git clone 'git://'


Just fold the active region, please.

How it works

The command fold-this visually replaces the current region with .... If you move point into the ellipsis and press enter or C-g it is unfolded.

You can unfold everything with fold-this-unfold-all.

You can fold all instances of the text in the region with fold-this-all.


It is available on marmalade and Melpa:

M-x package-install fold-this

Or just dump it in your load path somewhere and (require 'fold-this)


I won't presume to know which keys you want these functions bound to, so you'll have to set that up for yourself. Here's some example code, which incidentally is what I use:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c C-f") 'fold-this-all)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c C-F") 'fold-this)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c M-f") 'fold-this-unfold-all)

If you want to make sure that a mistype doesn't fold anything when your region is deactivated, you can use fold-active-region and fold-active-region-all instead.

You can customize the visuals of the folded region by changing fold-this-overlay face.
