Using Nammu and Emacs for Oracc work

Nammu is a simple text editor, written especially for Oracc by UCL's Research Development Software Group [http://www.ucl.ac.uk/research-it-services/research-software-development], that enables all content creators to edit ATF files, one file at at time. Use Nammu if your main role in Oracc is to edit texts for a corpus project. Emacs is a high-powered text editor which, while not particularly pretty, is extremely useful for editing multiple ATF files at once, managing glossaries projects, and writing ESP portals. For now, use Emacs for activities that involve these tasks. In due course Nammu will gradually replace all of Emacs functionality.

On these pages we discuss:

Working with Nammu
Here we describe how to install and set up Nammu, and how to edit ATF files with it.
Preparing to work with Emacs
On this page we describe how to obtain, install and configure it for Oracc work.
Starting to use Aquamacs (Emacs for Mac)
Here we give a short description of some features that we have found useful for editing and lemmatising ATF in Aquamacs (Emacs for Mac), apart from those provided by atf-mode.
Starting to use EmacsW32 (Emacs for PC)
Here we give a short description of some features that we have found useful for editing and lemmatising ATF in EmacsW32 (Emacs for Windows), apart from those provided by atf-mode.
Working with ATF in Emacs using atf-mode
An Emacs major mode is available which makes editing ATF files a bit easier and gives access to the template generator and checker.
