ponylang-mode: An emacs mode for editing Pony code

“Pony is an object-oriented, actor-model, capabilities-secure, high performance programming language.” - ponylang.org

ponylang-mode is an Emacs mode for editing Pony code.

Right now the mode is very new and immature. This is my first time writing an editing mode, so it probably has all sorts of issues. Let me know, provide patches, etc…I'm very happy to accept contributions and feedback!


You can install ponylang-mode via melpa. The fundamental way is with package-install:

M-x package-install ponylang-mode

Then just make sure you (require ponylang-mode) at some point in your initialization.


Right now ponylang-mode doesn't take a lot of configuration (i.e. it's too simple to need any). If you want to make sure your indentation matches that in the ponyc project's examples, you can use something like this:

  (lambda ()
    (set-variable 'indent-tabs-mode nil)
    (set-variable 'tab-width 2)))

Using use-package

If you're using the excellent use-package to manage your configuration, you can use something like the following to install and configure ponylang-mode:

(use-package ponylang-mode
  :ensure t
     (lambda ()
       (set-variable 'indent-tabs-mode nil)
       (set-variable 'tab-width 2)))))
