The Starter Kit provides a more pleasant set of defaults than you get normally with Emacs. It was originally intended for beginners, but it offers a nicely augmented working environment for anyone using Emacs.

Basic setup[edit]

You'll need Emacs 24, which comes with package.el. It's not hard to compile from source, but precompiled versions are readily available for Debian-based systems, Mac OS X, and Windows.

If you need to maintain compatibility with Emacs 23 or 22, you need to use version 1.

Add Marmalade as a package archive source in ~/.emacs.d/init.el:

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("marmalade" . "http://marmalade-repo.org/packages/") t)

Evaluate that code by hitting M-x eval-buffer in init.el, then you can install it:

M-x package-refresh-contents

M-x package-install RET starter-kit RET

Helpful keybindings[edit]
