Hi,

I find the first thing I do after launching emacs is to load my custom
agenda, bound to C-c a c.

Is there a way I can launch this from the command-line? I know I can
run 'emacs -eval "(foo)"', but I haven't been able to determine the
function that loads my custom agenda. Does such a function exist, or
is there a way to specific the keystrokes from the command line?

Thanks,

  -k.

Untested:

emacs --eval '(org-agenda nil "c" nil)'

or add

(org-agenda nil "c" nil)

at the bottom of your .emacs file.

Hi Ken,

If you look at the docstring for `org-agenda', you'll see you can call
it with the prefix arg as the first argument, and the selector key as
the second. Assuming you don't need a prefix argument, this should work
for you:

(org-agenda nil "c")

Put that at the bottom of your init file (or run it as an after-init
hook), and it will be the first thing you see when you start emacs.

That works fairly well. I'm doing the CLI --eval version because I
often launch emacs w/o wanting to enter org mode. But I get a screen
with 90% org and 10% *scratch* buffer... Again, some searching and
trying to call the "kill-buffer" function, and I haven't figured it
out. Any hints on how to get full-terminal agenda mode? Sorry if these
are newbie questions.

   -k.

Try

emacs -q -l /path/to/minimal/org.el\
       --eval '(progn (setq org-agenda-window-setup (quote current-window)) (org-agenda nil "c" nil))'
