Provides a quick way to launch an ssh session in an ansi-term with directory tracking pre-configured. This makes opening remote files via TRAMP directly from the ssh session as easy as C-x C-f.
It is strongly recommended to install tramp-term with
package.el (included in
emacs 24+). A package is currently available on available on MELPA.
Add the following to your init file to make tramp-term available:
Only one command is provided. Run it to be prompted in the minibuffer for a user (optional) and host to connect to:
A list of hosts will be provided for auto-completion. These hosts are taken from the configuration in ~/.ssh/config.
Once the ssh session has been established simply open files as you would in a
normal ansi-term or shell buffer with
As you change directories, emacs'
default-directory will be kept in sync,
including the TRAMP syntax to open the remote files.
tramp-term-after-initialized-hook- Hook called after tramp-term has been initialized on the remote host. Hooks should expect a single argument which contains the hostname used to connect to the remote machine.
Currently tramp-term only supports bash shells on the remote host.
This would be pretty easy to extend but could be tricky to make
configurable since both users and hosts would have to be taken into
account. If you'd like this, take a crack at it and submit a pull
request. The bash specific code lives in
To make this work generically,
tramp-term--initialize would have to
dispatch to different initialization functions based on the
configuration. Here is an example of that function that works with
(defun tramp-term--initialize (hostname) "Send bash commands to set up tramp integration." (term-send-raw-string (format " alias precmd 'echo \"\\033AnSiTu\" \"$USER\"; echo \"\\033AnSiTc\" \"$PWD\"; echo \"\\033AnSiTh\" \"%s\"' clear " hostname)))
