Installation

  1. put foxdot-cli.py in the same directory as the FoxDot installaton (in case you're using virtualenv, otherwise comment from lines 5 to 7)
  2. copy foxdot-mode.el to ~/.emacs.d/lisp
  3. add (defvar foxdot-cli-path "/path/to/foxdot-cli/") in your ~/.emacs file
  4. in Emacs M-x load-library and complete with foxdot-mode
  5. Type C-c C-f or M-x foxdot-start to start
  6. Type C-c C-e or M-x foxdot-execute to evaluate a line or a block of code

@rdtor @fdragovic keep in mind this was done many years ago. I'm not really sure this still works. And probably FoxDot provides a proper emacs mode.

@lvm Foxdot does not provide emacs mode (the Foxdot page refers to this link), it is a shame that this modei does not work, it may not be too bad to repair.

@jargenty I'm pretty sure that you can use the "new" --pipe flag in FoxDot to interpret code from STDIN.
Can't say for sure this works bc i do not have FD installed right now, but i'd try replacing line 7 of foxdot-mode.el

<     python-shell-interpreter-args (concat foxdot-cli-path "foxdot-cli.py")
>     python-shell-interpreter-args (concat foxdot-cli-path "python3 -m FoxDot -p -d our-samples-dir") 

so instead of piping the selected code to foxdot-cli.py, it goes directly to FoxDot.
Another nice change could be to store "our samples dir" in a variable in ~/.emacs but that's homework :-)

@jargenty never said it was going to. i suggested a path that you could follow in order to obtain a solution :-)
