Notes

10. Testing again

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

Foo bar baz

9. Planner faces

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

Some people find the headings a bit large. Almost intimidating, even. I wonder what reasonable defaults would be...

8. planner quote

<dto> i'm so glued into planner I don't know where I end and it begins :-)
Chat with :dto on sterling.freenode.net#emacs

7. Merge improvement to planner-create-note-from-task

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

One of the things I really, really like about planner is the fact that people find it easy to hack. This means I don't have to come up with a lot of cool ideas. In fact, I rarely have to come up with cool ideas. When I do come up with them, I can let a half-baked implementation out into the wild for people to hack on. This is an example of such. Welcome to the wonderful world of Lisp hacking, Chris!

6. remember-bibtex: E-Mail from sf

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

Indeed, that's a good idea. Come to think of it, it should be relatively easy to make a remember thingy that lets you hit M-x remember, fills in a buffer with default values and the current URI somewhere, and lets you C-c C-c it to your bibliography file and/or your planner file...

5. Draft algorithm for moving notes when moving tasks: Chat with :Lukhas on leguin.freenode.net#emacs

Categories: None -- Permalink, Comment form

<Lukhas> now it needs a "Link back to task", and a "move linked notes along
         when rescheduling"

4. Planner brainstorming

<Lukhas> overkill is often linked with "fun", or "geeky"
<sachAway> <cough>planner</cough>
- tintin put a shared memory plugin on an evergrowing list of todos ...
<Lukhas> sachAway: good example :-)
<Lukhas> i'm using it for my homework now
<sachAway> Oooooh. <grin>
<sachAway> We're still figuring out how to do deadlines nicely. Any ideas?
<Lukhas> not at 07:30 in the morning :)
<johnsu01> sachAway: I don't think I need any other way to handle deadlines,
           really. But other people seem to.
- Lukhas doesn't handle deadlines at all
<johnsu01> sachAway: I don't understand what's wrong with just scheduling a
           task on the deadline that says deadline.
<sachAway> Some people want to know how far away the deadline is, I guess. I
           usually stick my deadline info into the tasks. (... by yyyy.mm.dd,
           or else! (TaskPool))
<johnsu01> Seems like that's what project pages do for me.
<johnsu01> #A0 _ Write article from 2004.11.19
<johnsu01> #A1 _ Article due from 2004.12.06
<sachAway> Oh, I see... =) Pretty nice!
<sachAway> So you review your plan pages to find out the deadline.
<johnsu01> (that's the project page view for Article)
<johnsu01> right.
<johnsu01> I also do things like:
<johnsu01> #A0 _ E-mail RMS from 2004.11.19 (Hacking)
<johnsu01> #A1 _ Expect reply from RMS from 2004.12.06 (Hacking)
<johnsu01> For keeping track of other people's deadlines.
<sachAway> Good idea! I don't keep track of most things I send out. Should
           probably... <muses> Might be a different module, or maybe I should
           investigate the use of bug tracking systems for personal
           information management.
<tintin> a count down timer at the bottom of emacs wont be bad :)
<tintin> in the planner mode

<sachAway> tintin: Timer toward?
<johnsu01> sachAway: But I do a lot of editing the task descriptions to
           include little status notes about them as well, like you mentioned.
<sachAway> Someone suggested making manual editing of task descriptions
           easier. Do you use planner-id, planner-edit-task-description, or a
           custom hack?
<johnsu01> At home I use planner-id, at work I do
           planner-edit-task-description.
<johnsu01> My work tasks are longer, so the clutter with id is more annoying.
<johnsu01> Plus I use stable there, and I was having problems with tasks not
           updating.
<sachAway> Hmm. I've long wanted multi-line tasks, but haven't quite figured
           out how to deal with them nicely. Sorting and listing might become
           too magical.
<johnsu01> It seems difficult. There is the ugly solution of making them like
           code, and having a line continuation character (Python's \) or
           something..
<sachAway> But it will become even harder to read, that way...
<sachAway> Hmm. Better support for linking tasks to notes, maybe.
<johnsu01> That I would like.
<tintin> sachAway: timer toward the deadline for the first task
<sachAway> That looks like a reasonable hack I can squeeze into, say, my train
           ride home. =)
<sachAway> Err, the note thing.
<sachAway> The timer.. hmmm. 
<johnsu01> If there were a way to have all of these links collapse ala outline
           mode, that would be nice.

<sachAway> johnsu01: Do you mean links in tasks, or outline and note headings?
<johnsu01> I was thinking in tasks. If we are now up to a context link, a date
           link, and a note link.
<johnsu01> or more, even.
<sachAway> Yeah, it's starting to get really long.
<johnsu01> But it's so nice to have it all there :)
<sachAway> So a module that puts all the information on one line, but hides it
           (or collapses the links to, like, the first N characters), and just
           displays the extra information in a temporary buffer upon some
           magic keystroke...
<johnsu01> That would be groovy.

3. How to use remember-planner

How do you file your notes under specific topics? Like all your
short stories are under short stories, right? How does that work?

You can use remember-planner to quickly add notes to planner files. After setting up remember-planner according to the notes in remember-planner.el, use M-x remember to open a buffer for notes. It starts out with a link to the current buffer. After you type in your note, hit C-c C-c (remember-region). This prompts you for a planner page to associate the note with. By default, notes are added only to today's day page. However, if you specify something else (ShortStories, for example), then the note is copied to that page. =)

2. Planner mode note customization

Ask and ye shall receive. =) I love hacking planner to fit people's desires...

;; What I want to have is the following:
;; - in the plan page, a note entry like
;; .#14  2004.10.05#3 12:24       Title of the note
;; Text of the note
;; - in the corresponding day page, an entry like
;; .#3  PlanPage#14 12:24       Title of the note
;; and no text in the day page.
;; To use: ;; (setq remember-handler-functions '(my/remember-planner-append)) ;; It may be a good idea to (setq remember-planner-append-hook nil). (defun my/remember-planner-append (&optional page) "Remember this text to PAGE or today's page. This function can be added to `remember-handler-functions'." (require 'planner) (set-buffer (get-buffer-create remember-buffer)) (let ((text (buffer-string)) (title (progn (goto-char (point-min)) (buffer-substring (point-min) (line-end-position)))) day-note plan-note (time (format-time-string remember-planner-timestamp-format (current-time))) start) (save-window-excursion (unless page (setq page (planner-read-name (planner-file-alist)))) (setq day-note (planner-create-note)) (setq start (line-beginning-position)) (if (or (not page) (equal page (planner-today))) (insert text) ;; Add it to the plan page (save-excursion (save-restriction (setq plan-note (planner-create-note page)) (insert " " (planner-today) "#" (number-to-string day-note) time "\t" text))) ;; Add the title to the date page (insert " " page "#" (number-to-string plan-note) time "\t" title)) (save-restriction (narrow-to-region start (point)) (mapcar (lambda (hook) (save-window-excursion (save-excursion (save-restriction (funcall hook))))) remember-planner-append-hook)) (when remember-save-after-remembering (save-buffer))) t)) E-Mail from Christophe Garion

1. Overlay handling

I finally figured out what was zapping my Japanese input on Planner pages: an overzealous extents+overlays zap in emacs-wiki. I read through a lot of the font-locking code and I think I'm beginning to understand how Emacs does it. Cool!

I've fixed it in emacs-wiki--dev and planner--dev. It seems to work over here. Hope no one else has problems! <grin>
