I am trying to really learn how to use GNU Emacs. One thing that strikes me is how the Emacs user interface can be thought of as a client application to an Emacs Lisp API. This is not a revolutionary thought, but it really stuck in my head. I reread the official tutorial, focusing on the functions rather than the keybindings that invoke them.
The first function is obviously the one to get the tutorial started.
|C-h t||Launch the Emacs learn-by-doing tutorial|
Then I spent a couple days with liberal usage of
describe-function to better understand what the tutorial was describing.
It was helpful.
Now I just want to organize those notes and post them on the blog.
Or I could /post/2014/05/elisp-functions-described-in-the-emacs-tutorial[dump the list] onto a blog post.
