text mode browsing in Emacs

I’m leaning more and more towards text based workflow.

Earlier I enabled twittering-mode in Doom Emacs, and tweeted from Emacs. How 🆒 is that.

But that is when I realized that twitter has lots of URLs. If I visit a URL from my Twitter feed, it opens up in external browser by default.

I have two problems with that.

  1. My flow gets disturbed.
  2. The browser already has gazillion links open. Once I go there, I get distracted.

Opening links within emacs addresses both these (I think. Too early to comment)

Since eww is already included in Emacs 24.4 onwards, no separate installation required.

I added the following to my config.el

(setq browse-url-browser-function 'eww-browse-url)
