dianyou 0.0.3 is out

  |   Source

I created dianyou (电邮) to solve improve my Gnus work flow.

Search mails

Most Gnus users use gnus-group-make-nnir-group to search mails. But it's not usable in "Summary Buffer". Its IMAP SEARCH Command is hard to use.

It could be replaced by dianyou-group-make-nnir-group which supports shortcuts. For example, you can input "f John s 1y2w2d" and select "imap" when Gnus asks the question "Imap Search in". It means search mails from John since 1 year, 2 weeks and 2 days ago.

Auto complete email address

I'm too lazy to set up my contacts. It would be better that Gnus could automatically collect email addresses from all received mails. So I created the command dianyou-insert-email-address-from-received-mails. The inserted email address is also inserted into the global variable dianyou-email-address-history which could be persisted by session.

Switch Gnus buffer

One annoying thing in Gnus is pressing "q" will close opened folder. I often pressed "q" when I only intended to switch to another Gnus buffer. Now I can use dianyou-switch-gnus-buffer.

Paste image from clipboard

Use dianyou-paste-image-from-clipboard. CLI program xclip should be installed at first.
