{{Package|name=Edit with Noted on [[Emacs|description=Edit text areas via Chrom(ium) browsers|maintainer=Alex Bennée|source=https://githubas a web browser's external editor]].com/stsquad/emacs_chrome}}'''Edit with Emacs''' is extension to chromefor the Google Chrome web browser, that lets you can edit testarea text areas on your webpage a web page with Emacs.
== How It Works ==
* install '''Edit with Emacs''' on your chrome
* download [[edit-server.el ]] to your computer(bundled with extension)
* add following line to .emacs
<source lang="lisp">
(add-to-list 'load-path "/wherepath/yourto/edit-server.el/is")
(require 'edit-server)
* It's recommended to run your emacs as a server as "emacs --daemon"although the edit-server will happily run in a long-running emacs just as well.
* your will find a button at the bottom of textarea when you browse the webpage
* when you press the button a emacs frame will show up, with text already in the textarea
* when you have done, press c-c c-c as "edit-server-done" to update your change to the textarea
* '''Warning''' When you edit textarea, it is likely your change your major mode to [[mediawiki-mode]] or other [[major mode]], this will likely bound the c-c c-c to other commmand, then you should use m-x "edit-server-done" - this should be fixed in the latest v1.11
* [[edit-server.el]] is also available in MELPA
Noted on [[Emacs as a browser's external editor]].== Mechanism ==
Chrome extension [ Edit with Emacs] uses its own '''Edit Server''' rather than Emacsclient because Chrome's security policy does not allow extensions to spawn new processes. The extension allows the user to edit text in Emacs and send the results to the browser textarea with {{CommandKeys|C-x #|edit-server-done}}.
