Updated tangotango emacs color theme

EDIT : This post is now quite deprecated. Installation instructions and new versions are posted on the github project page.

I just updated my original ”tangotango” emacs color theme, based on the tango palette colors. I’ve tweaked some details and moved the source code to github. Here are updated installation instructions and screenshots :

Installation instructions

  1. Download and install the color-theme emacs package either via your linux distribution or via the source tarball
  2. Download and install color-theme-tangotango.el from github
  3. Make sure that both color-theme.el and color-theme-tangotango.el are in your load path

There are several ways to load the tangotango color theme from your .emacs, as documented on emacswiki. The way I currently use should work for a daemonized emacs and allows the selection of different themes for GUI or console based frames :

(require 'color-theme)
(setq color-theme-load-all-themes nil)

(require 'color-theme-tangotango)

;; select theme - first list element is for windowing system, second is for console/terminal
;; Source :
(setq color-theme-choices 
      '(color-theme-tangotango color-theme-tangotango))

;; default-start
(funcall (lambda (cols)
    	   (let ((color-theme-is-global nil))
    	      (append '(if (window-system))
    		      (mapcar (lambda (x) (cons x nil)) 

;; test for each additional frame or console
(require 'cl)
(fset 'test-win-sys 
      (funcall (lambda (cols)
    		 (lexical-let ((cols cols))
    		   (lambda (frame)
    		     (let ((color-theme-is-global nil))
		       ;; must be current for local ctheme
		       (select-frame frame)
		       ;; test winsystem
			(append '(if (window-system frame)) 
				(mapcar (lambda (x) (cons x nil)) 
    	       color-theme-choices ))
;; hook on after-make-frame-functions
(add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions 'test-win-sys)


Note that I also had to add a (color-theme-tangotango) line at the end of my .gnus file in order to apply the color theme to Gnus.


Here is a screenshot of the color theme with an emacs-lisp file :

Tangotango dark emacs color theme

UPDATE : This entry is deprecated ! Source code has been moved to Github and installation instructions have been rewritten.

I always have used the default Emacs color theme, with a white background. Recently I wanted to switch to a dark background but didn’t find a color scheme taht I’d like enough to use, so Is tarted to create one myself. In fact I started with the tango color theme on EmacsWiki, modified a bit, and added some faces to support gnus and org-mode as I use them a lot.

The result is a color theme named tangotango whose code is the following :

(defun color-theme-tangotango ()

     ((background-color . "#2e3436")
      (background-mode . dark)

Obviously you need to install and configure the color-theme Emacs extension to use it. You will find instructions on the dedicated EmacsWiki page. The setup I use is the following :

(require 'color-theme)
(setq color-theme-is-global t)
(setq color-theme-is-cumulative t)
(setq color-theme-load-all-themes nil)


(add-hook 'message-mode-hook 'color-theme-tangotango)
(add-hook 'gnus-article-mode-hook 'color-theme-tangotango)

(add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions
	  (lambda (frame)
	    (set-variable 'color-theme-is-global nil)
	    (select-frame frame)
	    (if window-system

Here is a screenshot of the color theme with an emacs-lisp file :

Utiliser Mozilla Firefox pour ouvrir les liens sous Emacs/Gnus

La commande utilisée sous Emacs (et donc sous Gnus) pour ouvrir et afficher le contenu d'url contenues dans des documents ou des mails est à définir sous la forme d'une fonction à rattacher à la fonction browse-url-browser-function. Il existe un cetain nombre de fonctions par défaut, mais aucune pour Mozilla Firefox (en tous cas pour ma version d'Emacs, la 21.3.1). Grâce à EmacsWiki et à Google Groups, j'ai pu bricoler une fonction qui permet d'ouvrir le lien dans un nouveau tab si une instance de Firefox tourne déjà, et de lancer le navigateur sinon.

A priori ça fonctionne pour Firefox 0.9 et au-delà. Voici le code à rajouter dans votre .emacs :

(defun browse-url-firefox-new-tab (url &optional new-window)
  "Open URL in a new tab in Firefox."
  (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "URL: "))
  (let ((cmd (shell-command-to-string
              (concat "mozilla-firefox -a firefox -remote 'openURL("
                        url ",new-tab)' > /dev/null"))))
    (unless (string= "" cmd)
      (message "Starting Firefox...")
      (start-process (concat "firefox " url) nil "/bin/sh" "-c" 
               (concat "mozilla-firefox " url "|| true"))
      (message "Starting Firefox...done"))))
(setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-firefox-new-tab)

Lire des fils RSS avec Gnus

Gnus (le lecteur de news mail et autres sous Emacs) sait tout faire, ça n'est pas nouveau. Il sait aussi lire des fils d'informations au format XML-RSS, mais la marche à suivre indiquée dans la documentation ne fonctionne pas chez moi. Celle-ci suggère de créer un nouveau groupe à l'aide des touches G R, mais chez moi ça débouche sur un message d'erreur :

No such newsgroup: nnrss:xxxxxxxxxx

Une autre méthode qui semble fonctionner est de créer le groupe dans un premier temps à l'aide de G m, de choisir un nom et indiquer nnrss comme 'From method'. Ensuite, à la première ouverture du nouveau groupe, Gnus vous demandera l'url du fichier RSS, et le tour est joué !
