notmuch2 (python cffi bindings) segfault gdb logs

2020-11-23 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi!

I've been complaining about the new (and old) python bindings causing the 
python interpreter to segfault occasionally. So far I was not able to reproduce 
this reliably nor provide error traces. This has just changed:
see below and attached for what I got from gdb.

I hope that whoever is in charge of the bindings can make sense of it. I don't 
have any experience so far with cffi nor gdb and have a hard time debugging 
this. The logs below are my attempt to collect as much detail as possible 
about. Please let me know if I missed something.

Cheers!
P

Re: python/notmuch2 on PyPI

2020-06-19 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone,

First off, thanks for your work on notmuch2, Floris!

Just to clarify: alot does not, and will not, depend on packages being on PyPI
and is not intended to be installed through pip. I simply don't want to provide
support for this.

This said, I don't think it is difficult to automate pypi uploads and it cannot
hurt to have an "official" release up there instead of several unmaintained
corpses over the years.

Cheers,
P

[alot] announcing v0.9.1

2020-05-14 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.9.1; You can get it via the github repository here 
[0].

There were several cool new features including, finally, a way to display and 
manipulate message MIME structure.
We've included a bunch of bug fixes and patches that make alot more in line 
with the steadily maturing email library from pythons standard lib.

Usage updates since v0.9:
* focus in search mode is preserved when refreshing
* feature: new 'togglemimepart' cmd in thread mode toggles between plain and 
html alternative
* feature: add "togglemimetree" command to thread mode
* envelope mode: "unattach" command is now "detatch"
* feature: respect mailcap entry for text/plain to enrich plain text parts with 
ANSI codes

[alot] announcing v0.9

2020-02-02 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.9; You can get a tarball here [0].

Again there were mostly under-the-hood fixes and refactoring.
The most significant new feature set is the ability to send HTML emails,
which works quite nicely in combination with pandoc [1] as documented here [2].

Usage updates since v0.8:
* feature: interpret ANSI escape codes (e.g.for colours) when displaying 
messages
* config: configure message-id domains for each account
* feature: new envelope commands txt2html, html2txt, removehtml
* info: updated signature of hooks 'reply_prefix' and 'forward_prefix', now 
include a named parameter for the message being replied/forwarded

[alot] announcing v0.8

2018-12-10 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.8; You can get a tarball here [0].

This version finally pushes some long awaited major refactoring,
most of which is due to Dylan Baker (dcbaker). Thanks!

It is our first python 3 release; version 2.* is not supported any more!
We've also dropped the dependency on twisted completely in favour of python's
built-in coroutines. On top of that comes the usual ton of extra bug fixes,
new tests and some new features (see below).

Usage updates since v0.7:
* Port to python 3. Python 2.x no longer supported
* support for notmuch's named queries. This adds a new 'namedqueries' mode and
  accompanied commands
* config: new option replied_tags
* config: new option passed_tags
* feature: new command "retagprompt" in thread buffers
* extra: update zsh completion

2018-02-21 Thread Patrick Totzke

Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.7; You can get a tarball here [0].
The release mostly contains bugfixes and extended tests.

This will be our last python2 release!

Development will move shortly to python3, which will most likely introduce some
new bugs in the transition phase. So those of you interested in the most
stable version should stick to this release.

Usage updates since v0.6:
* info: missing html mailcap entry now reported as mail body text
* feature: Allow regex special characters in tagstrings
* feature: configurable thread mode message indentation
* new thread buffer command "indent" (bound to '[' and ']')
* config: new option thread_indent_replies
* config: new option exclude_tags
* config: new option encrypt_to_self
* config: update behaviour of encrypt_by_default

I am generally in favour of modernizing the notmuch python bindings,
especially when it comes to memory management and exception handling.

At the moment, the alot interface officially only supports python v2.7
but our dependencies have now mostly been updated and we are working on
port to python 3, see here: https://github.com/pazz/alot/pull/1055

@Floris, you are welcome to join #alot on freenode if you want to
discuss details on that.

You mention that your new API breaks compatibility with the existing
ones. Do you have some demo code that uses the new API for reference?

Cheers,
P

* feature: new command "tag" (and friends) in EnvelopeBuffer to add additional 
tags after sending
* feature: Themes can now be loaded from system locations
* bug fix: GPG signatures are acutally verified
* feature: option to use linewise focussing in thread mode
* feature: add support to move to next or previous message matching a notmuch 
query in a thread buffer
* feature: Convert from deprecated pygppme module to upstream gpg wrappers
* feature: Verify signatures/decrypt messages in multipart/mixed payloads

[alot] announcing v0.5

2017-01-28 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.5; You can get a tarball here [0].

This release contains only minor usability improvements but lots of internal
cleanups. We are making good progress on porting alot to python 3, finally
introduced a testing suite and now make use of build-testing on travis.ci and
(partly automated) code reviews for pull requests on github.

A big thanks goes to Lucas Hoffmann (lucc) and Dylan Baker (dcbaker),
who contributed most of this work.

Usage updates since v0.4:
* save command prompt, recipient and sender history across program restarts
* new config option: "handle_mouse" to enable interpretation of mouse events
* prompt for unsent messages before closing
* enable variable interpolation in config file
* Add encryption to CC addresses
* Add bufferlist, tablist and pyshell subcommands to the command line interface
* new hook: "loop_hook", that runs periodically
* new config option: "periodic_hook_frequency" to adjust how often to fire 
"loop_hook"

2016-12-09 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.4; You can get a tarball here [0].

I am happy to see a renewed interest in keeping this project alive.
Several people declared an interest in sharing some of the reponsibility
and pushing things forward (see [1] for the discussion).
For now, I will grant the following (github) users write access to the
repository: geier (py3 ports), lucc, dcbaker (testing) and dkg (gnupg).

Future pull requests will be required to pass the automatic QA tests [2],
receive at least one favourable review [3] and should be based against the
master branch.
I've decided to let the version number reflect the change in workflow.
We are now working towards version 0.5.

This version contains pushes mostly fixes and minor
usabilityimprovements (see below).

Usage updates since v0.3.7:
* signal: refresh current buffer on SIGUSR1
* signal: exit interface on SIGINT
* interpret C-g keybinding in prompts
* new config option:encrypt_by_default
* new config option: thread_authors_order_by
* indicate untrusted PGP signatures in thread view

Re: [PATCH] use notmuch_database_open_verbose

2016-03-13 Thread Patrick Totzke
As far as I understand the bindings, the returned message is not needed
because the return
value of `Database._open` (line 212) contains information about the type of
error that occurred.
This is passed on two lines below if the open-call was unsuccessful.

The docstrings for this method are not ideal (the mentioned "status"
parameter is actually called "mode") but in terms of functionality it seems
ok.

... instead of the deprecated notmuch_database_open

[alot] announcing v0.3.7

2015-12-21 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.7; You can get a tarball here [0].

NOTE: THIS VERSION INTRODUCES A NEW DEPENDENCY: "urwidtrees",
a library of urwid-widgets for tree structures.
It grew out of the alot interface and is now a separate project [1].

Apart from this, the current version contains lots of small fixes and usability
improvements, mainly provided by users (see below).

Usage updates since v0.3.6:
* new config option: msg_summary_hides_threadwide_tags
* new config setting: thread_subject
* new hook: sanitize_attachment_filename
* new hook: exit()
* list replies (new command parameter and config setting: 
auto_replyto_mailinglist)
* new config setting for accounts: encrypt_by_default
* new config setting for accounts: alias_regexp
* new config setting for abooks: shellcommand_external_filtering
* switched to setuptools
* detached urwidtrees library into separate project (and new dependency)

As usual, a quick hall of fame for recent contributors:

Just for completenes's sake: alot might use w3m on your box because you told it
to :) It will happily use whichever html2text converter you set up in your
mailcap (see http://alot.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq.html point 5).
This set up mirrors that of mutt and other console MUAs.

I agree with you. Out of interest: do you have any specific examples/complaints?
There is a recent fix for some recursion issue within the tree widgets
(https://github.com/pazz/urwidtrees/pull/4) that should solve some related
issues at least.

Best wishes,

[alot] announcing v0.3.6

2014-08-02 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.6; You can get a tarball here [0].

This version bump mostly reflects me catching up with the many fixes,
tweaks and some new features I received as pull requests.

Usage updates since v0.3.5:
* implement vim-style "move last" command (bound to G)
* fixes in reply/forwarding
* add option "--tags" to taglist command to display only a subset of the tags
* fix: safely interrumpt a command sequence
* use suffix ".eml" for temporary email files when editing
* interpret "compose mailto:foo at bar" commands
* new "tomorrow" colour theme
* Add some Emacs keybindings for prompts

As you have surely noticed, alot is no longer actively developed and entered a
sluggish maintenance mode. This is of course due to real life catching up and
also because I don't see any immediate need for improvement. I don't plan to
abandon it as my main email client any time soon and therefore still
occasionally take the time to comment on and merge pull requests.
Let me know if you'd like to get involved in further developing/maintaining 
this project.

Nevertheless: There are still tons of good ideas for improvements floating
around as issues on github and some even have proof-of-concept implementations
(syntax highlighting for instance #272,#612).

Bug reports, feature or pull requests via the projects github page [1]
are of course always welcome.

Excelent, thanks Jamie.
I wasn't aware of this setting and assumed that the stuff in the
gnupg config file only applies to gpg itself and not, as in alot,
for calls through the gpgme library.
Thanks for testing this Alain-Pierre.

   What you really want is to tell gpg to always encrypt messages to your
   personal key as well, which will always make them viewable by you.  This
   way you don't have to worry about saving unencrypted versions of the
   message to disk, or there being two distinct versions of the message

  You do not need to change alot, just notmuch emacs also doesn't need to
  do anything special to allow for this.  Just add an
  
  encrypt-to keyid
  
  line to your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf, where keyid is your personal keyid.
  Then all encrypted data is also encrypted to your personal key, making
  it always viewable by you as well.  Then you can just open your
  encrypted sent mail as you would any other encrypted mail.

 It's working! Thanks for the explanations.

I agree that this should be an issue for the MUA.
FYI: alot also normalizes newlines and tabs in subject lines..
https://github.com/pazz/alot/blob/master/alot/db/utils.py#L369
I cannot reproduce the original issue with the escaped UTF8 header not being 
interpreted.
This works fine for me in alot.

Is is possible that this mail's body is ctype 'text/html' and you haven't set up
your mailcap for html (as in FAQ #5 or issue #622)?

Yes, it seems you have set up gpg-agent correctly then.

> Do I need any special configuration on gpg-agent for it?

Not that I know of.

BTW: why did you not notice this earlier in the 'testing' branch? :P

I cannot think of anything else atm, sorry. Maybe Justus has an Idea?
Could you open an issue about this with some more details about the mail and 
your setup?
thx,

[alot] announcing v0.3.5

2013-07-19 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi Rub?n,

thanks for mentioning this. I must have accidentally dropped the corresponding 
paragraph
in the docs 
(http://alot.readthedocs.org/en/testing/usage/index.html#cryptography).
I'm almost certain I saw this documented a while back..

Basically, you need a running gpg-agent. Then, decryption of mails should happen
automatically once you open a thread. The same holds for signature verification
(the status of which will be mentioned in a pseudo-header).
This holds for mails that comply PGP/MIME only. "ASCII-armored" text in 
plaintext parts
is not dealt with.

If this does not work, you've found a bug that you should kindly report :)

HTH,
/p


[alot] announcing v0.3.5

2013-07-18 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.5; You can get a tarball here [0].

Most notably, this update comes with a rewrite of Thread buffers,
allowing among other things thread-tree based focus movements.
Alot now has full support for PGP/MIME encryption and signatures,
courtesy of Justus (teythoon). Apart from this, the new release comes with the
usual ton of fixes contributed by various people (see below).

I enabled the project wiki on github, so that people too shy to come forward
with pull requests for alot/extra/ can share their customizations,
in particular python-hooks [2].

Usage updates since v0.3.4:
* full support for PGP/MIME [de|en]cryption and signatures
* add missing "unattach" command in envelope buffer
* honour 'Mail-Followup-To' header and set if for selected mailinglists
* better handling of replies to self-sent messages
* make auto_remove_unread configurable
* rewrite thread buffer
* improved global move commands: first/last line, half-page up/down
* tree-based movement in threads (first/last reply, next/previous 
unfolded/sibling, parent)
* fold/unfold messages based on query string in thread mode
* respect mailcap commands that expect stdin
* Support different libmagic APIs
* new hooks called before/aftr buffer open/close/focus
* new global repeat command


Thanks goes to those who contributed:

[CLI] bug in notmuch setup

2013-05-05 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi all,

As mentioned on IRC earlier, current master seems to have an issue with 
`notmuch setup`,
which fails to write ~/.notmuch-config if not already present.

Here are excerpts from the discussion from #notmuch:
--%<---
19:08:29  i have no notmuch config so far. when i run `notmuch` i get 
questioned about my name and so forth. 
then:
19:08:31  Error canonicalizing /home/pazz/.notmuch-config: No such file 
or directory
19:14:01  it could also be a bug. There was some change recently to 
avoid overwriting symlinks with files.
19:15:29  pazz: I think you found a bug. try "touch .notmuch-config" 
and run notmuch-setup again.
19:21:54  bremner: i'm a little confused because i thought i'd done that 
already. anyway: notmuch setup 
fails iff there is no ~/.notmuch-config present.
19:22:38  if there is an empty file notmuch setup runs ok, exit code is 0 
and the file gets overwritten
...
19:43:55  Error canonicalizing /home/too/.notmuch-config: No such file

[CLI] bug in notmuch setup

2013-05-05 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi all,

As mentioned on IRC earlier, current master seems to have an issue with 
`notmuch setup`,
which fails to write ~/.notmuch-config if not already present.

Here are excerpts from the discussion from #notmuch:
--%---
19:08:29 pazz i have no notmuch config so far. when i run `notmuch` i get 
questioned about my name and so forth. 
then:
19:08:31 pazz Error canonicalizing /home/pazz/.notmuch-config: No such file 
or directory
19:14:01 bremner it could also be a bug. There was some change recently to 
avoid overwriting symlinks with files.
19:15:29 bremner pazz: I think you found a bug. try touch .notmuch-config 
and run notmuch-setup again.
19:21:54 pazz bremner: i'm a little confused because i thought i'd done that 
already. anyway: notmuch setup 
fails iff there is no ~/.notmuch-config present.
19:22:38 pazz if there is an empty file notmuch setup runs ok, exit code is 0 
and the file gets overwritten
...
19:43:55 Domo_ Error canonicalizing /home/too/.notmuch-config: No such file 
or directory
19:46:52 Domo_ apparently realpath(3) fails in case there is no such file ;/
19:50:50 pazz forgot to mention: i'm on 0.15.2+85~g44fe1f2d
19:52:55 bremner yeah, the offending patch is +79, I think
19:53:25 Domo_ the reason is obvious .. notmuch_config_save() executes 
filename = realpath
 (config-filename, NULL);
19:53:53 Domo_ maybe just additionally checking for ENOENT could fix that...

Brilliant idea!

here's some early feedback:

with entries pointing
  to files like the ones produced by say jabref?
  There, entries have some line like this:
  file = {Boz2012.pdf:papers/Boz2012.pdf:PDF}

Never mind preferences, I think originally, this thread was about dropping
*support* for the *original* vim plugin that lives in notmuch/contrib.
I think we can all agree that this is reasonable.

This should not keep you from hacking on your script, hosting
it whereever you like and support it.
For me, one of the charms of notmuch is exactly this extensibility.

Fullack! Thanks for spelling out my thoughts in great detail :D
I'm definitely for dropping support for all notmuch-vim scripts officially.
These scripts can live in their own repositories on github or alike
and we can link those in the wiki for completeness sake.

I use some custom filters like this in my setup [1].
Basically, you can add a custom filter to your filer chain by adding
a section with name "Filer.n" for increasing n..
Also check out afew's docs [2].

[alot] announcing v0.3.4

2013-02-19 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.4; You can get a tarball here [0].
This minor version bump is mostly to flush out all the nice small features
I hacked together or received as pull request lately.

It comes with tons of ui tweaks, fixes and a very nice patch series
that allows to send PGP/MIME encrypted mails.

Not included, but here's a peek into alot's future for the curious:
I've been semi-busy, making alot's tree-widgets available for the wider
urwid audience [2] and am currently rewriting alot's thread buffers to make use 
of
this library [3]. This will make it easy? to finally write a better mimeparser 
[4]
and display a messages MIME-tree as well as properly display nested 
encrypted/signed
mails..

More detailed usage updates since v0.3.3:

[alot] announcing v0.3.4

2013-02-19 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.4; You can get a tarball here [0].
This minor version bump is mostly to flush out all the nice small features
I hacked together or received as pull request lately.

It comes with tons of ui tweaks, fixes and a very nice patch series
that allows to send PGP/MIME encrypted mails.

Not included, but here's a peek into alot's future for the curious:
I've been semi-busy, making alot's tree-widgets available for the wider
urwid audience [2] and am currently rewriting alot's thread buffers to make use 
of
this library [3]. This will make it easy™ to finally write a better mimeparser 
[4]
and display a messages MIME-tree as well as properly display nested 
encrypted/signed
mails..

More detailed usage updates since v0.3.3:
* extra: zsh completion file
* thread mode: add tags pseudo header to message display
* case insensitive matching in Addressbook completion
* compose: interpret attach pseudo header
* compose: set initial message tags
* envelope: completion for 'From'
* reply/forward: more flexible construction of From headers (hello plussing!)
* thread mode: added bounce command for direct redirection w/o an envelope 
buffer
* thread mode: more robust pipeto command
* add config option prefer_plaintext
* prevent multiple 'index locked' notifications
* kill some zombies! (#325)
* search mode: bulk tagging
* less annoying multi-key bindings
* add global move command for scriptable cursor movement
* support for encrypted outgoing mails using PGP/MIME

I don't know. How would I know which file to remove?
I just removed the newest files in new/cur/tmp
but this doesnt solve the issue.
What would really help here is some more informative error message!

I tried with the `-d` option but did not see any local path in the output.

Personally, I don't really care if 'things are happening', as I'm kind of OK 
with my current
offlineimap configuration and would seriously consider switching from OI
only if it meant an improvement in speed or stability.

I test this code because I believe that the notmuch ecosystem
would benefit from a working solution and that reviews and bug-reports
are important.

Of course, I don't expect any miracles in terms of speed at this early stage.
But the bug I reported above should be addressed at some point in order not to
scare off potential users.

Have you considered including your code in offlineimap?
I'm asking because OI already solved some of the problems you might face later 
on
if you want to continue working on this.

* multi-threaded downloads
* the ability to read passwords not as plaintext parameter..

I tried it again, concurrently triggered some modifications
and killed the process afer a while.
(my modifications were not flushed during the run of your script as
the index was locked)
The index seems to be OK. So I'm afraid I cannot reproduce this reliably.

OK, i assumed i'd not have to download all messages because i already have them
on disk -- synced via offlineimap. but then i remembered that OI stores uses
its own naming scheme for the files in a maildir. so thats probably why your 
script
did not realize theyre already there. (maybe it should? it could look up the 
MIDs from notmuch)

i am kind of reluctant to reproduce this again (on my work-desktop).
All i did was start your script, writing to the index in another terminal in 
between (using alot)
possibly my cronjob fired a "notmuch new; afew.." in between also.
when I killed your script the index war broken.

Can i turn on some global logging for notmuch to debug this?
Maybe libnotmuch had trouble with so many db-writes at a time?

It seems to work, but i'm still waiting for the first run-through.

Downloading messages: 457 of 22831|

This takes ages. I hope it doesn't try to re-download all my messages everytime.

Another thing:
It seems that throughout its run, your script locks the notmuch database. This 
is particularly
annoying if you want to read/tag mails while waiting for a long sync-process. I 
think you only
really want to lock the index for a short time in the end.
Do you write to the index directly after a msg is downloaded?

/p

I just installed it from ubuntu 12.04's repository. the version was 2.2-2.
Installed from pip now, and it seems ok. you'll want to make more specific 
dependencies at some

Notmuch does incremental idnex updates once the initial index is build.
The initial indexing takes a while, depending on the number of mails you have
but 10 *hours* seems a little off. For me its ~5mins on the hdd and <2 on a ssd.

 I am trying to move from mairix to some better solution. mairix has been

 I decided to give a try to notmuch, but I has been suprised with
 estimated indexing time:
 
  Processed 4157 of 822462 files (10h 3m 42s remaining).
 
 At the beggining when there was 11 hours estimate I simply thought that
 those numbers are wrong. But they are not. This is really going to take
 that long. I could not believe that you all wait that long to index your
 maildirs:)
 
 Also if I understand correctly the concept, whenever I want to
 regenerate database, I have to move old away and create new one,
 correct? mairix worked that way that you run it and it updated its own
 database. Is it possible with notmuch as well? I simply do not want to
 wait 10+ hours for every database regeneration, thought I am willing to

Notmuch does incremental idnex updates once the initial index is build.
The initial indexing takes a while, depending on the number of mails you have

 My last question is related to notmuch and Alpine. Alpine is

Not sure what you mean here: If I compose a mail using gmails web interface
and type a prefix of someone's name I will get this contect as a suggestion.
My point was that using your tool, I did not get a contact suggested
for all prefixes.

I think this is a conceptual problem with your algorithm:
You look up *all* messages and add a name to your result-list
if it matches. This means you go through some condidate
as often as you index contains mails from/to him.
What one really wants is to ask the database to do something like
  "SELECT name,email from RECIPIENTS_OR_SENDER"
where RECIPIENTS_OR_SENDER is some imaginary list that stores
a set of contacts.

Bottom line: One would have to change the layout of the underlying
database (not likely) or do regularly update some cache
and only work on that. This is what some of the mentioned tools do if i'm not 
mistaken.

As mentioned before, I think you invalidate the Database object concurrently
while your long-running algorithm goes through all messages.
Xapian doesn't handle concurrent access to the index like a normal? database 
would.

 Since the idea was inspired by the completion on the Gmail web

as often as you index contains mails from/to him.
What one really wants is to ask the database to do something like
  SELECT name,email from RECIPIENTS_OR_SENDER
where RECIPIENTS_OR_SENDER is some imaginary list that stores
a set of contacts.

Bottom line: One would have to change the layout of the underlying
database (not likely) or do regularly update some cache
and only work on that. This is what some of the mentioned tools do if i'm not 
mistaken.

  And If I look for my own name, this takes over a minute,
  eventually dying. This could be an issue with libnotmuch though.
  Possibly, your algorithm takes very long and then reads from an initially
  opened Database object again, which was invalidated by concurrent writes of 
  other processes..

 Yes someone else pointed this out too.  Again I'm not sure how to
 proceed here.  I had a quick look at this last week and it seemed to me
 the limitation comes from within the python bindings for notmuch.  Do
 you have any ideas?

As mentioned before, I think you invalidate the Database object concurrently
while your long-running algorithm goes through all messages.
Xapian doesn't handle concurrent access to the index like a normal™ database 
would.
This means you are notified by this error that some changes were detected.
Maybe the error message should be more telling here though. Teythoon?

  Anyway, have fun hacking notmuch! If you are looking for a related project 
  to bring in your python skills
  I could think of one or two :D
 
 That would be wonderful.  To give you my background, I'm a graduate
 student in physics and I have to do a lot of C/C++ and python
 programming for my research.  Contributing to FOSS projects seems like a
 wonderful way to learn to collaborate and clean programming (we
 physicists tend to be sloppy programmers :-p).

nbook: a notmuch based address book written in python

2012-09-25 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hey Suvayu, welcome to notmuch!

I hope you are aware that there are already a few search based abook tools
around for notmuch (listed in the wiki, albeit hidden in the emacs docs):
http://notmuchmail.org/emacstips/#index14h2
I personally use nottoomuch-addresses.sh, which apparently does some advanced
caching voodoo for speed.

But to your tool; practice test:
I wasn't able to use wildcards or simply prefixes of names. This is essential
if you want to use it for tabcompleting contacts in a MUA.
The time lookups take seems to depend on how many matches there are:

No, that's what I use as well.
Note that this variant assumes your contact file is ~/.abook/addressbook. I'm 
not aware of format
issues for different abook versions so far. Also note that this will complete 
case-sensitive
strings of the format "Firstname Lastname ".

To debug this you can replay this introspect session and see how far you get.
Start alots python shell (pyshell command), then:

>>> from alot.settings import settings
>>> settings.get_addressbooks()
[, 
]
>>> settings.get_addressbooks()[0]

>>> A=settings.get_addressbooks()[0]
>>> A.get_contacts()

Hope this helps. Otherwise don't hesitate to open a bug report on github.

Well, alot does not pull your mails itself, so has no means of knowing when new 
mail arrives.
I personally use a mail indicator widget I wrote for my window manager that 
periodically
checks the notmuch index for new mail: 
http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Notmuch_mail_integration

Alot can of course fire shell commands. What it is lacking at the moment is the 
ability to periodically
fire custom (alot-)commands. This feature would not be hard to implement, but 
so far I did not bother
to do so as I considered mail-fetching not part of alots responsibility.
But you're not the first one to want this, so I guess it'd be worth it.

 Hi Patrick,
 
 thank you for answering and for this really good mail client!

  One reason I have not bothered to implement this so far is that in the long

  I want to have urwid Tree widgets as top level widgets in thread buffers.
  This would also allow move to next sibling/parent and so on.
 I did not know that it would be so complicated. But nice to hear that

 Exactly!

I think this will not so hard to do. Could you open up a feature request issue
on github for this?

  When you see the to prompt, type in some prefix of a (realname part of a)
  contact from abook and hit tab.
 This was my assumption. But it is not working here. Obviously I make a 
 mistake. Here is my
 config:

Short Answer:
This is not yet possible with the current design, no.
It is something i'd also like to see though and i have already a few ideas ho 
to do this.

Long version/dev info:
First of all, i only recently added the ability to interpret "gg" (or other 
multi-key strokes)
at all.. so thats done.
Now both for thread and search mode we use a toplevel `urwid.ListBox` widget 
iirc,
and those do not directly support "focus topmost line". But they do allow to
move the focus to some index and so implementing such a `MoveCommand` should 
not be hard.
One reason I have not bothered to implement this so far is that in the long run,

Nice idea!
So you can of course use this method to set an "Attach" header, but as of now
alot will not interpret and remove this when reading the edited text.
I guess one would also want that in the other direction if one really uses this 
feature:
When re-editing the message body, the editable headers part of the text should 
include
an Attach header line that lists the current attachments..

It will be used for tabcompletion when you compose a mesage.
When you see the "to>" prompt, type in some prefix of a (realname part of a)

[alot] announcing v0.3.3

2012-09-09 Thread Patrick Totzke
Good news everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.3; You can get a tarball here [0].
This version comes with lots of bugfixes and minor ui tweaks, most notably the
ability to interpret command sequences and sequences of keypresses.

It is now possible to overwrite default bindings which obsoletes the assumption
that all bindings are given in the users config. Therefore, we don't write a
config stub on startup if no user config file exists.

Detailed usage updates since v0.3.2:
* interpret (semicolon separated) sequences of commands
* new input handling: allow for binding sequences of keypresses
* add ability to overwrite default bindings
* remove tempfiles (email drafts) as late as possible for better error recovery
* confirmation prompt when closing unsent envelopes
* prevent accidental double sendout of envelopes
* fix focus placement after tagcommand on last entry in search buffer
* new command 'buffer' that can directly jump to buffer with given number
* extra: sup theme
* fix tagstring sorting in taglist buffer
* update docs
* lots of internal cleanups
* search buffer theming fixes (alignment of threadline parts)
* fix help box theming
* comma-separate virtual "Tags" header added before printing mails
* fix pipeto command for interactive (foreground) shell commands
* handle possible errors occurring while saving mails
* indicate (yet uninterpreted) input queue in the status bar
* handle python exceptions that occur during 'call' command

Thanks goes to those who contributed:

I'm not sure if this actually solves your problem, because
notmuch's search is message, not thread based:
If you search for threads that match "is:inbox and not is:muted", you will see 
threads
that contain messages which are tagged with "inbox" and not with "muted".
This means if you just tag one (or all) msg in a thread "muted" and there is a 
new response,
this thread will contain such a matching message again and show up in your 
result list.

To make this work, you need to set up your tagging script (that you run after 
'notmuch new')
so that it updates those new messages accordingly. If a msg belongs to a thread 
that has 
muted messages, also tag the new one muted.
I can pretty much recommend Justus' tagging script afew: 
https://github.com/teythoon/afew
One of the filters that it supports out of the box is exactly the "kill 
threads" function
you want.

   3. Would it be possible to have the feature 'kill a thread' like Sup 
   have? (see
   http://sup.rubyforge.org/README.txt).
  
  I haven't needed such a feature so I don't have a clear idea how it
  should work.  There are some patches/ideas about muting threads using
  notmuch generally around here.  I guess the simplest thing to do is hide
  a thread if it has a certain tag, e.g. muted as suggested by notmuch
  TODO file, unless you search for it explicitly.
 I  like this  solution,  I will  use it (adding 'and not tag:mutted' at the 
 end of my search).
 When  I'm not  interessed with  a long discussion on a mailling list,  I like 
 to  be able to 'kill'
 the thread so it does not reappear with every new mail.

I'm not sure if this actually solves your problem, because
notmuch's search is message, not thread based:
If you search for threads that match is:inbox and not is:muted, you will see 
threads
that contain messages which are tagged with inbox and not with muted.
This means if you just tag one (or all) msg in a thread muted and there is a 
new response,
this thread will contain such a matching message again and show up in your 
result list.

[alot] announcing v0.3.2

2012-07-22 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just tagged alot v0.3.2; You can get a tarball here [0].
This version comes with redesigned theming features and supports
highlighting/retheming of thread lines in search mode based on
notmuch queries or thread tags.

I had to change the syntax of theme-files and custom tags-sections
of the config for this, so you'll have to revise your config.
The good news is that there are converter scripts included
to help you out with this:

* extra/tagsections_convert.py for your ~/.config/alot/config and 
* extra/theme_convert.py to update your custom theme files.

This release also features a colour picker (slightly modified version from [2])
that might turn out helpful when writing themes.
Check out extra/themes for some themes I made, and consider posting yours
for inclusion there..

Detailed usage updates since v0.3.1:
* fix bad GPG signatures for mails with attachments
* new theme-files + tags section syntax
* re-introduce "highlighting" of thread lines in search mode
* new global command "call" to directly call and bind python commands
* add new buffers to direct neighbourhood of current one
* fix sanitize --spawn for X11-less use
* add new hook 'touch_external_cmdlist'
* make statusline configurable
* fix update result count after tag operations in search mode
* add config options and hooks for reply/forward subject generation
* add config options and hook for quoting messages in replies/forwards
* allow True/False/None values for boolean command parameters
* new config option "attachment_prefix"
* various small fixes for libmagic, header encoding and decoding

Thanks goes to those who contributed:

Hey Jamie,

IIRC, I could not get this to "run through" on my machine but thats surely due
to my limited knowledge about debian packaging.

Passwordless multi-account SMTP

2012-04-03 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi Jacek,

I am using msmtp for this: I keep my passwords in an encrypted
file and use a shellscript to decrypt and grep for passwords
in combination with msmtp's `passwordeval` option.
Have a look at

https://github.com/pazz/configs/blob/master/.msmtprc
https://github.com/pazz/scripts/blob/master/getpwd

I have a similar setup for offlineimap (configs also on github).
All this works quite nicely together with my ssh-agent (gnome-keyring-daemon)
which unlocks my gnupg keys upon login.

Hello,

I'm trying to use notmuch from Emacs. I have a number of SMTP accounts
through which I would need to send mail. Suggested solutions I have
found fall into 3 categories:

+ Gnus posting styles. (I'd rather stay clear of gnus, at present.)

+ Writing plaintext passwords in the MSMTP config files. (I'm rather
  relutctant to leave plaintext passwords lying around.)

+ Emacs' own SMTP library. (I don't understand how to get it to deal
  with many accounts in a non-gnus based way. It also seems to be
  undergoing an interface change in the transition from Emacs 23 to

To further complicate matters, I'm looking for a solution which queues
any messages which are sent while the machine is offline. (It seems
that MSMTP and Emacs SMTP library do offer some help in those
respects.)

[RFC][alot] design decisions

2012-03-21 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi all,

with alot 0.3 released, I started thinking seriously about proper? MIME-display 
and gnupg
integration for alot. I have to make a few design decisions here and could 
really use
some informed opinions from more experienced UI developers. My question in 
particular is: 

 How do I best integrate calls to external mime-handlers into my MVC event 
driven code?

I mostly know how to implement the individual parts but I struggle coming up 
with a
consistent way of organizing it all without compromising my current layout.


Background
--

Model. Alot uses an abstraction layer over notmuch's thread, message and 
database objects
to make them less fragile and generally behave more OOP-y: You can e.g. 
directly call
message.add_tags(['foo','bar']) and so on. This is made possible by a 
"DatabaseManager"
that maintains centralized and queued access to the notmuch index and deals 
with notmuch
exceptions like a locked index [0].

View/Controler. We use an event-driven interface (urwid.TwistedEventLoop, [1]) 
that
handles user input and maintains a tree of widgets that knows how to render 
itself.
Twisted offers a neat concept of "Deferreds" to organize call- and errbacks 
that we
already make use of [2].  Alot has a "MessageWidget" that displays a single 
message.

We can easily access and parse email messages into MIME-trees (msg.get_email() 
returns a
email.message object; pythons email module allows extensive and RFC compliant 
dealing with
this [3]).

We already offer full compatibility with the mailcap protocol to constuct shell 
commands
of external MIME handlers.

We know how to call external commands asynchronously; 
`alot.helper.call_cmd_async` does this
and returns a Deferred to which we can connect callback functions.


Objective
-
We want to turn a email.message into nicely rendered text and display it as a 
widget.
Calls to renderers should be done asynchronously, so that displaying large 
threads
does not block the interface unnecessarily.
The text representation should be stored in a way that can be incrementally 
updated
for use with message parts decrypted at a later point.


Bad Solutions
-

1. Current solution: walk the MIME-tree depth-first, use blocking calls to 
handlers
and create a fixed "body" string that is displayed in the widget.
A silly and hackish solution that we want to get rid of for obvious reasons.

2. Use a "PartWidget" that is able to display a node in the MIME-tree:
Its constructor creates the representation in a RFC compliant way, that is,
it decodes 'text/plain' parts, stacks other widgets of the same kind on top of 
each other
for multipart parts or calls external renderer to get a text representation.

Cons:
 * widgets should not be clever and contain/construct any kind of additional 
info
 * its hard to update these widgets when a part gets decrypted; 
 * decrypted parts are not available outside the displaying widget, widgets get
   replaced completely when one rebuilds the buffer (refresh cmd)
Pros:
 * we can use Deferreds relatively painlessly in the ui (as opposed to the 
db-wrapper)

3. Accumulate rendered text in a tree structure *inside* message-objects and 
let that
massage update the widget that displays it. One could let the widget register
some update-callback with the widget that rebuilds the widgets content.
These callbacks are called after the external handler has finished and the 
message-
internal text-representation has been updated.

Pros: 
 * rendered text/decrypted message parts end up in the message and are 
available to process
   and redisplay at will
Cons:
 * the calls to MIME-handlers are dealt with as Deferreds which depend on the 
twisted event

I'm surely missing an easy and elegant solution here.
Any pointers or comments are much appreciated.

[RFC] Split notmuch_database_close into two functions

Hi all,

I can confirm that this fixes a rather nasty core dump in a branch of alot
that closes and re-opens the database more frequently.

[RFC][alot] design decisions

2012-03-21 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi all,

with alot 0.3 released, I started thinking seriously about proper™ MIME-display 
and gnupg
integration for alot. I have to make a few design decisions here and could 
really use
some informed opinions from more experienced UI developers. My question in 
particular is: 

 How do I best integrate calls to external mime-handlers into my MVC event 
driven code?

I mostly know how to implement the individual parts but I struggle coming up 
with a
consistent way of organizing it all without compromising my current layout.


Background
--

Model. Alot uses an abstraction layer over notmuch's thread, message and 
database objects
to make them less fragile and generally behave more OOP-y: You can e.g. 
directly call
message.add_tags(['foo','bar']) and so on. This is made possible by a 
DatabaseManager
that maintains centralized and queued access to the notmuch index and deals 
with notmuch
exceptions like a locked index [0].

View/Controler. We use an event-driven interface (urwid.TwistedEventLoop, [1]) 
that
handles user input and maintains a tree of widgets that knows how to render 
itself.
Twisted offers a neat concept of Deferreds to organize call- and errbacks 
that we
already make use of [2].  Alot has a MessageWidget that displays a single 
message.

We can easily access and parse email messages into MIME-trees (msg.get_email() 
returns a
email.message object; pythons email module allows extensive and RFC compliant 
dealing with
this [3]).

We already offer full compatibility with the mailcap protocol to constuct shell 
commands
of external MIME handlers.

We know how to call external commands asynchronously; 
`alot.helper.call_cmd_async` does this
and returns a Deferred to which we can connect callback functions.


Objective
-
We want to turn a email.message into nicely rendered text and display it as a 
widget.
Calls to renderers should be done asynchronously, so that displaying large 
threads
does not block the interface unnecessarily.
The text representation should be stored in a way that can be incrementally 
updated
for use with message parts decrypted at a later point.


Bad Solutions
-

1. Current solution: walk the MIME-tree depth-first, use blocking calls to 
handlers
and create a fixed body string that is displayed in the widget.
A silly and hackish solution that we want to get rid of for obvious reasons.

2. Use a PartWidget that is able to display a node in the MIME-tree:
Its constructor creates the representation in a RFC compliant way, that is,
it decodes 'text/plain' parts, stacks other widgets of the same kind on top of 
each other
for multipart parts or calls external renderer to get a text representation.

Cons:
 * widgets should not be clever and contain/construct any kind of additional 
info
 * its hard to update these widgets when a part gets decrypted; 
 * decrypted parts are not available outside the displaying widget, widgets get
   replaced completely when one rebuilds the buffer (refresh cmd)
Pros:
 * we can use Deferreds relatively painlessly in the ui (as opposed to the 
db-wrapper)

3. Accumulate rendered text in a tree structure *inside* message-objects and 
let that
massage update the widget that displays it. One could let the widget register
some update-callback with the widget that rebuilds the widgets content.
These callbacks are called after the external handler has finished and the 
message-
internal text-representation has been updated.

Pros: 
 * rendered text/decrypted message parts end up in the message and are 
available to process
   and redisplay at will
Cons:
 * the calls to MIME-handlers are dealt with as Deferreds which depend on the 
twisted event
   loop and indirectly on urwid. This is exactly the kind of tight coupling I'm 
trying to avoid:
   Messages should be independent of the interface.
 * Messages with multiple externally rendered parts will rebuild their widgets 
more than once
 * references to old widgets (replaced e.g. after a buffer rebuild) will be 
kept, which keeps
   them from being garbage-collected

I'm surely missing an easy and elegant solution here.

[alot] announcing v0.3

2012-03-20 Thread Patrick Totzke
Hi everyone!

I have just released version 0.3 of my terminal GUI `alot`; You can get a 
tarball here [0].
This release features many bugfixes, a revised config syntax and a fairly 
complete user and API
manual [1].

Detailed usage updates since v0.21:
* revised config syntax!
* config file validation, better feedback on malformed configs
* themes read from separate files in their own (validated) syntax
* complete mailcap compatibility
* user manual
* direct addressbook type that parses `abook`s contacts
* completion for multiple recipients via AbooksCompleter
* completion for optional command parameter
* generate and set a Message-ID header when constructing mails
* add User-Agent header by default
* add sent and saved draft mails to the notmuch index and add custom tags
* guess file encodings with libmagic
* new thread mode command: "remove" to delete messages from the index
* new thread mode command: "editnew" e.g. to continue drafts (bound to 'n')
* new thread mode command: "togglesource" to display raw messages (bound to 'h')
* virtual "Tags" header for print and pipeto commands via --add_tags parameter
* much improved pipeto command in thread mode
* --spawn parameter for reply,forward,compose,editnew in thread mode
* --no-flush parameter for delayed flushing in tag,untag,toggletags commands
* make "signature as attachment" configurable; --omit_signature parameter for 
compose
* new envelope command: "save" to save as draft (bound to 'P')
* --no-refocus and --spawn parameter for edit in envelope mode
* header key completion for set/unset in envelope buffer
* "Me" substitution for ones own name/address in authors string
* new search mode command and search argument: "sort"
* renamed search mode command 'toggletag' to "toggletags"
* new search mode commands: "tag" and "untag"
* custom tagstring representation: hiding, substitution, colours, multi-matching

Thanks goes to those who contributed:

 2  Tom Prince ,
..everyone who send feedback and of course to all notmuch contributors.


After this release I will switch the git branching model [3], so expect the 
"testing" branch to
retire soon.

For the curious: The README.md lists some future goals together with their 
envisioned milestone
and pointers proof-of-concept implementations.

I could use some help from packagers. It should be relatively straight forward 
to package alot
but I haven't bothered to read up on the python packaging docs for 
$YOUR_DISTRI. A minor
complication could be that the docs should be generated at build time, which 
would introduce
some build-dependencies (mostly sphinx) that aren't runtime deps. The 
installation section in
the manual lists all dependencies, licence is GPL3+, let me know if you need 
any more info.

As always, don't hesitate to send feedback, bug reports, feature or pull 
requests via the
projects github page [2].

Cheers,
/p

[alot] reply from search mode

This could indeed be useful, but I'm not convinced this is a great idea in 
general:
What would that command do if your selection is a thread with multiple 
leaf-mails?
reply to the first? ask the user?

cheers,

afaik you don't need dbacl for afew to run if you're not using this bayesian
