Re: Linking bibliographies with the Citar-Denote package a day ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prott,

You don't have to use LaTeX to use BibTeX. I use a BibTeX file to 
link notes and attachments to literature.

That I can cite these in my published work is an added benefit. I 
use Org Mode to write books and export it to PDF.

In other words, you can use BibTeX without knowing anything about 
LaTeX.

Regards

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot,

Not quite to a point yet where I will announce to the world. It 
needs some performance tweaking.

Denote will be part of a major rewrite of my series of blog posts 
on using Emacs for content-creators: 
https://lucidmanager.org/tags/emacs/

I will certainly give you a paragraph or two for the Denote 
manual.

I am surprised that an intellectual like yourself does not manage

Linking bibliographies with the Citar-Denote package 6 days ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Dear fellow denoters,

With some help from Joel Lööw, the Citar-Denote package is now 
ready for testing; https://github.com/pprevos/citar-denote/

This package allows you to create and access bibliographic notes 
from within the Citar bibliography completion system.

The package is no were near perfect the caching needs optimising.

Question for the group: how can I rewrite the 
'citar-denote--create-note' function so that the note title can be 
edited before it is created (the title is extracted from the

Re: using Denote with org-roam a month ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Saša and Prot,

I just added a feature request to the Org Roam UI list to include 
the ability to add Denote links to the graph.

Re: using Denote with org-roam a month ago

Hi Saša,

I just installed Org Roam and it seems that Denote links are also 
stored in the database. It just hoovers up any Org Mode links. So 
as long as your Denote files have a ID tag that Org Roam 
recognises, you can graph them with one minor modification.

The  org-roam-ui--get-links function fetches the links from the 
database. If you add (= links:type "denote"), then the graph will 
also show Denote links.

Seems to work pretty easily. Perhaps convince the Org Roam UI 
designer to add a variable for link types that can be modified so

Re: Slow down when Editing buffers with links 2 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot,

In my view, fontification for broken links as a default is 
unnecessary. Org mode itself has no such functionality.

Could it be a minor mode? Or perhaps an auditing function? In the 
same vain, I have been playing around with a function that audits 
all denotes and synchronises frontmatter with the filename and 
functions to audit tag names (correct typos, improve consistency).

P.S. The Emacs copyright assignment is finally sorted.

Re: Slow down when Editing buffers with links 2 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot,

org-ref uses fortification for dead links and that never caused me 
performance issues: https://github.com/jkitchin/org-ref. Citar has 
similar functionality.: 
https://github.com/emacs-citar/citar/blob/main/citar.el, but 
something misjudges link status.

The main difference would be that in citation software, the BibTeX 
files are cached).

Re: Slow down when Editing buffers with links 2 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

Hi Prot,

Org Mode naively does not check for the status of a link, it just 
fontifies them.

Link checking is usually a function that is run as part of regular 
maintenance. Perhaps a variable can decide whether link-checking 
is enabled, as such:

(defcustom denote-check-broken-link t
  "Whether to check for broken links."
  :group 'denote
  :type 'boolean)

Slow down when Editing buffers with links 2 months ago

From Peter Prevos to ~protesilaos/denote

I am noticing a delay in typing when editing a buffer in which a 
paragraph has multiple Denote links. I suspect that is because 
Denote checks the validity of the link for fontification.

Is there a way to disable the link checking on the fly?

Regards
