Popon - "Pop" floating text "on" a window

Popon allows you to pop text on a window, what we call a popon. Popons are window-local and sticky, they don't move while scrolling, and they even don't go away when switching buffer, but you can bind a popon to a specific buffer to only show on that buffer.

If some popons are annoying you and you can't kill them, do M-x popon-kill-all to kill all popons.



Install from NonGNU ELPA.


(quelpa '(popon :fetcher git
                :url "https://codeberg.org/akib/emacs-popon.git"))


 '(popon :type git :repo "https://codeberg.org/akib/emacs-popon.git"))


Download popon.el and put it in your load-path.


The main entry point is popon-create, which creates a popon and returns that. Use popon-kill to kill it. Popons are immutable, you can't modify them. Most of time you'll want to place the popon at certain point of buffer; call popon-x-y-at-pos with the point and use the return value as the coordinates. Be sure see the docstring of each function, they describe the best.
