Noted on [[Emacs as a web browser's external editor]]. '''Edit with Emacs''' is extension for the Google Chrome web browser, that let's lets you edit text areas on a web page with Emacs.
== How It Works ==
* 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
