  • 08:38 UTC (new) 2018-11-19 Font-locking diff blocks in Org-mode . . . . Marcin Borkowski I sometimes miss a feature in Emacs where I could make a diff of two files (using Emacs built-in dired-diff command, bound to = in Dired, or abo-abo’s diff trick, which I have bound to e in Dired), but have the diff persist (as in, save it to a file). Technically, I can do this, of course, by just calling write-file and saving it to a file (preferably with a .diff extension so that it will open in Diff mode automatically), but sometimes I prefer to save things in my Org-mode file, along with my notes related to the project I’m working on. It turns out that Org-mode has me covered, although there is one minor caveat here.



  • 21:13 UTC (new) 2018-11-11 Poland gained independence 100 years ago . . . . Marcin Borkowski Today we [[|again]] [[|depart]] from the usual topics of my blog. We have a very important day today in Poland – [[|one hundred years ago my country gained independence]] after more than a hundred years of political nonexistence.



  • 14:46 UTC (new) 2018-10-27 Launching terminal in current directory . . . . Marcin Borkowski I am a bit ashamed that I do not always use Eshell – I sometimes rely on a “proper” bash in a terminal. (One possible reason is when I ant to run something that does not play too well with Eshell, like top or watch. I know it is possible to do that in Eshell, using eshell-visual-commands, but it seems I’m too lazy (or still too much accustomed to my usual terminal) to change that. Anyway, it is feasible to want to run a terminal (or any other program) in the current directory from Emacs. It turns out that it is easy to do using async-shell-command.
