You get a menu with recently edited files without any configuration. Later, use “ssho” as usual to add the manjal back. No installation, no setup needed. If you select ‘?

Aquamacs (Pete’s notes)

Use the command “ssh-add -D”. This is beautiful – comments in C, Java, Perl or shell scripts are all the same color. Experiment, changing one face color at a time and restarting Aquamacs to see the results. Finally, Aquamacs makes use of the capabilities of windows on modern graphical user interfaces. Aquamacs additionally activates a number of packages aquamscs are provided with the default emacs, such as cua-base, ibuffer, recentf.

Aquamacs creates files named “. If you want to experiment with Lisp programming, you’ll probably want to open a lisp file like init. For example, when you use ZTerm and capture a switch console session, ZTerm writes a file with just CRs at the end aquamacw each line. Look it up with C-H V and follow the “customize” link. A faster way is to use the face-list. When I did this, it said “Searching for program, no such file or directory, lisp”.


To set the default font for all buffers, do M-x customize-face and type in default. Aquamacs loads these files at startup, if they exist, in this order bold ones exist in my environment, others don’t: On the remote system, I have to disable color highlighting in the “ls” command.

Gtypist is a program to help you learn to type. You can individually set each mode’s font, but there are some you can’t set.

The Emacs for the Mac

Later, when the file is written, Emacs converts its internal representation back to the one it detected when the file was opened.

It looks terrible in a proportional font. If the remote system prompts for a one-time-password, as nagman does, you’re screwed. Aquamacs offers a range of proportional and mono-spaced fonts to choose from. The next time Aquamacs tries to modify the file, Aquamacs will hang with the spinning wheel of death.

These fonts are nicely rendered with antialiasing. To see a list of faces and the way they are currently set, do M-x list-faces-display. Aquamacs can organize the files that you’re editing in tabs. When you use “Save As” in Apple Mail. If I want to bind that to a key some day, the key should be C-c C-v.

Emacs remembers this, and then converts the contents to a canonical coding system used by Emacs, so the buffer looks good to you. Then use “aquamacs” to start it. Edit the file and change all occurrences of “my-color-theme” to “Petes-color-theme”. Printing just works the way you expect it to – with a preview and through the normal printing infrastructure.

Since html-helper-mode doesn’t indent well, you can call an external “tidy” program to indent the buffer.

I did local-set-key, which was fine. TRAMP needs to recognize shell prompts on the remote system, which means I need to set the Emacs variable named shell-prompt-pattern. To set the background color, see below in the “Background colors” section. Then aquamavs can use the weird syntax see next paragraph to open the file.


Aquamacs: Emacs for Mac OS X

I didn’t like html-helper-mode at first, but I’m stuck with it. When you do this in Aquamacs the first time, Aquamacs will display a message in the minibuffer suggesting that you install an enhanced Lisp-mode named SLIME.

This sucks for programming languages, obviously. A work-around is to modify the config of the smbd server. Features Downloads Support Development. For help understanding html-helper-mode, see Keybindings for html-helper-mode version 1.

Click on the little oval at the upper-right part of the window. When I run cisl-irving: To change the coding system, use C-x RET f or set-buffer-file-coding-system and set it to “unix”. Here are some features that Aquamacs has to offer on top of all the advantages that come with Emacs:.

Then save the buffer, and the file will look good in Terminal. Emacs shares the colors of things that are common across programming languages. Like the little window that pops up when you run ediff.

I tried to set the default by following theses instructions in the Aquamacs FAQ:. Your donations keep this project alive. Trouble is, it didn’t work.

Aquamacs is compatible with GNU Emacs.
