Aquamacs is the Emacs editor that Mac users love. Aquamacs lets you write text from LaTeX manuscripts to to-do lists, from C to Cobol, Java, Python, Shell-script, Lisp, everything! Aquamacs looks and behaves like other Mac programs - even though it's still the powerful GNU Emacs with all the extensibility that millions have come to appreciate.

Emacs is a text editor of legendary power and configurability, but it also has an enormously complex interface. Aquamacs tames the Emacs tiger: you get Apple shortcuts (in addition to the Emacs ones), nice fonts, one file per window (if wanted), international input methods, Apple more...

What's New

Version 3.0a:
  • This Aquamacs is based on Emacs 24. Highlights:
    • A major addition to Emacs 24 is its package managing system. (Start with M-x list-packages. Re-installing included packages is not recommended.)
    • There is a new word count function (see Aquamacs Edit menu).
    • Right-to-left text (Arabic, Persian, Hebrew) is well supported now even when mixed with more...

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6 or later

When version 3 will be ready? Common Emacs 24 got its 24.2 upgrade and Aquamacs still cannot go to version 3?

My Aquamacs is stuck in fullscreen mode. I clicked the arrows at the right end of the window's title bar, and it went fullscreen; but mousing to the top of the screen doesn't bring the arrows back. Even when I quit and restart Aquamacs, it's now permanently fullscreen; there doesn't seem to be a way to turn it back into a window. The online help has nothing about this.

Ah, figured it out - when Aquamacs launches it briefly puts a message at the bottom of the screen. M-x ns-toggle-fullscreen gets me out.

LOL, oh man.. that gave me a chuckle. I know what they are trying to say.. but... Sigh... when programmers handle copy, it's funny.

Great for those who love emacs but need some Aqua integration (more than say Fink could give you)...

You either love it or hate it, but emacs is a powerful editor/environment.

The usability is very nice. It contains all of unix emacs along some mac/cocoa improvements. However the speed is horrible. Compared to the unmodified emacs and also textmate it takes ages to load, especially if you pick your own color profile. You would think that cocoa would make it more "native" and thus faster, but this is not the case. I deleted all my preferences and still the startup time is ridiculous on a macbook pro. For someone who does a lot of small edits this is not very practical. For this and also the bundles I switched to textmate.

If you do a lot of small edits from the command-line, consider using "emacsclient" or the included "aquamacs" command line tool (Tools menu).

Aquamacs is not designed to be restarted again and again, even though the startup time on my machine is less than 3 seconds (when cached).

It's based on Emacs 23.2.

(We also have versions based on Emacs 22 (Aquamacs 1.x) and a very experimental version based on Emacs 24 (development snapshot) available on our website (nightly builds).

This is the final Aquamacs 2.0 release. Thanks to everyone who helped test and improve the new version.

Note: This is a preview version. We regularly maintain and recommend version 1.9 for mission-critical use.

The correct version name of this is "2.0preview3".
