I'm new to Emacs, so apologies if this is covered elsewhere.
I'm running latest macOS 12.4; and downloaded
emacs.app from emacsformacosx.com so I'm on Emacs 28.1-4 .
I have an admin user, which I almost never login as via GUI (basically, only for major system updates).
I have (at least) 2 standard users, let's call them
I could run a per user instance of emacs daemon by putting the relevant plist in each
~/Library/LaunchAgents. Does doing this run a risk of clobbering any files?
Or, could I run a single per machine instance by putting the relevant plist in
/Library/LaunchDaemons. This seems more efficient, but then which user should own the process, and where should I place my
.emacs.d/init.el and friends?
Can I have a very basic set up for the machine daemon, and a customised init.el on a per user basis which could be read by emacsclient?
I think all the documentation for Emacs on Mac assumes that one is running as a single admin user (this is true for brew and others too I notice) but again apologies if this is all obvious!
Lastly, are there any limitations to running emacs as client/server? For example, can one persuade emacsclient to remember desktop state?
