I released Excorporate 1.0.0 recently and declared the API stable. I was careful not to break API compatibility throughout Excorporate’s development so the API version stays the same at “0”. The project is now in a state where it does everything I want it to do, API-wise. The UI is still missing features like meeting […]
I finished getting Excorporate and all its dependencies into GNU ELPA. Excorporate lets Emacs retrieve calendar items from an Exchange server. I had to rewrite the default UI to use Org Mode, because Calfw isn’t entirely copyright-assigned to the FSF yet. The Calfw UI is still there for reference, but as a text file so […]
I use Emacs Unified Directory Client (EUDC) for completing email addresses from LDAP and BBDB databases. It’s nice to be able to complete names from LDAP when composing emails, obviously, but it’s also nice in Org mode to M-x eudc-expand-inline someone’s name into my notes. When I first configured the EUDC LDAP backend for my […]
Here is Excorporate version 0.6.0. New in this release: – Support for overriding settings autodiscovery by manually configuring an EWS URL – A check to prevent soap-client conflicts with other packages – Handle email@example.com/autodiscover.domain.com autodiscovery case – Support for Exchange 2013 (via the new API addition, exco-server-version) Thanks to everyone who tested autodiscovery on the […]
I use Exchange at work for calendaring. I also use terminal-mode emacsclient when I’m logged in from another machine. In that scenario I can’t easily open a web browser to use Outlook Web Access. It annoyed me that I couldn’t check my schedule from within a terminal Emacs session. Thus, I did the only sensible […]
At work I have cause to edit a TWiki that my team uses for internal documentation. I wanted to use Emacs for this task, so that I wouldn’t need to interact with a web browser text area widget. I couldn’t find anything that did that, so I took the closest thing I could find, erin.el, […]
I started experimenting with Emacs’s SVG capabilities and ended up writing a game. Presenting: Emacs Slime Volleyball! It’s a clone of the great Slime Volleyball applet I used for IcedTeaPlugin testing. Try it out!
At work I make heavy use of the GNU Emacs mode serial-term to interface with various target boards. The boards all run U-Boot with a 5 second autoboot timeout. I often want to power-cycle a group of boards, then stop them all at the U-Boot prompt before they autoboot. It’s a race to C-x b […]
