spacemacs – install spacemacs

install spacemacs is very simple.
make sure using emacs version >= 24.5

but the keypoint is to remove “.emacs” file.
it will force emacs to load config from “.emacs.d” folder.

in windows, %HOME% must be set to a path for .emacs.d

$ git clone ~/.emacs.d

> cd %HOME%
> git clone .emacs.d


on mac os, sometime lock file is very annoying.

every time you edit it, emacs will ask you to choose s,p,q,?,

check more details.

Here is code to make it work.
;; for mac os x
(setq auto-save-default nil)
(setq create-lockfiles nil)
