Lightweight clone of the Emacs editor using Guile

GNU Zile is a lightweight clone of the Emacs editor, and Zile-on-Guile is a variant of Zile that can be extended in Guile Scheme. Hitting M-C (or: Alt and C) brings up a Guile REPL from which interactive functions akin to those of Emacs can be invoked.


Install the latest version of zile-on-guile as follows:

guix install zile-on-guile

Or install a particular version:

guix install zile-on-guile@2.6.2-0.fd09781

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
