The package provides a key binding method that can work effectively only for a Lisp-like language: Elisp, Scheme, Common Lisp and Clojure all fit here. The gist is that e.g. "j" will not self-insert when positioned at open paren or after closing paren, but will instead move downwards list. On top of that I've tacked on: - my own type of Paredit: most functions are called from either side of the list and the result depends on the side. - region manipulation based on sexps, e.g. "j" will extend/shrink region by a sexp forwards and "k" backwards. - outline-minor-mode bindings `lispy-shifttab` ("I") actually uses `org-overview` and `org-cycle`. - IDE-like features (eval, eval-and-insert, inline doc, arglist, jump-to-tag and follow-to-definition) - some refactoring support (defun-to-lambda, lambda-to-defun, inline-function, cond-to-ifs, ifs-to-cond, sexp-to-oneline, sexp-to-multiline, string-to-oneline) I'm especially proud of the cond-to-ifs / ifs-to-cond stuff, because they (in theory and once properly debugged) preserve whitespace and comments and are invertible. - misc stuff (bindings for edebug, multiple cursors, ediff-sexps) I'm quite fond of `lispy-ediff-regions` as well. Try it if you like `ediff-regions-linewise`. So it's a bunch of stuff, all of it Lisp-related, hence "lispy". Btw, here's the new documentation: http://abo-abo.github.io/lispy/. It's generated with org-mode export of this file: https://raw.github.com/abo-abo/lispy/gh-pages/index.org. Actually, I have a few questions on the org to HTML export of this document: How do I make HTML links that refer to heading, e.g. not http://abo-abo.github.io/lispy/#sec-3-1, but http://abo-abo.github.io/lispy/#lispy-forward? And is there a good method to put babel source blocks into a HTML table? I'm just using #+HTML: at the moment and it's pretty ugly. regards, Oleh
