Eev @ EmacsConf2019

Title:
How to record executable notes with eev - and how to play them back

Abstract:
In the old times we would take notes about a task - think on
fieldnotes - by using paper notebooks. Nothing was automatic then: we
had to decide what to write and how to write it, we had to switch
between "task" and "notes", we had to learn how to write both readably
and concisely, and we had to learn how to switch between task and
notes without losing focus. Learning these things usually took years.

In this talk I will present a package called "Eev" that lets us do a
modern version of this. Some of its lowel-level modules implement
support for many kinds of elisp hyperlinks and a variant of
`isend-mode' called `eepitch' that lets us select an interpreter and
send lines of the current buffer to it; on top of that it has tools
that let us create and modify elisp hyperlinks with very few
keystrokes. I will show 1) how to use the elisp hyperlinks and eepitch
blocks in already existing notes, 2) how to create elisp hyperlinks
and eepitch blocks with very few keystrokes, 3) how to use this to do
"task"+"notes" with just a few more keystrokes than we would use to do
just "task", 4) how I've been using this to teach Emacs to total
beginners.
