Contributing

Your contributions are always welcome! Please submit a pull request or create an issue to add a new package, library or software to the list.

Before contributing, please read this tiny guideline:

The Order of Items

Please don’t rearrange the package ordering without any reason! The items should be sorted by its popularity ( roughly, because it’s impossible to have a precious standard. e.g. most of people would use it; recommended for every newbie…), instead of your personal preference.

For example, Evil is obviously not a package that every Emacser needs. So please don’t move it onto the top of its category.

In contrast, if you think a package is recommended for every Emacser (especially for a newbie), just place it at a higher place in the list.

Emacs Built-In Packages

If a package is available in the latest version of Emacs, please remember to add a [built-in] tag in the front of the description.

Generate “Table of Contents”

After you have added a package or edited the README.org, and before committing and issuing a pull request on this awesome list, use gen-toc.el to update the Table of Contents.

Open gen-toc.el and M-x eval-buffer. Then change buffers to README.org. Subsequently, issue M-x awesome-emacs-gen-toc in the README.org buffer. If a new category of packages has been added in your commit, the Table of Contents section will be revised and updated.
