Here’s a handy shortcut that toggles between the W3M web browser and other buffers you’re working on. I use it to quickly switch between code and documentation (or your favorite timewasting site, as it also makes a handy boss key).
Define the function by adding the following code to your ~/.emacs:
(defun wicked/toggle-w3m () "Switch to a w3m buffer or return to the previous buffer." (interactive) (if (derived-mode-p 'w3m-mode) ;; Currently in a w3m buffer ;; Bury buffers until you reach a non-w3m one (while (derived-mode-p 'w3m-mode) (bury-buffer)) ;; Not in w3m ;; Find the first w3m buffer (let ((list (buffer-list))) (while list (if (with-current-buffer (car list) (derived-mode-p 'w3m-mode)) (progn (switch-to-buffer (car list)) (setq list nil)) (setq list (cdr list)))) (unless (derived-mode-p 'w3m-mode) (call-interactively 'w3m)))))
Then bind it to a shortcut key sequence (F7 F7 in this example) by adding the following code to your ~/.emacs:
(global-set-key (kbd "
You can then use F7 F7 to switch back and forth between your web browser and whatever else you’re working on.Short URL: sach.ac/p/5088
