Bug in backlinks search 4 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot et al.,

I noted that a search for backlinks yields results that are not 
technically links.

As I am experimenting with saving the complete Denote archive as a 
JSON file for visualisation, I noted that the backlinks search 
also returns hits on my notes with embedded JSON snippets, e.g.: 
{"id":"20190402T054953","name":"Adams (1994): The Knot 
Book"}. Denote now suggests a link from the note holding this JSON 
to the referenced note.

I brute-force corrected the denote--retrieve-location-in-xrefs

Re: How I have been using the :missing-only attribute 5 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Stephen, I also used the :missing-only option a bit in pretty 
much the same way you did.

Prot, you previously mentioned that you got false positives. Not 
sure what method you used previously. I wrote a function that 
lists all static links in an Org file. I am unsure how dynamic 
blocks work, but surely this function can be plumbed into the 
denote-org-dblock--files function to exclude these matches from 
consideration.

(defun denote-org-dblock--extract-static-links ()
  "List all Denote links outside a dynamic block."
  (let ((link-ids '()))

I need some help with regex and xref 5 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/ef-themes

Dear fellow Denoters,

I am working on the denote-explore package, which includes 
visualisation tools for Denote

I am writing some functions to save the structure of the Denote 
files as two JSON files. One with metadata about each note and one 
with all links.

The function below gives me grief. I am using the 
denote-id-only-link-in-context-regexp variable to find all links 
in files matching regex. However, using this variable gives me a 
parse error. Also the denote-org-link-in-context-regexp variable

Hi Prot,

Glad you like my little folly. Theme-buffet is proper food 
compared to my fast-food version.

Happy for you to add a link to the Ef Themes manual. I am not 
releasing this formally and will leave it on GitHub as is.

Regards

Frivolous code: disco-ef-themes 5 months ago

Hi folks,

I just created a frivolous minor mode to randomly change between 
Ef Themes.

Hi Prot,

I have not yet written release notes for anything I develop.

Perhaps it is a habit I should start.

Updated denote-explore package 7 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi folks,

I have just updated the denote-explore package: 
https://github.com/pprevos/denote-explore

It does three things:

1. Summary statistics: Count and visualise keywords and note types
2. Random walks: Generate new ideas using serendipity
3. Network visualisation: Visualise your Denote network of links

It contains a rudimentary network visualisation function, relying 
on the R language. I will need some D3.js expertise to improve the

Re: Proposed solution for linking to non-Denote files 1 year, 10 days ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot,

Perhaps a section in the Denote manual covering exporting Org and 
Markdown files would be useful.

You can use this as you see fit:


Exporting Denote notes
──────────────────────

   When exporting Denote notes to, for example, a website or PDF,
   there is a risk that the same file name is used with a new
   extension. This can be problematic because it creates files with

Re: Proposed solution for linking to non-Denote files 1 year, 11 days ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Nobiot and relict007,

I am using the Melpa version and just checked the GitHub 
version. Apparent I wasted my time worrying ... :)

Please ignore my email.

Perhaps the text and code I wrote about exporting would be good to 
add to the manual to prevent the duplicate ID issue in the first 
place.

Apologies to waste your time.
