I've been using Emacs as my primary editor for around 5 years. Over that time I've installed plenty of packages and tweaked numerous settings. There are some packages that I use daily, but others have sat in the background, unused and unloved.

Over the next few weeks I'll be exploring some of those lesser-used packages and learning what they have to offer.

The packages are currently on my list to explore:

Project interaction library. Lots of functionality for moving around projects.
Live web development for Emacs. It can update web pages without reloading them and also features a JavaScript REPL.
Adds auto-complete functionality.
Snippet expansion library.
Major mode for editing HTML. Can handle plenty of template languages.

I'll be updating this list with links to each post.
