It only gets evaluated after the frame is created.

This is possible, though:

emacsclient -e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(height . 40))" \
-e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(width . 120))" ; emacsclient -c

It litters the alist with new definitions, but it works.

Alternately put it in .bashrc:

emacsclient -e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(height . 30))" \
-e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(width . 55))"

Then the setting only affects the given computer and I can use the .emacs.d

But different from -g GEOMETRY it affects later frames, too :(

I then can’t call emacsclient with default settings without setting these
default settings.

To pseudo-only set it once:

emacsclient -e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(height . 40))" \
-e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(width . 120))" ; emacsclient -c \
-e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(height . 40))" \
-e "(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(width . 80))"

But that is kinda clumsy compared to emacsclient -g 120x40…

Best wishes,
