An overview of some techniques I use to manage my Emacs configuration with Org mode.
While there are some things I prefer in Chrome I try to use Firefox whenever possible as I think it’s important to have choices. However, we use Google Meet at my company and I’ve never gotten it to perform well in Firefox (I’m guessing it’s not one of Google’s top priorities).
This means I have to copy the links to the meeting and navigate there myself in Chrome. Since I use Org Mode to manage my calendar I thought, why not hack browse-url to open Google Meet url’s in Chrome and save my self the trouble?
A colleague recently shared some code to copy plain text Org Mode markup to the clipboard, such that the formatting would be properly represented when pasting in other applications. The idea is you can draft some text in Org (or another markup like Markdown) and then paste it into rich text fields in your web browser or other application.
However, their solution used xclip, which wouldn’t work for me on a Mac.
