Emacs runs on several operating systems regardless of the machine type. The main ones are: GNU, GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS, MS Windows and Solaris.
You can download GNU Emacs releases from a nearby GNU mirror; or if automatic redirection does not work see the list of GNU mirrors, or use the main GNU ftp server.
GNU Emacs source code and development is hosted on savannah.gnu.org.
This will take some time, especially if you have a slow internet connection and because Xcode is huge. But it's faster than you having to search the App Store app and click to install for each of these! Tap 'caskroom/cask'. Tap 'caskroom/drivers'. Tap 'caskroom/fonts'. Tap 'heroku/brew'. These plugins add support for the corresponding file type to Mac Quick Look (In Finder, mark a file and press Space to start Quick Look). The plugins includes features like syntax highlighting, Markdown rendering, preview of JSON, patch files, CSV, ZIP files and more. Brew install -cask qlcolorcode qlstephen qlmarkdown quicklook-json. Cask brings simplicity and speed to installing and managing GUI applications on macOS. In simple terms, it's a way to install applications on your Mac without the hassle of googling it and installing it online. $ brew install cask. List apps: brew search —- casks; Search apps: brew search (appname) Install: brew cask install (appname).
Most GNU/Linux distributions provide GNU Emacs in their repositories, which is the recommended way to install Emacs unless you always want to use the latest release.

If your GNU/Linux distribution includes a graphical package manager, this is often the easiest way to install Emacs. Please refer to the documentation for your distribution for full instructions on how to install a package.
You might prefer installing from the command-line. Here are some of the commands that various GNU/Linux distributions use to install a package named
On some systems, the package name must include the Emacs version number, such as
emacs-27.1, instead of
The BSDs provide GNU Emacs in their repositories, which is the recommended way to install Emacs unless you always want to use the latest release.
The reason for GNU Emacs's existence is to provide a powerful editor for the GNU operating system. Versions of GNU, such as GNU/Linux, are the primary platforms for Emacs development.
However, GNU Emacs includes support for some other systems that volunteers choose to support.
The purpose of the GNU system is to give users the freedom that proprietary software takes away from its users. Proprietary operating systems (like other proprietary programs) are an injustice, and we aim for a world in which they do not exist.
To improve the use of proprietary systems is a misguided goal. Our aim, rather, is to eliminate them. We include support for some proprietary systems in GNU Emacs in the hope that running Emacs on them will give users a taste of freedom and thus lead them to free themselves.
GNU Emacs for Windows can be downloaded from a nearby GNU mirror; or the main GNU FTP server.
Unzip the zip file preserving the directory structure, and run
binrunemacs.exe. Alternatively, create a desktop shortcut to
binrunemacs.exe, and start Emacs by double-clicking on that shortcut's icon.

MSYS2 users can install Emacs (64bits build) with the following:For the 32bits build, evaluate:
Emacs can be installed on MacOS using Homebrew.
The Emacs for OSX website also provides universal binaries.
macFUSE allows you to extend macOS's native file handling capabilities via third-party file systems.
As a user, installing the macFUSE software package will let you use any third-party FUSE file system. Legacy MacFUSE file systems are supported through the optional MacFUSE compatibility layer.
As a developer, you can use the FUSE SDK to write numerous types of new file systems as regular user space programs. The content of these file systems can come from anywhere: from the local disk, from across the network, from memory, or any other combination of sources. Writing a file system using FUSE is orders of magnitude easier and quicker than the traditional approach of writing in-kernel file systems. Since FUSE file systems are regular applications (as opposed to kernel extensions), you have just as much flexibility and choice in programming tools, debuggers, and libraries as you have if you were developing standard macOS applications.
In more technical terms, FUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on macOS. It provides multiple APIs, one of which is a superset of the FUSE API (file system in user space) that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on macOS.
The macFUSE software consists of a kernel extension and various user space libraries and tools. It comes with C-based and Objective-C-based SDKs. If you prefer another language (say, Python or Java), you should be able to create file systems in those languages after you install the relevant language bindings yourself.
The filesystems repository contains source code for several exciting and useful file systems for you to browse, compile, and build upon, such as sshfs, procfs, AccessibilityFS, GrabFS, LoopbackFS, SpotlightFS, and YouTubeFS.
