-x. I don't like heml

(scroll-bar-mode -1)
(tool-bar-mode -1)
(menu-bar-mode -1)
(set-frame-font "Terminus 18" nil t)

 (use-package smex
 :ensure t
 :defer 1
(global-set-key (kbd "M-x") 'smex))

 (setq-default major-mode 'text-mode)

Space to - (Like normal M-x)

(defadvice smex (around space-inserts-hyphen activate compile)

(let ((ido-cannot-complete-command
`(lambda ()
(if (string= " " (this-command-keys))

Highlight matching parentheses

(setq show-paren-style 'mixed)

(setq gc-cons-threshold most-positive-fixnum)
(defun startup/reset-gc () (setq gc-cons-threshold startup/gc-cons-threshold))
(add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook 'startup/reset-gc)

Open pdf using zathura

I don't know how necessary this is. But I use it when working with pandoc and that kind of crap.

(defun open-pdf()
(setq file (buffer-substring (mark) (point)))
(shell-command (concat "zathura " file "&")
;; Borders
(set-face-attribute 'fringe nil
:foreground (face-foreground 'default)
:background (face-background 'default))


org-mode is a markup language which has a lot of stuff (This config file is written in org-mode.

Relative lines

Flycheck is a syntax validator or somehting like that

(use-package flycheck
:ensure t
(add-hook 'after-init-hook #'global-flycheck-mode))


This basically opens zathura when compiling with auctex (C-c C-a)

(with-eval-after-load 'tex

Company and Irony

Some shit for autocompletion and that kind of shit.

  (use-package company

  (with-eval-after-load 'company

Idk what to name this

Here I put things you can do in M-x or something idk

(blink-cursor-mode 0)
(global-hl-line-mode 0)
(setq-default cursor-type 'block)

Programming language things


Parentheses highlight in lisp modes. So you can easily identify them.

  (use-package rainbow-delimiters
  :ensure t
  (add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook 'rainbow-delimiters-mode)
  (add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook 'rainbow-delimiters-mode)
  (add-hook 'scheme-mode-hook 'rainbow-delimiters-mode))


Cperl-mode is better than perl-mode. You can't change my mind.

(defalias 'perl-mode 'cperl-mode)


This use c-eldoc mode so it prints the function's prototype in the minibuffer. Which is very useful since Irony works when it wants to.

(use-package c-eldoc
:ensure t
(add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'c-turn-on-eldoc-mode))
(setq c-default-style "k&r")


Erc is an irc client that is used inside emacs. Here I configure it.

(setq erc-default-server website)
(setq erc-nick name)

Now, erc is annoying as shit for default servers. So here i define a few functions to quickly connect to them

  (defun erc/freenode ()
    (erc :server "" :nick "qorg11"))
  (defun erc/rizon ()
    (erc :server "" :nick "qorg11"))
  (defun erc/kill9 ()
    (erc :server "" :nick "qorg11"))

Extra functions

Here I put functions I won't bother to document because they're so simple.

  (defun git-pushall ()
    (shell-command "git pushall"))

  (defun kill-inner-word ()
    (forward-word 1)
    (kill-word 1))
  (global-set-key (kbd "M-C-k") 'kill-inner-word)


For some reason, there is no ispell spanish in void linux. so i had to fallback to hunspell. which does the same.

  (defvar ispell-program-name "hunspell") ;; Or whatever you use
                                          ;; (ispell, aspell...)


Ahhh, the emacs file browser, better than ranger and others…

Hide dotfiles:

  (use-package dired-hide-dotfiles
    :ensure t

    (defun my-dired-mode-hook ()
      "My `dired' mode hook."
      ;; To hide dot-files by default

      ;; To toggle hiding
      (define-key dired-mode-map "." #'dired-hide-dotfiles-mode))

    (add-hook 'dired-mode-hook #'my-dired-mode-hook))

Highlight identation

yeah i need it lol

  (use-package highlight-indent-guides
      :ensure t
      (add-hook 'prog-mode-hook 'highlight-indent-guides-mode)
      (setq highlight-indent-guides-method 'bitmap))

kill ring popup

(use-package popup-kill-ring
:ensure t
:bind ("M-y" . popup-kill-ring))


(add-hook 'dired-mode-hook
   (lambda ()


Ido is a replacement for keybindings such as C-x C-f and C-x b. Here I rebinded C-x C-b to ido-switch-buffer because I always press C-x C-b instead of C-x b

Since for some reason the regular ido-vertical stopped working, i had to use a fork i found in github, so that's why i use (load) instead of (use-package)

(load "~/.emacs.d/ido-vertical.el")
(setq ido-enable-flex-matching nil)
(setq ido-create-new-buffer 'always)
(setq ido-everywhere t)
(ido-mode 1)
(ido-vertical-mode 1)
(setq ido-vertical-define-keys 'C-n-and-C-p-only)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-x C-b") 'ido-switch-buffer)


Dashboard. You can change ~/.emacs.d/img/logo.png own logo instead of Lain.

(use-package dashboard
:ensure t
(setq dashboard-items '((recents  . 5)
(bookmarks . 5)))
(setq dashboard-startup-banner 'logo)
(setq dashboard-banner-logo-title "Welcome to Editor MACroS")
(setq dashboard-startup-banner "~/.emacs.d/img/banner.txt")
(setq dashboard-set-heading-icons t)
(setq dashboard-set-file-icons t))
