Someday, I join an IT company that is the first outsourcing company I work. They have many policies to protect the products. I’m not allowed to store anything in the internet service. It’s fine, but they also don’t provide the storage services for employees.
I need to store my notes, tips around work. Good, I found a solution to store my stuff. All of the company will provide to you an email account.
IMAP, that’s it (
APPEND Command) https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3501#section-6.3.11 can handle this.
How did I implenment?
I use GNUS to work around email. This is why I have this package.
gnus-summary-repo will check which article or file are newer before importing/exporting base on creation date and MD5 hash
M-x gnus-summary-repo-import-directory Import all files from a directory to the current Summary.
M-x gnus-summary-repo-export-directory Export all files in the current Summary to a directory.
M-x gnus-summary-repo-import-file Import a file to the current Summary.
M-x gnus-summary-repo-export-file Export a file in the current Summary to a directory.
M-x gnus-summary-repo-import-directory-all Rescan 9999 articles before importing
M-x gnus-summary-repo-export-directory-all Rescan 9999 articles before exporting
;; 1. Create a new group IMAP for only store your notes. ;; Example: nnimap+Gmail:Notes ;; 2. Go to your group with all of the articles (unlimited articles, you will be Summary mode) ;; 3. Use gnus-summary-repo-* function
;; Set your default directory (setq gnus-summary-repo-dir-local nil)
;; Set your FROM header, If is nil, it will be an importing date (setq gnus-summary-repo-header-from nil)
;; The regex list will be ignored when importing, default include .git/ directory (setq gnus-summary-repo-import-ignore '("^\.git.*"))
- Not yet support multiple repositories
- You must manually enter Summary mode.
