Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Provides greater integration with emacs.
Description[edit | edit source]
This module is designed to allow greater integration between emacs and sawfish. Using
emacs-eval you can run emacs lisp, with
emacs-edit you can have emacs pop up a frame to edit a file, or (if it's already displayed) pop you to that window. It's meant to be fairly open-ended; have fun.
NOTE: This is designed to work with emacs version 23 (i.e., emacs-snapshot) because it uses the daemon-mode support which is new with emacs 23.
Installation[edit | edit source]
Just put it in your lisp directory and:
Configuration[edit | edit source]
You may want to take a look at the
emacsclient-path, and the
emacs-check variables to see if they should be adjusted. Then you're free to set up whatever key bindings or whatever that you wish. A few examples:
To start emacs with hyper-shift-t:
(define-command 'emacs (lambda () (emacs-run "t" 'frame))) (bind-keys global-keymap "H-T" 'emacs)
To have sawfish prompt for a file to edit with emacs on hitting hyper-f:
(define-command 'edit emacs-edit #:spec "FEdit file:") (bind-keys global-keymap "H-f" 'edit)
For a more complicated use of this script to start or switch to gnus, see the page on App.
Another option, if you have Prext, will prompt you with a list of emacs buffers to switch to:
(bind-keys global-keymap "H-F" '(prext-menu (emacs-buffers-menu) "Emacs buffer:"))
There's also a
emacs-call-info function which will open an emacs frame to browse the requested info document. So, for example, if you have this in your
(setq help-display-info-function emacs-call-info)
the help menu will give you access to the info documents via emacs.
