Getting started with Spacemacs
- Install Emacs version 26.3 (or greater).
- Clone or download the Spacemacs, first removing
~/.emacs.dif it already exists.
- Clone the practicalli/spacemacs.d configuration, or run the Spacemacs install wizard and follow the additional configuration section.
Use your favourite git client or the following command in a terminal window to clone the
develop branch of Spacemacs:
git clone -b develop https://github.com/syl20bnr/spacemacs ~/.emacs.d
Use Spacemacs develop branch until version 0.300 released
Many features in this guide are only available in the
develop branch of Spacemacs until version 0.300 of Spacemacs is released.
Clone Practicalli Spacemacs configuration
Open practicalli/spacemacs.d GitHub website and fork the repository to your own account (this makes it easier to save your own configuration).
Clone your fork of Practicalli Spacemacs configuration to
.spacemacs.d directory, substituting your own github account name for
my-github-account in the command below.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:my-github-account/spacemacs.d.git ~/.spacemacs.d
This configuration is used instead of
~/.spacemacs, so ensure no file of that name exists before running Spacemacs.
Spacemacs is ready for action
Spacemacs is now up and running and ready to take on the world.
