Quick Toot

Quick toot is an emacs plugin that lets you post toots to any oauth-supporting mastodon instance. It is not a full fledged mastodon client that lets you read notifications and timelines, because while it pains to admit it, browsers are just better at that stuff. What browsers aren’t good at though, is editing text. That’s where quick toot comes in. Doing some work in emacs and want to post a quick toot to mastodon? Run M-x qtoot and start typing right away. C-c C-c will post the toot in the current buffer to an instance of your choice.
