Users of Emacs can customize variables and faces without writing Lisp code, by using the Customize interface. See Easy Customization in The GNU Emacs Manual. This chapter describes how to define customization items that users can interact with through the Customize interface.
Customization items include customizable variables, which are defined with the
defcustom macro; customizable faces, which are defined with
defface (described separately in Defining Faces); and customization groups, defined with
defgroup, which act as containers for groups of related customization items.
