Getting started with Spacemacs
With Emacs 25.1 installed, simply clone or download the Spacemacs configuration, first moving any existing
~/.emacs.d Emacs configuration out of the way.
Use your favourite git client or the following command in a terminal window:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/syl20bnr/spacemacs ~/.emacs.d
Then run Emacs as normal. Spacemacs will start installing a few key packages and then go on to ask you how you want your Spacemacs.
