@jr0cket John, emacs-plus@28 homebrew formula (since recently) includes --with-native-comp option.

Really useful, thank you.

What’s the exact command line to install a stable emacs version via homebrew? Should I include --with-native-comp?

Are you really not able to just… try?


> install a stable emacs native-comp is an experimental feature. First you need to tap it brew tap d12frosted/emacs-plus and then depending of what you want, do something like: brew install emacs-plus@28 --with-native-comp I for example built it with xwidget support as well

I just installed it. How do I tell this emacs instance to use my emacs.d (so that it runs spacemacs)?


Note that unfortunately Emacs 28 seems to be currently incompatible with for example evil-mode and org-mode:


Is there a list somewhere I can see the differences between 27 and 28?

C-h n can bring up news and changes for your version of emacs. Otherwise you can find news files in etc in the emacs repo. dont see 28 there in the mirror yet though.


Thank you both 🙂
