Hello Chris, I 've stumbled on few of your blog post which are very inspiring! Let me say that I like Vim's modal editing, but would also like to use org-mode. However, I'm not sure whether using Emacs+evil mode or distros like Spacemacs/Doom is the right direction to go. Moreover, org-mode might be great for writing notes, but as far as task management is concerned I preferred apps like taskwarrior. So, considering you're a long time Emacs user (when using Emacs I'm also using Elfeed), I wonder if you did use org-mode and whether it is possible to integrate it with (neo)mutt nicely? My main usage of editor is writing content (articles, posts, slide-presentations, longer study notes, working on books etc.) where I'd use either markdown (org-mode) and ConTeXt. Besides that, I'd just write some PHP/HTML/CSS for a CMS I am using. So, moving toward vim/mutt/mu would be simplification of my workflow in comparison with the Emacs based ones... Sincerely, Gour -- One who restrains the senses of action but whose mind dwells on sense objects certainly deludes himself and is called a pretender.
Thanks for reaching out, Gour! Despite all my time with Emacs, I've just never gotten into Org. I suppose I'm just not that organized! Elfeed's Org integration was mostly the work of Matus Goljer and Remy Honig, and I just avoid breaking it, so it's not reflection of my own habits. I have no comments about Org integration with email. > So, moving toward vim/mutt/mu would be simplification of my workflow > in comparison with the Emacs based ones... Per my article about Mutt, I'm happier without Emacs playing a central role in my email workflow. It's been over three years, and I still feel that way. Better to compose independent tools than to duct-tape tools together in Emacs. With Mutt I could easily swap Vim out for Emacs+Evil or any other editor. But when I was using Notmuch, each component was interdependent; it even mattered which specific version of Notmuch was running inside (notmuch.el) vs. outside of Emacs (notmuch binary).
