Emacs Mac Port

What is this?

This is "Mac port" addition to GNU Emacs 24. This provides a native GUI support for Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.10. Note that Emacs 23 and later already contain the official GUI support via the NS (Cocoa) port for Mac OS X 10.4 and later. So if it is good enough for you, then you don't need to try this.

IMPORTANT NOTE

If you find a bug, then please try to reproduce it with some official builds such as X11 or NS (Cocoa). If it turns out to be specific to the Mac port, then please report it to mituharu+bug-gnu-emacs-mac@math.s.chiba-u.ac.jp. Otherwise (i.e., it is also reproducible with official ones), report it using M-x report-emacs-bug USING THE OFFICIAL BUILD as such.

Features

This build has many features, a great number of which are particularly helpful for Mac users. You can see the full list here.

Build from the latest

  1. Get the latest code from git repository

    If you are new here: $ git clone git://github.com/railwaycat/emacs-mac-port.git

    If you cloned this repository before: $ git pull

  2. Follow the step h. i. j. in the build instructions

    You can SKIP step a. b. c. d. e. f. and g. because code in this repository was patched already.

Macports (the package manager) also have emacs-mac-port, with package name "emacs-mac-app". It's not maintained by me.
