Collaborative editing, Emacs and D-Bus
1 minute read

A little while ago, I discovered Emacs has D-Bus support now. I wanted to play around with it, and I discovered Alban’s collaborative editing page. It seems like Emacs’s D-Bus documentation is somewhat lacking, though CVS has some more docs.

Alban’s work seems to need a well-known name, something Emacs can’t yet do, so I’ll probably add a method to text-remote-control where any app can register and say “Hi, I support your interface” as I think this makes more sense. I don’t have any code that does anything useful yet, but once text-remote-control is fixed, I don’t think that’s very hard.
