  • Emacs Auto-Revert Mode

    October 1st, 2012
    emacs, tech  [html]
    When a file changes on disk outside of my text editor it's nearly always because I:
    • modified it in another editor, or
    • used git to switch branches.
    In both of these cases I would like my editor to notice the change and start showing the new version unless I have unsaved changes. I can make emacs always do this by putting:
       (global-auto-revert-mode 1)
    
    in my ~/.emacs. I've not found a situation where this makes emacs do something other than what I would want it to do.
