The popular Mac editor iA Writer (https://ia.net/writer/mac/) has many nifty features that I rather like. So far, I've been able to recreate the look and feel for the most part -- except for the typewriter-style scrolling that keeps the current line centered in the window. Any ideas on how to implement this?

centered-cursor-mode Makes the cursor stay vertically in a defined position (usually centered). The vertical position can be altered, see key definition below. http://melpa.org/#/centered-cursor-mode

(use-package centered-cursor-mode)

and then add (centered-cursor-mode) to your org hook.

  • This mode is incompatible with automatic line wrapping.
