Open in external editor: emacs

edited December 2020 in The Archive

I am taking the red pill...

The first hangup is that "open in emacs" seems to only work if emacs isn't already running, and so only works for one file. My understanding, having used emacs years ago, is that you should use the emacsclient command-line tool to open files (located under the bin path when you open the Emacs.app package resource). I don't see a way to add that in The Archive though: TA seems to expect a .app file.

So, how can I use "open in emacs" from The Archive to open multiple files in succession?


  • Well I found one answer: use Doom emacs. I'm not sure what it's doing, but it apparently has whatever configuration is required to work nicely with "open in..."
