Before being distracted again, the impression I got from reading Anjal was
that to integrate with it, you needed to understand evolution-data-server
and camel. Anjal itself seems to be a relatively thin message/folder
viewer and composer, with the details hidden behind camel. So the next
step, I felt, would be to see whether you could write a notmuch data store
for evolution.

While discussing notmuch with some of the gnome developers they pointed
me to http://live.gnome.org/Anjal/ . The interface is suited to the way
notmuch displays threads. So i guess it would really cool if we can get
anjal to use nomuch as one of the backend.

That should also make sure you get a working mailclient in gtk with
minimal changes

Thanks for mentioning this, Aneesh.

Hooking up Anjal to notmuch was an idea that Chris Wilson had almost
immediately after playing with notmuch. I think he even started poking
around in the Anjal code base to see how much work this would be.

Chris, did you make any progress worth mentioning in your
investigations?

 Thanks for mentioning this, Aneesh.
 
 Hooking up Anjal to notmuch was an idea that Chris Wilson had almost
 immediately after playing with notmuch. I think he even started poking
 around in the Anjal code base to see how much work this would be.
 
 Chris, did you make any progress worth mentioning in your
 investigations?

I created them now at http://baruch.github.com/notmuch-gtk

They are not pretty and not meant to be, I'm currently just tracing out 
the client to get it somewhat functional as a mail client. The niceties 
will come once I actually get to use it as properly.

Hi,

I added a quick hack to show a message thread in notmuch-gtk and this 
makes it semi-usable. I don't actually parse the reply of notmuch-show 
but it's already passably usable to read mail.
