using emacs as an editor in visual studio

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to use emacs as the embedded text editor in visual studio. I saw that vs.net 2005 has emacs key bindings,which is cool, but obviously doesn't have elisp scripting, which is pretty much a must for an emacs user. I also saw that someone wrote a small app that uses COM to drive vs.net so you can develop in emacs and then call elisp methods to script vs.net to build/debug/etc, which also isn't quite what I'm looking for:) Cheers Chris

Hey Ollie

Thanks for the link. ratings++ for your help! I've tried that and unfortunetly all it does is send the file to emacs directly, if you can even get it working:)

Cheers
Chris

You'll have to write a host plugin. Luckily for you, this isn't terribly difficult in VS2005, although it's not trivial either. Here's a jumping-off point.

Thanks for the post, but again it won't quite do what I'd like. I tried that and unless I'm missing something it wont let me replace the built in editor, so no elisp scripting which is arguably the most important part of using emacs.

Cheers
