Indexing My Emacs Init File
Since I keep all my emacs configuration in a single
.emacs file and in a hyper organised manner it means I have my init file split into different sections, for example :
with each section delimited by a comment of the form:
;; ;; -> platform` ;;
Now I am using
occur more often, then why not write a function to produce a nice little Occur buffer containing an index of my init file sections, as thus:
(defun my/index () (interactive) (beginning-of-buffer) (occur ";;[[:space:]]->"))
I avoided the self index reference by explicitly using the [:space:] variant for the occur regex.
and this gives me the following:
The selection of each item takes me to the relevant section of my emacs configuration and as I have f8 bound to
next-error I can easily step through each section if I want to.
