What emacs_contextmenu affects

  • registry

Beginning with emacs_contextmenu


Use, require or include the class emacs_contextmenu, it will update the registry to add emacs as a option on the context menu of files, you need to supply a path that tells it where emacs is installed, that variable is named path

so something like this could work class { 'emacs_contextmenu': path => '' }
