In my new short video, I introduce the basic idea behind my live-scripting open source project which I host on GitHub. Live-Scripting is an approach that combines command line centric work, documentation, and sharing. This video clip demonstrates how smooth the process of command line work and documentation can be. Using the example of retrieving information from remote machines and creating a report, this clip introduces how easy this technique is and gives an idea, how powerful it can be. Emac users can use these basic techniques directly with only little configuration. The necessary steps are described on the project -website in the chapter “Basic Live-Scripting”. This is even possible if Emacs is used in a terminal without GUI.
In Emacs Org mode, you can create spreadsheets and also make calculations. The Spreadsheet tool is of course not as powerful as Excel, but it is enough for quick calculations. For example, you can use it to calculate the cost of a trip. In my Youtube channel, I published a short video demonstrating this feature. It compares two scenarios of a business trip regarding their costs.
