So I have a package I would like to add from an ELPA repository different than MELPA. The repository is called "billpiel" and the link is http://billpiel.com/emacs-packages/. I would like to add the package
sayid to a layer (specifically the clojure layer, though that is unimportant). How would I do this in spacemacs?
I've tried adding this line to the top of the layer file, to my
user-init method and to the
dot-spacemacs/layers method (I know, I shouldn't):
(add-to-list 'configuration-layer--elpa-archives '("billpiel" . "http://billpiel.com/emacs-packages/")) and then installing the sayid package as an additional package but that didn't work.
Trying to add the package as
(sayid :location "http://billpiel.com/emacs-packages/") also failed.
The package documentation is here: https://bpiel.github.io/sayid/. How can I add this package to a layer in a way that I can distribute the layer?
