Change Log of lin (lin.el)
The newest release is at the top. For further details, please consult the manual: https://protesilaos.com/emacs/lin.
Version 0.3.0 on 2022-04-08
- Changed the source repository from GitLab to SourceHut: https://git.sr.ht/~protesilaos/lin. Use the mailing list to start a discussion, report a bug, send a patch, etc.: https://lists.sr.ht/~protesilaos/lin. The GitLab URL will serve as a mirror from now on (a GitHub mirror is still available and will remain that way).
Introduced a buffer-local minor mode as well as its global equivalent:
lin-global-mode. This makes it easier to set up Lin in user init files and/or toggle it on demand. The following shows how the package can be used:
(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) (setq lin-mode-hooks '(bongo-mode-hook dired-mode-hook elfeed-search-mode-hook git-rebase-mode-hook ibuffer-mode-hook ilist-mode-hook ledger-report-mode-hook log-view-mode-hook magit-log-mode-hook mu4e-headers-mode notmuch-search-mode-hook notmuch-tree-mode-hook occur-mode-hook org-agenda-mode-hook tabulated-list-mode-hook)) (lin-global-mode 1)
lin-facenow has a custom setter which automatically updates its appearance in all buffers where
lin-modeis enabled. Users might thus prefer to set its value with
customize-set-variablein order to find the style they like the most. Otherwise setting the value with
setqis just fine for stable configurations. If, in that case, the user wants to update the face, they must invoke
revert-bufferor equivalent (e.g. type
gin Dired with the default key bindings) or evaluate the function
- The user option
bongopackage). Its default value is shown in the sample code above.
Version 0.2.0 on 2022-03-16
Rewrote the entirety of
lin.el to make the configuration easier and
keep the code streamlined. The gist is that now Lin automatically
hl-line-mode in every mode implied by
is how Lin should be set up henceforth:
(require 'lin) (setq lin-face 'lin-blue) ; check doc string for alternative styles (lin-setup) ; Either run this or change `lin-mode-hooks' (customize-set-variable 'lin-mode-hooks ; do not use `setq' with this; `customize-set-variable' runs `lin-setup' automatically '(dired-mode-hook elfeed-search-mode-hook git-rebase-mode-hook ibuffer-mode-hook ilist-mode-hook ledger-report-mode-hook log-view-mode-hook magit-log-mode-hook mu4e-headers-mode notmuch-search-mode-hook notmuch-tree-mode-hook occur-mode-hook org-agenda-mode-hook tabulated-list-mode-hook))
The manual has been updated to reflect those changes: https://protesilaos.com/emacs/lin.
- Christian Tietze for showing how the Lin face can use colors from the
macOS palette. The original contribution was in merge request 2:
https://gitlab.com/protesilaos/lin/-/merge_requests/2. Now we
lin-mac-override-fgfaces. These can be assigned as a value to the user option
- Damien Cassou for suggesting that Lin sets itself up for a list of
mode hooks. The original contribution was in merge request 3:
https://gitlab.com/protesilaos/lin/-/merge_requests/3. It has now
been rewritten as the
lin-mode-hooksuser option, though the idea is the same.
- Federico Stilman for adding
mu4e-headers-modeto the list that Damien had provided and which now lives as
lin-mode-hooks. Federico's contribution was sent as a patch via email.
