As I said a few days ago, I switch my Emacs config files to Kieran Healy’s Starter Kit. I really liked the use of Org-mode for the config, and especially the LaTeX and RefTeX configuration. I still like Batsov’s Prelude, though, and there were certainly some things that I missed greatly.
This afternoon, I found Mike McFarland’s Emacs configuration online. He uses Prelude with a personal configuration in Org-mode. I have switched back, and brought in much of Kieran’s LaTeX configuration.
You can see the results here, although it’s not now as literate as I hope it will be.
