You can also use your local clone with git send-email.


This is a set of programs that contains two programs to convert an maildir to a rss feed, and another to delete programs from the rss feed. This was intended to be used with emails sent by rss2email and for viewing them with photon but it can be used with any RSS feed reader that can read from a file or stdin. A photon plugin for archiving/deleting items is displayed below.

#Photon Deletion Script

photon = require("photon")
os = require("os")

photon.keybindings.add(photon.NormalState, "d", function()
    local link = photon.selectedCard:card():link()
    os.execute("notify-send deleting " .. link)
    os.execute("maildir2rss-delete -maildir <your maildir here> -move archive -q -url '" ..
        link .. "'")

    -- Remove card
    for i = 1, photon.cards:len(), 1 do
        local card = photon.cards:get(i)
        if card:link() == link then
            photon.cards:del(i - 1)
