Emacs as a command line tool
Emacsc(1) is a wrapper of emacsclient(1) for use within a terminal, which helps use Emacs more as command line tool than just a standalone environment.
usage: emacsc [-cdgkn] [-s NAME] [-e EXPR | -x EXPR | -f FUNC] [FILE..] -h, --help show this help -d, --daemon run Emacs as daemon and quit -k, --kill kill Emacs daemon -g, --no-tty do not prefer tty -c, --create-frame create a new frame -n, --no-wait do not wait and return immediately -s, --socket-name=NAME specify the file name of the socket file name for communication -e, --eval=EXPR evaluate the Lisp expression EXPR and print the result without a frame opened -x, --execute=EXPR interactively execute the Lisp expression EXPR -f, --funcall=FUNC interactively call the Lisp function FUNC
This command is a wrapper of emacsclient for use within a terminal. It adds the -t option so that Emacs opens a new frame on the current terminal, making the command itself suitable as a value for EDITOR.
A byte-compiled initialization file is automatically removed before running Emacs if outdated, i.e. older than the original file.
In order for the -x and -f options, and the following commands to work, install lisp/emacsc.el into a directory in your load-path and add this to your ~/.emacs.d/init.el:
Or install emacsc from an ELPA package and you are good to go.
Dired(1) is a frontend command to invoke dired.
usage: dired [directory|file]
It takes a directory or a file name, defaulted to the current directory, to open with dired. If a non-directory is given, the point will be automatically moved to the file on startup.
Ediff(1) and ediff-merge(1) are frontend commands to invoke ediff functions.
usage: ediff file1 file2 usage: ediff-merge local remote base merged ediff-merge local remote merged
These commands depend on emacsc(1) and ediff-batch.el. Put the following line in your Emacs initialization file in addition to the one above for emacsc if you do not install emacsc from an ELPA package:
To use them from Git, put the following lines in your ~/.gitconfig.
[diff] tool = ediff [difftool "ediff"] cmd = ediff \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\" [merge] tool = ediff [mergetool "ediff"] cmd = ediff-merge \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\" \"$BASE\" \"$MERGED\"
Evil(1) is a command to edit given files in evil-local-mode.
usage: evil [-s NAME] FILE.. -h, --help show this help -s, --socket-name=NAME specify the file name of the socket file name for communication
Magit(1) is a frontend command to invoke magit-status.
usage: magit [directory]
It runs magit-status on a given directory. If omitted, ask where with the current directory as default.
