To install this package, run in Emacs:
M-x package-install RET olivetti RET
Olivetti is a simple Emacs minor mode for a nice writing environment. Features -------- - Set a desired text body width to automatically resize window margins to keep the text comfortably in the middle of the window. - Text body width can be the number of characters (an integer) or a fraction of the window width (a float between 0.0 and 1.0). - Interactively change body width with: `olivetti-shrink' C-c [ [ [ ... `olivetti-expand' C-c ] ] ] ... `olivetti-set-width' C-c \ - If `olivetti-body-width' is an integer, the text body width will scale with use of `text-scale-mode`, whereas if a fraction (float) then the text body width will remain at that fraction. - Optionally remember the state of `visual-line-mode' on entry and recall its state on exit. Olivetti keeps everything it does buffer-local, so you can write prose in one buffer and code in another, side-by-side in the same frame. For those looking for a hardcore distraction-free writing mode with a much larger scope, I recommend writeroom-mode: <https://github.com/joostkremers/writeroom-mode>. Requirements ------------ - Emacs 24.5 Installation ------------ Olivetti is now part of GNU ELPA and can be installed with M-x package-install RET olivetti RET. Bugs ---- To report bugs, please use `M-x report-emacs-bug RET` or send an email to <email@example.com>. Please include "olivetti" in the subject. Hints ----- To always use a different width for a specific file, set a File Variable specifying `olivetti-body-width': M-x add-file-local-variable RET olivetti-body-width RET 66 RET See (info "(emacs) File Variables").
