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. The URL aboves points to an HTMLized version of the sandboxed tutorial, and the `(find-*-intro)' sexp opens it in Emacs. You can find an index of the other sandboxed tutorials here: http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-intro.html (find-eev-intro) The home page of eev is: http://angg.twu.net/#eev Autoloads ========= Eev handles autoloads in a very atypical way, explained in these three places: http://angg.twu.net/eev-current/eev-load.el.html#autoloads http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-install-intro.html#7.3 http://angg.twu.net/eev-intros/find-eev-intro.html#4 (find-eev "eev-load.el" "autoloads") (find-eev-install-intro "7.3. Autoloads") (find-eev-intro "4. The prefix `find-'") If you load eev in one of these three ways 1. `M-x eev-beginner' 2. (require 'eev-beginner) 3. (require 'eev-load) then everything will work. If you try to use a package that tries to bypass autoloads - say, by loading the file that seems to contain the definition of `eev-foo' when you try to run `M-x eev-foo' - then lots of things will break. =( 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' to execute it. To load all the main modules of eev to make its functions available to be used in this way, do this: (require 'eev-load) then you can use `M-x eev-mode' to toggle eev-mode on and off when desired.
