I'm using web-mode within emacs to edit an html file, in html-mode I can use C-c C-v to render html, it opens the file straight to Firefox.

How I do that with web-mode?

Thanks a lot,

P.S : Using emacs 26.3

You can find out what C-c C-v does by pressing F1 k C-c C-v in a html-mode buffer:

C-c C-v runs the command browse-url-of-buffer (found in html-mode-map), which is an interactive autoloaded compiled Lisp function in ‘browse-url.el’.

That command can be bound in the appropriate web-mode keymap, aptly named web-mode-map:

(with-eval-after-load 'web-mode
  (define-key web-mode-map (kbd "C-c C-v") 'browse-url-of-buffer))

    Thanks for the great answer ! I added :bind ("C-c C-v" . browse-url-of-buffer) to my use-package and it works well. Commented Feb 7, 2020 at 23:15
