I was reading through:

Spacemacs Colors Layer

because I want to get nyan-mode working using the hot keys SPC t m n as shown on Github.

I was able to do this part:

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You  
will need to add **colors** to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-
layers list in this file.

However I do not understand how to enable it.

where does

(setq-default dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '(
  (colors :variables colors-enable-nyan-cat-progress-bar t)))

go? I see nothing in my .spacemacs for it or am I missing how to do this completely?


Please (re)-read the FAQ and DOCUMENTATION.

But to add custom layers look for the following lines in your .spacemacs configuration file:

(defun dotspacemacs/layers()
         ;; git
         ;; company
         (colors: variables colors-enable-nyan-cat-progress-bar t)

Note that there could be text in between hence the ellipses "..."

  • Thanks. The documentation is pretty confusing in regards to packages. Probably because there is so much you can do with them. – codingdraculasbrain Feb 21 '17 at 22:56
