The accepted answer does not work anymore since libxml2 will be installed inside the XCode directory. The solution is described here:
In short, Apple provides an installer that can put the librairies inside /usr/include. You can ...
The reason you sometimes see “interactive compiled Lisp function” (or likewise for variables) with no file name is that the function was loaded from a byte-compiled file and the corresponding Elisp source file is not present. In order to show you the source code, Emacs has to be able to find the source code.
Many distributions ship Lisp source files in a ...
The error message described in the question has previously been encountered by other fellow Emacs enthusiasts, and the recommended fix is to install OSX command line tools by running the following from the command line:
Here is the link to the Emacs development thread that described the above solution by Daniel Sutton:
You can use C-h o (describe-symbol) on Emacs 25, here is the related NEWS info:

(It was originally called describe-function-or-variable according to this commit.)
Variable and function with the same name can be showed at the same time, for ...
This line only applies to release tarballs (hence why it says "unpacked") which come with a configure script. For the git checkout you'll need to generate it with ./autogen.sh. Be sure to check out the README file for more instructions.
Emacs switched from webkit1gtk to webkit2gtk so you'll need to install that instead. Your GTK package should be fine.
PS: I agree with the linked article, although I wouldn't put it this drastically. You're better off with using a dedicated browser built upon WebKit or WebEngine. If all you're after is Emacs keybindings, EXWM might be an alternative.
make is a program often used to automate life-cycle of another program. Compiling, testing, packaging and installing would be examples of events in a program's life-cycle managed by make. Usually, it uses a configuration file, typically called Makefile, to describe what should happen during each event in the program's life-cycle. These descriptions are ...
I successfully built emacs 26.3 from scratch on macOS 10.15.1 with libxml2 installed using brew without the nonsense in the first two answers. After installing libxml2 and running ./configure, I modified the CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS in emacs-26.3/src/Makefile to terminate with libxml2 instead of include:
CFLAGS = -I/usr/local/opt/libxml2/include/libxml2
To self-insert the key in the source block:
(defun my-org-mode-hook ()
"Custom `org-mode' behaviours."
(add-hook 'typo-disable-electricity-functions 'org-in-src-block-p nil :local))
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'my-org-mode-hook)
*A list of functions to call before an electric key binding is used. If one of the functions ...
Unless you've compiled your Emacs you have to download the C source code separately. If you're on GNU, some distros allow downloading the source code using the package manager, which makes upgrading a bit easier. For example here's a tutorial for installing the source code on Fedora.
Once you have the source code tree in a directory, say ~/src/emacs-27.1/src,...
If you're looking for ways to quickly jump to source code, there are also find-function-at-point and find-variable-at-point which will jump to the definition of the symbol under the cursor - you could bind them to C-h C-f and C-h C-v, for instance.
Or you could try elisp-slime-nav, which uses M-. to jump to a symbol's definition, and M-, to return - it ...
C-u M-x project-find-regexp.
See its documentation,
project-find-regexp is an interactive Lisp closure in ‘project.el.gz’.
Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 25.1.
Find all matches for REGEXP in the current project’s roots.
With C-u prefix, you can specify the directory
to search in, and the file name pattern to ...
The help for projectile-grep mentions the setting projectile-grep-default-files. I believe that you could use directory–local variables to set this to the correct value on a per–project basis, but I’ve not tried it myself.
Personally I use Ripgrep instead of grep. Ripgrep honors the .gitignore files that my projects all have, so it already ignores compiled ...
Usually the way to do that is to type M-x describe-function in the minibuffer, then enter other-buffer. That will show you a help window on the function with the documentation on that function. At the top is usually a link to the source code of the function you can click on to get there. other-buffer is implemented in the C source code though so you unless ...
Emacs does not choose the icon, it is provided by OSX, look at those files in Finder, they'll have that same icon.
This image can be gathered through by using the AppKit class NSWorkspace's function iconForFileType
Grep the source for iconForFileType and you'll find the usage.
So if you wanted to change what a swift file's icon was you'd need to change ...
In past I want did the same. So I found the answer by accident another day, funny.
I saw that you can do it with any org command prefixed with #+BEGIN by just writing a babel language name after it as we use with in #+BEGIN_SRC blocks. See yourself:
