After reading this post I started using
desktop.el as a simple project
file-like system. The only problem was that remembering which desktops
were where and switching between them is bothersome. This module tries
to fix that.
If you have Marmalade set up you can just use:
M-x package-install <RET> desktop-registry
To switch between desktops you can use
desktop-registry-change-desktop, this will prompt (with completion)
for the directory you would like to load.
When you’re done with a desktop or want to get rid of a desktop for
another reason you can use
If you’ve registered a desktop and you don’t like what it made of
the name you can use
desktop-registry-rename-desktop to give it a
Adding new desktops
You can use
desktop-registry-add-directory to add a new directory
to the registry, or
desktop-registry-add-current-desktop to add the
currently loaded desktop to the registry. With either of these
function you can use the universal argument (
C-u) to specify a
name for the desktop as well.
If you enable
desktop-registry-auto-register it will automatically
add new desktop files to the registry when you use
desktop-registry-current-desktop can be used to insert the
currently loaded desktop into an org capture template.
(add-to-list 'org-capture-templates '("t" "Task" entry nil "* TODO %? :%(desktop-registry-current-desktop \"\"):"))
