Emacs Lisp: Bionic Reading 🚀
here's a command to bold the first half of letters of every word in buffer or region.
put this in your Emacs Init File:
(defvar infu-bionic-reading-face nil "a face for `infu-bionic-reading-region'.") (setq infu-bionic-reading-face 'bold) ;; try ;; 'bold ;; 'error ;; 'warning ;; 'highlight ;; or any value of M-x list-faces-display (defun infu-bionic-reading-buffer () "Bold the first few chars of every word in current buffer. Version 2022-05-21" (interactive) (infu-bionic-reading-region (point-min) (point-max))) (defun infu-bionic-reading-region (Begin End) "Bold the first few chars of every word in region. Version 2022-05-21" (interactive "r") (let (xBounds xWordBegin xWordEnd ) (save-restriction (narrow-to-region Begin End) (goto-char (point-min)) (while (forward-word) ;; bold the first half of the word to the left of cursor (setq xBounds (bounds-of-thing-at-point 'word)) (setq xWordBegin (car xBounds)) (setq xWordEnd (cdr xBounds)) (setq xBoldEndPos (+ xWordBegin (1+ (/ (- xWordEnd xWordBegin) 2)))) (put-text-property xWordBegin xBoldEndPos 'font-lock-face infu-bionic-reading-face)))))
