03 January 2016 Emacs highlight-symbol-mode

Been a fan of highlight-thing-mode. It automatically highlights all instances of symbol at point. Today, I gave highlight-symbol a try. Similar concept, but also adds the ability to jump to next/previous instances of symbol at point.

(use-package highlight-symbol :ensure t
  :config
  (set-face-attribute 'highlight-symbol-face nil
                      :background "default"
                      :foreground "#FA009A")
  (setq highlight-symbol-idle-delay 0)
  (setq highlight-symbol-on-navigation-p t)
  (add-hook 'prog-mode-hook #'highlight-symbol-mode)
  (add-hook 'prog-mode-hook #'highlight-symbol-nav-mode))
