How can I add packages into emacs on the cluster?

From Brian Caffo (our resident emacs expert):

Here’s the steps if someone wants a package installed on emacs (for themselves)

module load emacs (or whatever)

Add these to .emacs (increases the packages that can get accessed)

(require ‘package)
(add-to-list ‘package-archives ‘(“melpa” . “”))

Then restart emacs. Then do

M-x package-list-packages

then find the package that you want, hit enter, then install. It
installs it locally.
