Following on from last week’s post here’s a couple of Spacemacs related things I’ve come across since then.

Jekyll layer

I write this blog using Jekyll, so I’ve added a Jekyll layer to make managing posts a bit easier. You need to add it as a private layer, and it acts as a wrapper around Hyde with some Spacemacs key bindings.


Spacemacs comes with a dotspacemacs-major-mode-leader-key variable, which defaults to ,. This acts as a shortcut to access the major mode SPC m commands. However, I didn’t know about this when I setup Spacemacs and remapped my leader key to ,. Consequently, when I tried to schedule an item in org mode I couldn’t work out why it didn’t schedule the item but opened a new email with my whole org file in it as HTML :thinking:

To get around this I’ve updated my .spacemacs file and set dotspacemacs-major-mode-leader-key nil in dotspacemacs/init.
