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)
(add-to-list ‘package-archives ‘(“melpa” . “http://melpa.org/packages/”))
Then restart emacs. Then do
then find the package that you want, hit enter, then install. It
installs it locally.
