Recently I've been setting up an org-mode file in emacs which holds my entire "init.el" to run emacs from. As its all quite stable now and working well, I'm putting it up here in case others want to try something similar.

Installation instructions

* installation Instructions
Then copy it into =~/.emacs.d/org/init.org=.

# - *If you are using Mac OS X, remove every line containing the word
#   =xclip= in this file* (you may also be interested in reading 
# [[file:../blog/2014/05/15/emacs_and_orgmode_on_macosx.org][this blog entry]]).
# - Otherwise, you should consider installing xclip (=sudo apt-get
#     install xclip= in a shell and =M-x package-install= the =xclip= package
#   within emacs) as it will ease interactions with emacs when running
#   in a terminal.

# My ~/.emacs.d/init.el file contains only:
# --8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# ;;; -*- emacs-lisp-mode -*- --- init file
# ;;; mine from 12-11-2014

# (package-initialize)
# (require 'ob-tangle)
# (org-babel-load-file "~/.emacs.d/org/init.org")

# (provide 'init.el)
# ;;; init.el ends here
# --8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
# (require 'org)
# ;; Load the actual configuration file
# (org-babel-load-file
#   (expand-file-name (concat user-emacs-directory ".emacs.d/org/init.org")))

Then do =M-x org-babel-load-file= (=M-x= means pressing =Alt= and =x=
simultaneously to get the emacs prompt that allows you to call emacs
functions, also remember you can press =Tab= to activate auto
completion) and provide =~/.emacs.d/init.org=. This should evaluate
every piece of emacs-lisp code available here.

Next time, simply reload changes with "C-c i". If some stuff does not
work (in particular in the org-mode website generation section or in
the tabs section), just comment them and proceed.

Being asked to type in yes explicitly all the time gets very
tedious. I understand that it is safer since y is much easier to
type in accidentally than yes and so the potential to say yes to
things you don't want is there, but I haven't had any such problems
yet.

One thing that you must be aware of is to NOT put this file in "~/.emacs.d/" because if you do it will overwrite your basic "init.el" when it is tangled, think 'compiled', which starts emacs off!

You also need to put "ob-tangle.el" into "~/.emacs.d/" along with 'init.el' so that it all works. Once its all in place, then just start emacs the same way that you usually do, and watch it all appear as if by magic! :)

I use "gnus" to deal with my email, and that configuration is set up right at the end of my "init.org" and quite happily sits there just waiting to be called for use.

When I first started setting it all up, it was very daunting, moving from something that I knew worked, to something that I wasn't sure about, and neither did I really understand how it would work! But now its been up and running for several weeks I feel quite comfortable with it all.

Yes, it has blown up in my face, with emacs totally refusing to load my setup, and I couldn't see why not! That required about four hours just patiently going through it line by line, and examining for anything! Typos, missing closing brackets, too many brackets, new command-line errors it was showing me that I hadn't seen before! I eventually found that the problem lay in a block of code that I'd just put in, and which when commented out allowed emacs to run properly. I learnt then to time-stamp each block of code that I inserted which would help in finding any future problems.

Now, emacs is extremely stable, as is gnus, and its working more as I want it to, without so much unnecessary commented out code. I still try out new snippets of code, but I'm far more wary of it, and if it looks like it won't fit in my scheme of things, then I just leave it alone and don't put it in.

I hope its useful for you and that you have fun setting it all up. I know that I have and feel much more comfortable with my setup now
