lj-update hackery

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 12:48 PM

lj-compose now starts with the new buffer in auto-fill-mode, just the way I like it. Steps to achieve this worthy goal:

At the top of lj-write.el, define a variable to hold the hooks list:

(defvar lj-compose-hook nil 
    "Hooks to be called on lj-compose startup") 

Change lj-compose() to call our hooks:

(defun lj-compose (&optional profile)
  "Compose a LiveJournal update, using PROFILE."
  (switch-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*LiveJournal*"))
  (delete-region (point-min) (point-max))
  (or (eq major-mode 'lj-update-mode) (lj-update-mode))
  (lj--insert-initial-buffer-contents nil profile)
  (set-buffer-modified-p nil)
  ;; call our startup hooks 
       (lambda (x) (funcall x))

And add the hooks you want to the initialization files (.xemacs/init.el in my case):

(add-hook 'lj-compose-hook '(lambda () (auto-fill-mode t))) 

That’s all folks!
