    @weeshy Yeah, probably el-get should have a way to automatically detect elpa installed packages, patches welcome...

    Hi. I am trying to get my recipe to run an elisp function to show introductory help/info when it is installed. I've tried :post-init with just the function and as a lambda. I'm a bit unsure about if :post-init is the correct way to accomplish this. Any pointers?
    Ok, I didn't mean to get those emoticons but :post-init ;-)
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    :post-init runs when the package is loaded. I don't think there is anything a recipe can do to run something just at install time

    my el-get/.loaddefs.el file somehow got trashed and i've been adding requires to my .emacs file to workaround it. but what is the correct solution? should i dump all of ~/.emacs.d/el-get/ and re-install all my packages?
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    @ironchicken M-: (el-get-invalidate-autoloads) RET should regenerate it from scratch
    Richard Lewis
    @ironchicken
    @npostavs thanks. that seems to have fixed it :-)

    Hi all, I got a problem on windows when I'm installing packages, sometimes I got a git submodule error
    Something like s failed to install: (error el-get: git submodule update Could not update git submodules)
    error in process sentinel: el-get-installation-failed: el-get: git submodule update Could not update git submodules
    error in process sentinel: el-get: git submodule update Could not update git submodules
    Anybody has hints?
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter there might be more detail in the *git pull: <package>* buffer
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    Let me check
    I got some message on git clone buffer
    fatal: 'submodule' appears to be a git command, but we were not
    able to execute it. Maybe git-submodule is broken?
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    hmm, sounds like it
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    On my cmd.exe I can use git submodule without a problem though
    How do I know what command el-get is executing? and which dir it's on?
    Anything I can turn on for debugging?
    I tried debug-on-error, not very helpful
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    You can try setting el-get-verbose
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    okay
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    Found the problem, it's using the wrong git.exe
    Is there a way I override the git el-get is using?
    Somehow it's not using the git in the path
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    @npostavs Thanks a lot for your help!
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter Does (el-get-executable-find "git") not give the right thing? It uses executable-find (which is based on exec-path) but you can override by setting el-get-git
    Ningyu Shi
    @CyberSnoopy_twitter
    No it does not
    It find the core git, instead of the wrapper
    "C:/Program Files/Git/mingw64/libexec/git-core/git.exe"
    It should be "C:/Program Files/Git/bin/git.exe"
    I'll override it.

    Hello, people!
    I am Anderson Torres, a future Law student with a passion for computers!
    I use Emacs for a while now. I have some fun configuring my init file(s).
    Normally I just use use-package.

    Now I want to test el-get.

    Anderson Torres
    @AndersonTorres_gitlab

    For now I have some doubts, it appears to be a bit scary...

    My first question:
    I want to install hardcore-mode, but it doesn't appear in the el-get-list-packages. In my old config, it comes from MELPA.

    Waht I need to do in order to obtain it from el-get?

    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    @AndersonTorres_gitlab (add-to-list 'el-get-sources '(:name hardcore-mode :type github :pkgname "magnars/hardcore-mode.el")) should do it
    Anderson Torres
    @AndersonTorres_gitlab
    @npostavs thanks!

    Usually I split my config in several files, one for each package or by some motivation ("the file load/ocaml-config.el loads various settings related to OCaml programming").

    I will try to understand how el-get can help me in that.

    @AndersonTorres_gitlab
    There is some formal process to contribute with new recipes, or just "do a pull request" suffices? I want to update a recipe for bar-cursor: the el-get one doesn't exist anymore (error 404), but there's a fork of it at Github.
    Noam Postavsky
    @npostavs
    just send a pull request
    Anderson Torres
    @AndersonTorres_gitlab
    Hello! Can I get some help?

    I want to create a "develop" branch (git branch develop) in my own tree, in order to test and in the future send pull requests.

    How can I configure emacs in order to use that develop branch, not master?

    Anderson Torres
    @AndersonTorres_gitlab
    Also, how can I do in order to point to my local tree, not the Github one?
