Today, I have been extensively working on my emacs prolusion and updated emacs to its current HEAD version, that is, 220.127.116.11.
To do so, I have obviously used brew:
This builds Emacs.app into brew’s cellar, and to have it into your /Applications folder, brew invites you to invoke the following command:
This does the job, it symlinks Emacs.app from brew’s cellar to the Applications folder but it appears that symlinks are not supported by Spotlight.
To fix this, I found a nice one-liner solution. First remove the symlink:
Spotlight will now index Emacs.app. The same procedure applies for other application bundles provided by brew such as MacVim.app.
