Emacs configuration in github

When you have applications, whose configuration is as complex as that of Emacs it’s always a good idea to store that configuration under version control so you can easily share it between multiple computers. You can always set up some version control system yourself, but it’s a lot more convenient (and much more reliable) to use an already existing code hosting solution such a GitHub. I have created a small repo there housing my humble Emacs configuration(.emacs, some custom stuff) and this way I can easily access it on all the computers that I happen to be working on.


At some point my custom configuration grew into what is known today as the Emacs Prelude.
