Simple manager for Emacs Lisp packages in GentooPosted: 2008-05-18
Before, I used the site-gentoo.el file, which loaded all of them at startup time. However, that results in a pretty much bloated piece of software.
So today, I decided to try my luck with Emacs Lisp. The result is site-load-manager.el. It’s a simple script that, given a config file, will create a byte-compiled equivalent of Gentoo’s site-gentoo.el that include only those packages whose names include strings defined in the config file. To speed-up things a little, instead of referencing the scripts in site-lisp directory, it includes them directly
The archive contains script, simple shell script to execute it and example config file. I think that it should be pretty easy to understand, although config file mechanism isn’t very good :-)
