2 Install

2.1 Layer

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add japanese to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

2.2 Configuration

For a basic configuration, add this to your ~/.spacemacs inside dotspacemacs/user-config:

2.2.1 evil-tutor-ja

By default, the variable evil-tutor-working-ja-directory is assigned ~.emacs.d/.tutor-ja.

2.2.2 migemo

By default, the variable migemo-dictionary is assigned /usr/local/share/migemo/utf-8/migemo-dict. If you want it to be another directory, you must re-set the variable. For example, if you install cmigemo using

sudo apt-get install cmigemo

in ubuntu, you should add:

(eval-after-load "migemo"
  (setq migemo-dictionary "/usr/share/migemo/utf-8/migemo-dict"))

inside dotspacemacs/user-config.

2.2.3 helm-with-migemo

If you want to use helm with migemo, you should add:

(with-eval-after-load "helm"
  (helm-migemo-mode 1))

inside dotspacemacs/user-config. Note that you may find in a package called helm-migemo.el in MELPA. However, this package is deprecated and not supported by helm.

2.2.4 avy-migemo

By default, you can use migemo for avy.el. For ivy.el, you should add:

(require 'avy-migemo-e.g.ivy)

inside dotspacemacs/user-config. For swiper.el, you should add:

(require 'avy-migemo-e.g.swiper)

inside dotspacemacs/user-config. For counsel.el, you should add:

(require 'avy-migemo-e.g.counsel)

inside dotspacemacs/user-config.

2.2.5 ddskk

You can write a configuration file ~​/.skk. For detailed configuration, see some documents.

2.2.6 pangu-spacing

By default, pangu-spacing-mode is applied to text-mode. If you prefer the mode globally, add:

(global-pangu-spacing-mode 1)

inside dotspacemacs/user-config.

3 Key bindings

By default, C-x j toggles skk-mode.
