A World of Emacs and Python

Shakthi Kannan (~shakthi)


GNU Emacs is a very popular text editor written in C and Emacs Lisp. It can be run on different platforms, and is easily customizable and extensible to the users' needs. It has wonderful support for doing Python development, and a number of packages are available to help boost programmer's productivity. I would like to demonstrate the same with numerous examples, including using Org-mode for doing DevOps work.

An outline is as follows:

  • Editing features

  • Interactive mode

  • Literate DevOps

  • Testing

  • Documentation
