3 Debugging

With-Editor tries very hard to locate a suitable emacsclient executable, and then sets option with-editor-emacsclient-executable accordingly. In very rare cases this fails. When it does fail, then the most likely reason is that someone found yet another way to package Emacs (most likely on macOS) without putting the executable on $PATH, and we have to add another kludge to find it anyway.

If you are having problems using with-editor, e.g., you cannot commit in Magit, then please open a new issue at and provide information about your Emacs installation. Most importantly how did you install Emacs and what is the output of M-x with-editor-debug RET.
