This year I switched from vim to emacs. The reason is quite simple, I want to try different things, that’s all. Emacs is a highly configurable editor that you can use it to read emails, chat on irc, read pdf files, or whatever you can imagine. One of the most useful plugin is using
emacs-w3m to browse websites.
Emacs-w3m is an old package, luckily the latest package still functions well :D
This installation guide is mac specific, but you can replace the first command to other platform-specific package installer. I use Mac OSX 10.8, and the latest homebrew until May 15, 2013. In your shell, type in the following:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Then, in your
That’s all you need. :)
If you want to open url links in w3m from org files, you can use the following setting, reference to emacs wiki post.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
