Edit with Emacs

Alex Bennée yesterday released the latest version of “Edit with Emacs” to the Google Chrome web-store.

This nifty tool allows Emacs' users to “edit text areas on the browser” using this flexible editor.

I’m using it, for instance, to write this little announcement.

Find “Edit with Emacs” at the Google Apps store.

Following the link will install it in Chromium. It will also put a copy of edit-server.el in your

~/.config/chromium/Default/Extensions/..../ directory

Read this edit-server.el file for some suggestions to get it started. For example, to open pages for editing in new buffers in your existing Emacs instance:

(when (require 'edit-server nil t)
  (setq edit-server-new-frame nil)
