Rather than a fork/exec for every message, why not have a persistent
subprocess that receives message IDs (+ filenames?) and can then do
arbitrary work and return back the proper tags?

[notmuch] [PATCH] Add an "--format=(json|text)" command-line option to both notmuch-search and notmuch-show.

2010-02-10 Thread Scott Robinson
Excerpts from David Bremner's message of Wed Feb 10 07:51:47 -0600 2010:

I made --entire-thread forced becuase it kept the JSON patch minimal. The way
the thread structure is calculated is closely tied into the message tree
recursion. It would have required a much more significant refactoring to get
both ways; and, I wanted the patch to have as few barriers to being merged.

However, as patch still hasn't been merged and probably needs to be rebased,
there doesn't seem to be any good reason anymore to avoid the work.

Except, I can't do it. As I noted in an earlier e-mail, I have to abandon this
piece of code. I'm a bit busy backpacking through Central America. :-)

This is getting involved. 

Maybe I'm missing something in this thread; but, why couldn't these complex and

Are you using "cc" or "gcc"?

Even when cc is an alias to gcc, there are different semantics. And "cc" vs.
"cpp" can be even more different on non-GCC compilers.

I wouldn't mess with it. :-)

[notmuch] Idea for storing tags

2010-01-11 Thread Scott Robinson
I wrote a script to store and sync my tags.

  * One filename per message-ID.
  * Line-feed seperated tags in each file.

Then the whole structure is controlled via git. Conflict-resolution and sync
comes for free.

It isn't clear what use-case the earlier e-mail is aiming to satisfy. This is
how I solved my tag sync issues, though.

Haha! I originally used "--format" and changed for some reason that escapes me
now.

Implementing an "mbox" formatted output in the current logic wouldn't be
archive perfect. The message body is emitted on a per-part basis.

What I would do is change the semantics of format->body to be called from
show_message. Then the text and json parts would point at the original
implementation passing off their per-part function pointers. And, a new mbox
implementation would just dump the full message body.

I selected cJSON because it was simple for integration. Given how libsha1.c is
included in lib/, I figured adding a depedency wouldn't be very popular.

Would it be better to link with a previously existing library?

I didn't use autoconf and friends. Just put in libtool where $(CXX) and $(CC)

Yes!

As the json work is a bit more substantial, is it preferable to start a [PATCH]
thread or link to a git repo?

[notmuch] Using notmuch from Ruby, Python, et al.

2009-11-25 Thread Scott Robinson
I'm hoping this thread will provide a guide for my efforts.

I'm writing a web frontend for notmuch in Ruby. But, the output from the
notmuch command-line is ambiguous. Therefore, I've started two branches
experimenting with different ways of providing hooks.

Which of these approaches are likely to be pulled upstream?

== Shared Library

I have modified the build to output a shared library. It's a small change
relying on libtool.

However, the archives indicate Carl dislikes libtool?

== JSON output

I added a --output=(text|json) option to "search" and "show." Then, emit json
results appropriately.

To accomplish this, I used the cJSON library sans parsing logic.

However, I saw discussion about providing a --format option?
