Beautiful Emacs – A Roundup of Posts
April 9, 2009 by Jared
As most emacsers probably know, emacs 23 allows you to use anti-aliased fonts, in effect making emacs beautiful and even more of a pleasure and a joy to use. Dagobart recently wrote a post, explaining how to set this up on Linux.
I’ve seen a few posts like this before, ever since version 23 was in alpha so I thought it would be a good opportunity to do a quick roundup.
Way back at the start of 2007, Alexandre Vassalotti packaged up an early version of emacs23. Later on he updated it.
Oscar Bonilla wrote posts on how to prettify emacs for OS X and later on for Windows. The rather excellent EmacsW32 package is now based on a build of Emacs 23.
Dagobart’s post references these Linux setup instructions at sevenever.
And I should note that if you are a fan of muse + htmlize then you need the patched version of htmlize as vanilla 1.34 does not work with emacs 23.
