(Emacs+Org-Mode) Personal Magit From The Terminal

Thanks to Jon and UnwashedMeme I’ve got the best shell-based Git IDE could have ever imaged! And it is based on Emacs 😄😮.

Here is my Bash alias. It is unique to my box simply because:

  • It uses full parameter names
  • It loads a subset of my configuration so it loads a little faster
  • It uses double quotes for the alias
alias magit="emacs --no-window-system --no-init-file --load \
      ~/src/help/.org-mode-contribute.emacs.el --eval '(progn (magit-status) (delete-other-windows))'"
