Searching works by first indexing your messages into a [[http://xapian.org/][Xapian]]-database, which

+#+title: mu-guile: guile-bindings for mu
+#+style: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mu.css">
+#+options: skip t
+
+ Starting from version 0.9.7, =mu= had early, experimental bindings for the
+ [[http://www.gnu.org/software/guile/][GNU/Guile]] programming language, which is a version of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scheme_(programming_language)][Scheme]] programming
+ language, specifically designed for extending existing programs.
+
+ =mu= version 0.9.8 has much improved bindings, and they are [[file:mu-guile/index.html][documented]], with
+ many examples. You can find more examples in the =guile/examples= directory of
+ the =mu= source package.
+
+ It must be said that Scheme (and in general, languages from the Lisp-family)
+ initially may look a bit 'strange' -- all these parentheses etc.; so please
+ bear with us.
+
+** Some examples
+
+ Here are some examples; we don't provide too much explanation /how/ they do
+ what they do, but the [[file:mu-guile/index.html][manual]] takes you through that, step-by-step.
+
+*** Messages per weekday
+
+#+begin_src scheme
+#!/bin/sh
+exec guile -s $0 $@
+!#
+
+(use-modules (mu) (mu message) (mu stats) (mu plot))
+(mu:initialize)
+
+;; create a list like (("Mon" . 13) ("Tue" . 23) ...)
+(define weekday-table
+ (mu:day-numbers->names
+ (sort
+ (mu:tabulate-messages
+ (lambda (msg)
+ (tm:wday (localtime (mu:date msg)))))
+ (lambda (a b) (< (car a) (car b))))))
+
+(for-each
+ (lambda (elm)
+ (format #t "~a: ~a\n" (car elm) (cdr elm)))
+ weekday-table)
+#+end_src
+
+ Which might get us something like:
+
+#+begin_example
+Sun: 2278
+Mon: 2991
+Tue: 3077
+Wed: 2734
+Thu: 2796
+Fri: 2343
+Sat: 1856
+#+end_example
+
+*** Drawing graphs
+
+ We can also draw graphs from this, by adding the following to the script:
+
+#+begin_src scheme
+;; plain-text graph
+(mu:plot (weekday-table) "Messages per weekday" "Day" "Messages" #t)
+
+;; GUI graph
+(mu:plot (weekday-table) "Messages per weekday" "Day" "Messages")
+#+end_src scheme
+
+ This gives us the following:
+
+**** plain text graph
+#+begin_example
+ Messages per weekday
+ Messages
+ 3200 ++---+--------+---------+--------+---------+---------+--------+---++
+ | + + "/tmp/filel8NGRf" using 2:xticlabels(1) ****** |

+*** Export contacts to =mutt=
+
+ =mu= provides =mu cfind= to get contact information from the database; it's
+ fast, since it uses cached contact data. But sometimes, we may want to get a
+ bit more advanced. For examples, suppose I want a list of names and e-mail
+ addresses of people that were seen at least 20 times since 2010, in the
+ =mutt= address book format.
+
+ We could get such a list with something like the following:
+
+#+begin_src scheme
+#!/bin/sh
+exec guile -s $0 $@ !#
+
+(use-modules (mu) (mu message) (mu contact))
+(mu:initialize)
+
+;; Get a list of contacts that were seen at least 20 times since 2010
+(define (selected-contacts)
+ (let ((addrs '())
+ (start (car (mktime (car (strptime "%F" "2010-01-01")))))
+ (minfreq 20))
+ (mu:for-each-contact
+ (lambda (contact)
+ (if (and (mu:email contact)
+ (>= (mu:frequency contact) minfreq)
+ (>= (mu:last-seen contact) start))
+ (set! addrs (cons contact addrs)))))
+ addrs))
+
+(for-each
+ (lambda (contact)
+ (format #t "~a\n" (mu:contact->string contact "mutt-alias")))
+ (selected-contacts))
