Re: [Orgmode] Easier customization of TODO keyword colors

Hi Ryan, hu everyone,

this code (an extended version of it) has now been integrated into Org.
It allows you to set fonts for TODO keywords, tags, and priorities in this way. And you can use the variable `org-faces-easy-properties' to make these colors specify the background rather tan the foreground color - something I like for my TODO keywords.

Thanks Ryan! Next stop will be using your level indentation cycling function.
Just make sure the FSF papers get through.... :-)

Here is some code I came up with some code to make it easier to customize the colors of various TODO keywords. As long as you just want a different color and nothing else, you can customize the variable org-todo-keyword-faces and use just a string color (i.e. a string of the color name) as the face, and then org-get-todo-face will convert the color to a face, inheriting everything else from the standard org-todo face.

To demonstrate, I currently have org-todo-keyword-faces set to
(("IN PROGRESS" . "dark orange")
("WAITING" . "red4")
("CANCELED" . "saddle brown"))

Here's the code, in a form you can put in your .emacs.

(eval-after-load 'org-faces
    (defcustom org-todo-keyword-faces nil
      "Faces for specific TODO keywords.
This is a list of cons cells, with TODO keywords in the car and
faces in the cdr.  The face can be a symbol, a color, or a
property list of attributes, like (:foreground \"blue\" :weight
bold :underline t)."
      :group 'org-faces
      :group 'org-todo
      :type '(repeat
               (string :tag "Keyword")
               (choice color (sexp :tag "Face")))))))

(eval-after-load 'org
    (defun org-get-todo-face-from-color (color)
      "Returns a specification for a face that inherits from org-todo
 face and has the given color as foreground. Returns nil if
 color is nil."
      (when color
        `(:inherit org-warning :foreground ,color)))

    (defun org-get-todo-face (kwd)
      "Get the right face for a TODO keyword KWD.
If KWD is a number, get the corresponding match group."
      (if (numberp kwd) (setq kwd (match-string kwd)))
      (or (let ((face (cdr (assoc kwd org-todo-keyword-faces))))
            (if (stringp face)
                (org-get-todo-face-from-color face)
          (and (member kwd org-done-keywords) 'org-done)
