Has anyone setup filter to pipe image/* to something using ueberzug? I started making something but struggeling a bit with making the image dissappear correctly and to use correct size.

I'm, also hacking something together and encountering a similar issue. e.g. this is the gist of my filter I've hacked together: rows, columns = shutil.get_terminal_size(fallback=(80,80)) with ueberzug.Canvas() as c: aerc_img = c.create_placement( 'aerc', x=0, y=7, width=columns, height=rows/2, scaler=ueberzug.ScalerOption.COVER.value) aerc_img.path = filename aerc_img.visibility = ueberzug.Visibility.VISIBLE wait_for_input() It works, but always uses the fallback size instead of detecting the proper terminal size. Even if it worked it would be a bit of a hack as you'd have to use hard-coded values in the positioning and the sizing to account for the header and footer message UI. Some other issues I faced: Getting keypress detection working was a pain as we don't seem to just be able to read stdin. But the pynput package did the trick. Because aerc caches the output and ueberzug uses child windows, re-selecting an image attachment without closing the message first will just result in a blank screen. I don't think this could go much further unless filters were provided with additional metadata and events perhaps. On the plus side - it's good enough for me right now :)
