artbollocks-mode.el is an Emacs minor mode for avoiding cliches and bad grammar when writing about art (or other topics).


Place artbollocks-mode.el in a directory on Emacs' load-path, and add the following to your .emacs file:

(autoload 'artbollocks-mode “artbollocks-mode”)

If you wish artbollocks-mode to be loaded automatically, add the following to your .emacs file immediately after the autoload statement:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'artbollocks-mode)

Manual Usage

If you do not add the add-hook statements to your .emacs file, you will have to enable artbollocks-mode manually by typing the following in Emacs:

M-x artbollocks-mode

NOTE: If you manually enable artbollocks-mode, you might need to force re-fontification initially. To do so, type the following in Eamcs:

M-x font-lock-fontify-buffer

Art Bollocks Mode highlights those pesky weasel words that slip into writing.

To load it automatically, add this to your ~/.emacs.d/init.el or ~/.emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path “/wherever/you/extracted/artbollocks-mode”) (require 'artbollocks-mode) (add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'artbollocks-mode)
