Aquamacs Emacs 1.9
Aquamacs is an easy-to-use, Mac-style Emacs for OS X
An Editor for Text, HTML, LaTeX, C++, Java, Python, Perl and more...
Aquamacs is an Aqua-native build of the powerful Emacs text editor. By
"Aqua-native," we mean more than just the fact that this version of
Emacs runs as a standard OS X application. Aquamacs features extensive
customization that enables it to conform better with Apple's standard
Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) than standard versions of the editor
Emacs is a text editor of legendary power and configurability, but it
also has an enormously complex user interface. One advantage of it is:
no matter what operating system you run Emacs on, you'll always get the
same interface. The big problem: if you use a number of applications on
your Mac, one of them is Emacs, you'll have to switch gears when you
switch to Emacs.
Aquamacs is better. We support the standard Mac user interface that
you've come to love. For instance, in addition to traditional Emacs
shortcuts like C-x C-f (open a new file), Aquamacs understands Apple-O.
Aquamacs behaves like a modern application on Mac (or Windows) when it
comes to selecting, copying, pasting texts within Aquamacs or in between
applications. Aquamacs offers nice, smooth fonts. Asian input methods
work. It's easy to install and runs out-of-the box with no
configuration. And all is built on GNU Emacs, so you can use your
favorite Emacs packages!
