Subject: df-mode.el

User-agent: Emacs Gnus


This is an rewritten version of df.el of Benjamin Drieu to display the
space that is left on a device to which a buffer will be written.
It's really useful if you're working with other users on partitions
that have the tendency of filling up (sometimes completely).

Changes from the original version:
- Added customization
- Completely rewrote internals (the actual "engine" has been simplified, but
  the customisation enhanced)
- The partitions that are checked are now buffer-local
- Added the function that checks before writing a buffer

Comments welcome.

;;; Commentary:

;;  This is an extension to display disk usage in the mode line.  Disk
;;  space remaining is updated every `df-interval' seconds.
;;  If you work with a lot of users sharing the same partition, it
;;  sometimes happens that you have no place left to save your work,
;;  which can be extremely annoying, and might lead to loss of work.
;;  This package allows you to have disk space available and buffer
;;  size displayed in the mode line, so you know when you can save
;;  your file or when it is time to do some tidying up.
;;  Comments and suggestions are welcome.
;;  df is simple to use:
;;  - Make sure this file is in your load-path
;;  - Put in ~/.emacs:
;;      (autoload 'df-mode "df-mode" nil t)
;;      (df-mode 1)
;;    The minor mode can be toggled with M-x df-mode.
