Open in Emacs.app

A very quick, still incomplete adaptation of Dr. Drang's "Open in BBEdit" button for the Finder toolbar.

This works with the Homebrew's Cocoa build of Emacs.


  1. Download and drag into your Finder toolbar
  2. Select file(s), click button, see files open in new frames in your Emacs app. If you'd rather they open in new buffers, add this to ~/.emacs:

(setq ns-pop-up-frames nil)


  • wait for things to break because this was done very quickly
