What is Emacs ?

Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor. This Editor is used to do a lot of things, from IRC to reading mails and news, along with "basic" editing, advanced macro, remote control, multimedia player, and so on..

This webpage is about EMMS, an Emacs "package" that you use to extend Emacs features to multimedia.

Quick-Start Guide


Get the development branch (it's very stable) via git:

         $ git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/emms.git
If you are behind a restrictive firewall, then do the following instead:
         $ git clone http://git.sv.gnu.org/r/emms.git

Next, add the following lines to your emacs config:

        (add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp/emms/")
        (require 'emms-setup)
That's it, EMMS is now installed and ready to use!

What now?

Emms is packaged with a friendly and up-to-date manual.
