Searching the Web with engine-mode—02 Mar 2015
I probably spend about 75% of my programming time looking up documentation. That’s really easy in Emacs Lisp—my documentation is built into my editor—but in most other languages I’m not so lucky.
I wrote engine-mode to help fix this problem. It’s a simple minor mode that lets me define arbitrary search engines and send snippets of text to them from within Emacs. Now I don’t have to copy and paste text between my browser and editor! So fancy.
We’ll be talking about how to get started with engine-mode (it’s easy!) and then digging into the implementation and discussing the process of committing a package to MELPA.
