I'm writing a syntax highlighting mode for emacs, and wondering if there is a way to improve my workflow.
Currently I do this:
- make edits to
- restart emacs
- eval buffer
- open a file with the language to see the changes
Is there a way to quickly display the results of syntax mode changes, preferably without having to reload emacs?
My font faces are defined using
(defface... like so:
(defface my-lang-comment-face '((t (:inherit font-lock-comment-face))) "comments" :group 'my-lang)
Should I be using
setq instead during development, then change it to
defface when it's "done"?
