Re: signature 11 months ago

From Jeremy Friesen to ~protesilaos/denote

One of the adjustments I made when attempting the Luhmann sorting was to have the following prefix schema:  00aa11bb22cc

This allowed for:

01-animals
01aa-mammals
01aa01-elephants
01ab-insects
02-jobs
02aa-agronomist

In setting the above up, it will sort on the file-system as I wanted.  (Though denotes date prefix does collide a bit)

I even setup a ruby script to help sorting/categorizing: https://github.com/jeremyf/dotzshrc/blob/7dcfaa818ad93ccd0c8c41a9a05e850fa48a97ab/bin/sort-unsorted

More hacking with Denote 1 year, 3 months ago

From Jeremy Friesen to ~protesilaos/denote

Hello fellow Denoters,

I've switched from Org Roam to Denote and have been building out my personal workflow.  Org Mode is my "data structure" and Denote is my organizing system of that data.

Now I'm building additional functionality from the data and organizing system.  I wrote about this in https://takeonrules.com/2022/11/19/project-dispatch-menu-with-org-mode-metadata-denote-and-transient/.

More useful is the "package" I wrote:

https://github.com/jeremyf/dotemacs/blob/main/emacs.d/jf-project.el

Already that package is extended beyond what I wrote about.

Denote is not at the foreground of the "package".  But it highlights how Denote maintains a strong separation of concern by instead being a nimble and useful building block.

I think a section on publications on Denote would be useful for those exploring options; and for helping folks continue to churn the rich soil that is extensible packages.

Thank you and example of denote usage 1 year, 4 months ago

From Jeremy Friesen to ~protesilaos/denote

Hello fellow denoters,

I want to thank all of the contributors to Denote.  I especially want to thank Prot for both the creation of this package and it's ongoing maintenance.  Working with Denote is an absolute joy; and reminds me of what software should be.  I deeply appreciate the conversational and instructive tone of the denote documentation.

I haven't contributed to denote's code base but wanted to share my denote configuration.  My hope in sharing is to provide examples of denote from other implementers.  To spark ideas and even get feedback, though none is expected.

You can see my current denote config at https://git.sr.ht/~jeremyf/dotemacs/tree/main/item/emacs.d/jf-denote.el

/I previously wrestled with the mental demons of filing paper work to assign copyright to FSF, but hope to use this conversation as a means of self-encouragement./

Sincerely,

For assigning copyright, I absolutely would like to and prefer to but am uncertain how to do so.

For the dwim behavior, I am often leaving marks without fully thinking about them.  So my preference is to not try to determine dwim but to default to line and allow for "over-loading" that method to do region.  It's far more rare that I want the "pulse" the region.

Feature request: Pulse region between mark and point 1 year, 10 months ago

From Jeremy Friesen to ~protesilaos/pulsar

Thank you for your work on pulsar.  I've been using it and love it.  I am wondering about adding the ability to pulse between mark and point.  I want a gentle reminder of "where I set my mark".

I have an implementation to uses the universal prefix arg to either pulse the line or the region.

Sincerely,

Jeremy
