Emacs ATX is a meetup devoted to exploring the vast and ever expanding universe of the extensible, customizable, free/libre editor Emacs. We are also a support group for people with Emacs-related issues. Our goal is to make everyone more productive.

Come practice your Emacs Fu with us!


You can park in the Omni garage, directly under Capital Factory (enter from Brazos) for a flat fee. Don't forget to ask for a parking validation card from one of the front desks.


Eric will discuss Emacs and Modal Editing - Alternative ways to edit text in Emacs with vi emulation and beyond.

Shad will discuss using Eshell, the shell-like command interpreter implemented in Emacs Lisp.

Norman will discuss using cloudmacs to selfhost your Emacs and access it in browser.


Many thanks to Capital Factory (, the center of gravity for entrepreneurship in Texas, for providing a space for our meeting.
