Re: properly setting up ~/.emacs.d for daemon usage

​Óscar, sure. Here are some specifics:

1) The gui theme I use, zerodark (By Nicolas Petton, who is redesign
elpa.gnu.org), queries display-graphic-p everytime it goes about defining a
palete element:

https://github.com/NicolasPetton/zerodark-theme/blob/master/zerodark-theme.el#L158-L162

So If I load my emacs with emacs --daemon, in the configuration section
that calls (load-theme), (display-graphic-p) will not work because emacs
does not know if I'll go tty or gui. That type of code is prevalent in
various other popular themes. Here's spacemacs using display-graphic-p:
https://github.com/nashamri/spacemacs-theme/blob/master/spacemacs-common.el#L69-L72

2) I would be glad if I could define two separate themes for gui and for
tty. I'd even be willing to have two separate daemons: one for gui, and one
for tty. I've already did that with success using (setq server-use-tcp t).
and then:

emacs --daemon=gui
emacs --daemon=tty
emacsclient --server-file=
​gui
 -c -n
emacsclient --server-file=
​tty
 -c -n

​But this does not solve issue 1).

3) there are some packages, like
https://github.com/7696122/evil-terminal-cursor-changer,
that only make sense in a tty frame. Since emacs --daemon does not know
what I'm going to use, (unless I use approach 2. which does not solve issue
1.)  I can't really setup a condition that loads or not the package
accordingly.


​I think that sums it up,

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Ninrod.​
