From: Eric Wong <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: lei: per-message keywords and externals Date: Thu, 25 Feb 2021 02:49:50 +0600 [thread overview] Message-ID: <20210224204950.GA2076@dcvr> (raw) Something I've been pondering for a bit is how to handle keywords (Seen, Important, Replied, ...) for messages stored in externals. I want "kw:" prefix to be a usable search term, like: lei q something interesting kw:seen lei q something interesting NOT kw:seen This is no problem for imported messages in ~/.local/share/lei/store. All the keyword info is stored in line with the rest of the Xapian index data. But, I also don't want to be wasting users' space by duplicating index data if they're already hosting inboxes for public consumption. So, it's looking like parsing out kw: ourselves and do extra filtering on our end when externals are in play is going to be a requirement... Or, just don't support searching using "kw:" with externals, for now; but still stash keywords somewhere when writing to traditional mail stores. And there's also HTTP/HTTPS externals, but those will have transparent caching/memoization into lei/store by default, soon.
