I'm new to Emacs and I'm going about customizing my install on Mac OS Catalina.
I have a twist on a common request.
I had the idea to customize the emacs startup screen, but I see those options are limited based on what I've read so far. You can switch out the logo, maybe change the bg color, customize the text string associated with that screen, but you can't really dig into it per say because it's all in the source code.
So I got the idea of displaying a local html file (or one on a LAN) instead. I got that to display on launch, but it's showing in HTML code mode/buffer. I found this line for my .emacs file elsewhere:
(setq initial-buffer-choice "~/.emacs.d/startup.html")
My question is... Is there a way to launch Emacs in eww browser mode and display a local
startup.html file? (Which is like hitting a nail with a sledgehammer I know but, I was curious.)
Related to this, can you specify a handler for links to files within a page displayed by eww? (e.g. .mp4,.mp3, html, pdf,.csv, etc.)
