Primer on Emacs bookmarks

Raw link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eWAfmABHMs

In this video I offer an introduction to the built-in bookmarking framework of Emacs. Bookmarks are compartments that store arbitrary data about files/contexts that we can retrieve on demand. They can potentially work with practically every major-mode inside of Emacs and can interface with other core features such as TRAMP to, e.g., restore an Eshell buffer over a particular file access protocol.

The video also briefly covers my custom extensions for the bookmarks’ list view as well as my handler function for making EWW compliant with the standard bookmark.el library instead of its own bookmarking facility.

All configurations and custom code are published on this website as part of my dotemacs: https://protesilaos.com/dotemacs. The link includes references to the Git sources.
