I use file_opened, buffer_new and view_vew for this purpose now.

Don't know about the font, but maybe it's easier to copy the theme you
would like to use to your .textadept and change the font there. It's
enough to copy only the lexer.lua file and change the font there to
minimize tracking changes in Textadept's core.
E.g copy themes/dark/lexer.lua to ~/.textadept/themes/dark/lexer.lua

if buffer.filename then
local buffer_dir = buffer.filename:match('(.+)[/\\]

Current working dir, possibly something like:
local lfs = require 'lfs'
local cwd = lfs.currentdir()
