This package makes it easy to quickly take a note in a new heading displayed in a new indirect buffer. It’s similar to Org’s built-in capture functionality, but it’s not limited to one capture “session”, so you can pop up a new note at any time, without interfering with other activities in Emacs.
Used with Yequake, it can also pop open a new Emacs frame.
If you installed from MELPA, you’re done.
Installing with Quelpa is easy:
- Install quelpa-use-package (which can be installed directly from MELPA).
- Add this form to your init file:
(use-package org-popnote :quelpa (org-popnote :fetcher github :repo "alphapapa/org-popnote"))
M-x customize-group RET org-popnote RETand configure the options
org-popnote-outline-pathaccording to your preferences.
M-x org-popnote RETto pop up a new note.
Yequake makes it easy to display
org-popnote in a new Emacs frame. Here’s an example configuration:
(use-package yequake :custom (yequake-frames (list (cons "org-popnote" (list (cons 'buffer-fns '(org-popnote)) (cons 'width 0.25) (cons 'height 0.5))))))
Then bind a global keyboard shortcut in your desktop environment to run this command, which pops up a new Emacs frame showing a new
emacsclient -n -e '(yequake-toggle "org-popnote")'
