Emacs: lin version 0.4.0

Lin is a stylistic enhancement for Emacs’ built-in hl-line-mode. It remaps the hl-line face (or equivalent) buffer-locally to a style that is optimal for major modes where line selection is the primary mode of interaction. In concrete terms: (i) let your theme use a subtle gray to highlight the current line in text-editing buffers like Org, and (ii) render the current line with a more prominent colour in Dired, Ibuffer, et cetera. Why? Because the two types of interaction have different requirements about how intensely the current line should be highlighted.

Sample configuration:

(require 'lin)

(setq lin-face 'lin-blue) ; check doc string for alternative styles

;; You can use this to live update the face:
;;
;; (customize-set-variable 'lin-face 'lin-green)

;; This is the default value
