More Neat Stuff for your Emacs
Copyright (C) 1993, 1999, 2001-2014 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
See the end of the file for license conditions.
The easiest way to add more features to your Emacs is to use the command
M-x list-packages. This contacts the server at <URL:>,
where many Emacs Lisp packages are stored. These are distributed
separately from Emacs itself for reasons of space, etc. You can browse
the resulting *Packages* buffer to see what is available, and then
Emacs can automatically download and install the packages that you
select. See the section "Emacs Lisp Packages" in the Emacs manual
for more details.
Below we describe some GNU Emacs programs and resources that are
maintained by other people. Some of these may become part of the
Emacs distribution, or GNU ELPA, in the future. Others we unfortunately
can't distribute, even though they are free software, because we lack
legal papers for copyright purposes.
Also listed are sites where development versions of some packages
distributed with Emacs may be found.
It is difficult to keep this file up-to-date, and it only lists a fraction
of the Emacs modes that are available. If you are interested in
a particular feature, then after checking Emacs itself and GNU ELPA,
a web search is often the best way to find results.
* The gnu-emacs-sources mailing list
which is gatewayed to the gnu.emacs.sources newsgroup (although the
connection between the two can be unreliable) is an official
place where people can post or announce their extensions to Emacs.
* The `Emacs Lisp List' at
<URL:> has pointers
to sources of a large number of packages. Unfortunately, at the time
of writing it seems to no longer be updating.
The Emacs Wiki has an area for storing elisp files
* WikEmacs
<URL:> is an alternative wiki for Emacs.
* Emacs slides and tutorials can be found here:
* Maintenance versions of some packages distributed with Emacs
You might find bug-fixes or enhancements in these places.
In many cases, however, development of these packages has shifted to Emacs,
so you will find the latest version in Emacs.

* Gnus: <URL:>

* GNU Zile: <URL:>
A lightweight Emacs clone, for when you don't have room for Emacs proper.
* Packages and add-ons not bundled with Emacs
Various major packages or useful additions aren't distributed as part of
Emacs for various reasons, sometimes because their authors haven't made
a copyright assignment to the FSF. Some of them may be integrated in
the future.
Your operating system distribution may include several of these as optional
packages that you can install.
