Sometimes I feel lonely. As many of you know, I keep my emacs configuration in a single
init.el file1. Almost all the Emacs hackers that I respect have a complicated Emacs configuration split among multiple files.
Finally, I've found someone who agrees with me. Donald Curtis, also known as Milkypostman, the proprietor of the Melpa archive, has a post in which he advocates keeping your Emacs configuration in a single file. His configuration is well organized and easy to navigate. It shows, I think, how a single-file Emacs configuration can be easier to use and navigate than an equivalent multi-file version. You mileage may vary, of course, but at lease I don't feel so lonely.
Whatever you predilections for Emacs configurations, you should take a look at Milkypostman's post. He's got some good ideas (such as his
after macro) that are useful no matter how many files you have in your configuration.
1 Actually I have separate files for OS- and machine-specific configurations that get loaded when Emacs starts on a particular machine or OS.
