My default shell is
eshell. I just discovered
iimage-mode that allows me to display images in buffers that contain some reference to an image file. Unfortunately, I doesn't seem to have any effect when it is enabled in eshell.
In any other buffer something like
file:///home/rekado/Pictures/test.png is replaced with an inlined image loaded from the file
test.png. In an eshell buffer, however, I cannot seem to make this work.
echoing the string
file:///home/rekado/Pictures/test.png, but this just results in a boring string and no pretty test image. I also made sure to use
/bin/echo instead of the elisp/eshell implementation of echo, but with no success.
When I disable and reenable
iimage-mode it works all right (the file name is replaced with an inline image), but that's a rather inconvenient workaround.
If there's no way to make
eshell work with
iimage-mode maybe there is another method to display images right in the eshell buffer?
