emacs

Some notes regarding my emacs usage. Mostly for my future self, but if you find anything useful feel free to take it!

Including dot diagrams with org-babel

Add dot to the list of src lang modes

(add-to-list 'org-src-lang-modes (quote ("dot" . graphviz-dot)))

Include the diagram in any document

#+BEGIN_SRC dot :file diagram.png
digraph G {
        main -> parse -> execute;
        main -> init;
        main -> cleanup;
        execute -> make_string;
        execute -> printf
        init -> make_string;
        main -> printf;
        execute -> compare;
}
#+END_SRC

Disable confirmation of dot evaluation

When generating the contents in an unattended mode it's good to let emacs know that it's fine to evaluate the dot contents. We can avoid the confirmation by setting:

(setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)
