Open files in an existing Emacs server. See also emacs. More information:
  • Open a file in an existing Emacs server (using GUI if available):
    emacsclient {{path/to/file}}
  • Open a file in console mode (without an X window):
    emacsclient --no-window-system {{path/to/file}}
  • Open a file in a new Emacs window:
    emacsclient --create-frame {{path/to/file}}
  • Evaluate a command, printing the output to stdout, and then quit:
    emacsclient --eval '({{command}})'
  • Specify an alternative editor in case no Emacs server is running:
    emacsclient --alternate-editor {{editor}} {{path/to/file}}
  • Stop a running Emacs server and all its instances, asking for confirmation on unsaved files:
    emacsclient --eval '(save-buffers-kill-emacs)'
