notmuch_abook v1.5

Notmuch addressbook

Latest Version: 1.7

Notmuch Addressbook Utility

Notmuch Addressbook manager for vim
===================================

DEPENDENCES
-----------

* notmuch with python bindings

INSTALL
-------

* Standalone install

if you do not want to use the vim script file, you can install the module as follows:

```
python setup.py install
```

or using:

```
pip install notmuch_abook
```

* Vimscript install

Use vundle to install this script, add to your vimrc:

```
Bundle "guyzmo/notmuch-abook"
```

for convenience, you can create a symlink to your bin directory:
```
ln -s $HOME/.vim/bundle/notmuch-abook/pylibs/notmuch_addresses.py ~/bin/notmuch-abook
```

CONFIGURATION
-------------

Open notmuch configuration file (usually $HOME/.notmuch-config) and add:

```
[addressbook]
path=/home/USER/.notmuch-abook.db
backend=sqlite3
```

where USER is your username (or at any other place)

If you use a non-default notmuch configuration file, you can set it in your vimrc with:

```
let g:notmuchconfig = "~/.notmuch-config-custom"
```

In your favorite mail filter program, add a rule such as (for procmail), so all new mail will be parsed:

```
:0 Wh
| python $HOME/.vim/bundle/notmuch-abook/pylibs/notmuch_addresses.py update
```

If you can't use procmail (eg if you are using offlineimap) then you could put the following few lines at the start of the [post-new hook]http://notmuchmail.org/manpages/notmuch-hooks-5/ (**before** you remove the new tag). Also note this is shell syntax, so you'll have to adapt if your hook is in another language.

```
# first update notmuch-abook
for file in $(notmuch search --output=files tag:new) ; do
cat $file | $HOME/bin/notmuch-abook update
done
```

USAGE
-----

For the first time, you shall launch the script as follows to create the addresses database (it takes ~20 seconds for 10000 mails):

```
python $HOME/.vim/bundle/notmuch-abook/pylibs/notmuch_addresses.py create
```

and then, to lookup an address, either you use the vimscript to complete (<c-x><c-u>) the name in a header field,
or you can call it from commandline:

```
python $HOME/.vim/bundle/notmuch-abook/pylibs/notmuch_addresses.py lookup Guyz
```

the script will match any word beginning with the pattern in the name and address parts of the entry.
