Managed to embed portal in emacs!

(require '[ :as shell]
         '[portal.api :as portal]
         '[portal.runtime.browser :as browser])

(defmethod browser/-open :emacs/xwidget [{:keys [portal options server]}]
  (let [url (pr-str (str "http://" (:host server) ":" (:port server) "?" (:session-id portal)))]
    (shell/sh "emacsclient" "-e" (str "(xwidget-webkit-browse-url" url ")"))))

(portal/open {:launcher :emacs/xwidget})

This is awesome! I do get *ERROR*: Your Emacs was not compiled with xwidgets support when I try this launcher. I wonder if brew has a build of emacs with xwidgets :thinking_face:


I'm still happy to add this directly to portal if you want to submit a PR :thumbsup:

While it does work, the user experience around it is meh/10, so I wouldn't add it until that was figured out, unless you'd like me to PR it as an experimental extension


I'll see if I can get it working. If the meh experience is due to performance, that might be able to improve. And improving perf would make it better in all other browsers.

I don't think it's performance, you'll probably try it yourself later today and see

Flickers a bit


If anyone has ideas on how portal interactions could be used to generate code and would like to share, please comment on this
