# Olivetti # A simple Emacs minor mode for a nice writing environment. Screenshot: https://f002.backblazeb2.com/file/pwr-share/olivetti.png ## Features ## - Set a desired text body width to automatically resize window margins to keep the text comfortably in the middle of the window. - Text body width can be the number of characters (an integer) or a fraction of the window width (a float between 0.0 and 1.0). - Interactively change body width with: olivetti-shrink C-c [ [ [ ... olivetti-expand C-c ] ] ] ... olivetti-set-width C-c \ - If olivetti-body-width is an integer, the text body width will scale with use of text-scale-mode, whereas if a fraction (float) then the text body width will remain at that fraction. - Optionally remember the state of visual-line-mode on entry and recall its state on exit. Olivetti keeps everything it does buffer-local, so you can write prose in one buffer and code in another, side-by-side in the same frame. For those looking for a hardcore distraction-free writing mode with a much larger scope, I recommend writeroom-mode: https://github.com/joostkremers/writeroom-mode. ## Requirements ## - Emacs 24.5 ## Installation ## Olivetti is now part of GNU ELPA and can be installed with: M-x package-install RET olivetti RET ## Contributing ## To report bugs, please use M-x report-emacs-bug RET or send an email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
