Open Logseq in Emacs

Open and edit Logseq pages and config files in Emacs.



First, set up Org-protocol. This is due to the limitations of Logseq and, in general, Electron.

Second, add the following to your config file:

(use-package org-protocol
  :ensure org
  (add-to-list 'org-protocol-protocol-alist
               '("org-find-file" :protocol "find-file" :function org-protocol-find-file :kill-client nil))
  (defun org-protocol-find-file (fname)
    "Process org-protocol://find-file?path= style URL."
    (let ((f (plist-get (org-protocol-parse-parameters fname nil '(:path)) :path)))
      (find-file f)
      (select-frame-set-input-focus (selected-frame)))))

To verify your config, run the following command,

emacsclient -c 'org-protocol://find-file?path=/tmp/some_file.txt'

it should open a new frame that visits /tmp/some_file.txt.

(Yes, you could have shortcut the protocol thing, but org-protocol is popular and widely supported, so why not? 🙂
