This is (for now) a rather simple hack to make an RSS feed from mail with a certain tag using notmuch. It's somewhat feed2imap-centered, since that's what I use, and many cleanup hacks for the incoming mail is based on what feed2imap yields.
The newer versions are instead targeting the sluk feed reader.
Also, I'm not really a python wizard, so improvement suggestions are much welcome and needed.
put something like this in ~/.notmuch-to-feedrc
[entries] tag=rek number=10 [feed] title=My blog link=http://example.org/blog/ description=This is my recommended stuff!
How it works
First, it uses the cnotmuch bindings to find all entries with your chosen tag. It will then take a number (also specified in the config file) of entries and produce a feed from them. These entries will consist of the first html/mime part of each mail, or, if there isn't one, simply the first part of the mail. If sluk's custom header X-Entry-URL is present, it will be used as link and Guid for the entry, otherwise the first link found in the entry will be used.
Python libraries used
- notmuch python bindings
- The HTML mime-part will be included as-is, without any cleaning-up
- Images are not shown when using the feed2imap image attachment method (with sluk they are)
- When using the sluk feed reader, the generated feed may be invalid (this is a work in progress)
