I work a lot with Typescript files for Angular 2. The whole HTML structure is packaged in a quote. I would like to select that quote, and edit it in another mode (HTML/Web mode), then save it back to the buffer with the Typescript mode.

I knew there is another package for that, but I cannot find it back. Even not on emacs.zeef.com and Google.

Does anyone recognize which package I mean?

    You might want to look into polymode.

    You can also try mmm-mode.

  • Also have a look at indirect buffers in the emacs manual. Feb 14, 2017 at 16:32
  • I've used nXhtml for such editing.

You are probably looking for edit-indirect:

Edit regions in separate buffers, like `org-edit-src-code' but for arbitrary regions.
