Göktuğ's Elisp Stuff


Table of Contents


This is the website for Göktuğ’s Emacs Lisp stuff. Some of the programs here are published on Melpa. All of the source code is available at the source code repository.

What’s here

Below is a listing of all the programs here:


«forecast.el» is a weather forecast report generator, currently using data from Dark Sky (but I plan to add other backends in the future).


«Paper» is a little, minimal emacs theme that is meant to be simple and consistent.

It was first intended to resemble the look of paper, but has diverged from that objective. Still, though, I keep calling it Paper, as I like that name.

Paper uses a small colour palette over all the elements. Org headings are specially treated with a palette of equidistant colours. The colours and heading font sizes are calculated using base and factor values which can be edited. See source.

It’s most adapted for ELisp-Org users, as I’m one such user, though it works fine with Markdown, Textile, Python, JavaScript, Html, Diff, Magit, etc.


«pass-listing» is a simple frontend to the pass utility. It uses the functions from password-store.el.


«bsdpkg» is an Emacs interface to FreeBSD pkg(1). It’s planned to genericise the package to support all *BSD packaging systems, and the module is written with that sort of extensibility in mind.

This is experimental, and kind-of obsoleted as I don’t use BSD at the moment. I’d be happy to accept changes or to hand it over if anybody will be interested.


«bibliothek.el» is a personal PDF library manager. Presently it only displays a concatenated tabular list of PDF files from many locations, and allows to open the files or view metadata from that list. Find below a screenshot of the default view. I intend to add some functionality for moving PDF files around and editing the metadata.


«gk-unilat» is a unified input method for European variants of the Latin alphabet.

It aims to provide comprehensive support for typing characters found in different European versions of the Latin alphabet, in a unified, predictable way.


«gk-greek» is a transliterating input method for modern Greek.

Translates input in Greek latinization into Greek alphabet. Mappings are based on vocal correspondence and common modern transliteration.


«org-variable-pitch.el» is a minor mode that enables ‘variable-pitch-mode’ in the current Org-mode buffer, and sets some particular faces up so that they are are rendered in fixed-width font. Also, indentation, list bullets and checkboxes are displayed in monospace, in order to keep the shape of the outline.


This package provides a macro named $ where in its body symbols in the form $N where N is a positive integer are to stand for positional arguments to the generated lambda.

If the car of the body is a vector though, that vector becomes the argument list of the new lambda.

Some examples:

($ (message "Hello, %s" $1))
(funcall ($ (* $1 $1)) 2)
(reduce ($ [a b] (concat a b)) (list "hel" "lo"))
