To install this package, run in Emacs:
M-x package-install RET eev RET
Eev's central idea is that you can keep "executable logs" of what you do, in a format that is reasonably readable and that is easy to "play back" later, step by step and in any order. We call these "executable logs" _e-scripts_. These "steps" are mainly of two kinds: 1) elisp hyperlinks, and 2) lines sent to shell-like programs. To run the tutorial: install this package, then type `M-x eev-beginner'. This will load all the main modules, activate the eev-mode keybindings, and open this tutorial, http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-quick-intro.html (find-eev-quick-intro) in a sandboxed buffer. For a list of the other sandboxed tutorials, see: http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-intro.html (find-eev-intro) Note that the URLs point to the HTMLized versions of the sandboxed tutorials, and the `(find-*-intro)' sexps open them in Emacs. For a _non-technical_ description of what e-scripts are, see: http://angg.twu.net/escripts.html For an analysis of an e-script that uses most of the main features of eev, see: http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-escripts-intro.html#4 (find-escripts-intro "4. How to read an e-script") The home page of eev is: http://angg.twu.net/#eev EEV WITHOUT EEV-MODE ==================== Eev mode only activates some keybindings and adds a reminder saying "eev" to the mode line, as explained here: http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-intro.html#1 (find-eev-intro "1. `eev-mode'") It is possible to use eev's elisp hyperlink functions with eev-mode turned off: just put the point on a line with an elisp hyperlink and type `C-e C-x C-e'. If you want to load all the main modules of eev to make its functions available in this way, do: (require 'eev-load) then you can use `M-x eev-mode' to toggle eev-mode on and off when desired.
