Parinfer layer

Table of ContentsClose


1. Description

This layer provides an implementation of parinfer, a lisp editing paradigm that controls indentation based on parentheses or vice versa.

1.1. Features:

  • Automatic management of parenthesis in clojure, emacs lisp, common-lisp and scheme following the parinfer editing paradigm.
  • Powered by a native library in the background

2. Install

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

3. Configuration

This package comes preconfigured to auto install the native library in your cache directory. If this is not desired set the variables parinfer-auto-download to nil and set parinfer-library to the path of your local installation. This mode uses the new smart-mode instead of the indent-mode traditionally used with parinfer. For the autoinstallation curl is required to be in your path.

If you still want to manually configure it please check the respective package repo here.
