#What is NeoMutt?

  • NeoMutt is a project of projects.
  • A place to gather all the patches against Mutt.
  • A place for all the developers to gather.

Hopefully this will build the community and reduce duplicated effort.

NeoMutt was created when Richard Russon (@FlatCap) took all the old Mutt patches, sorted through them, fixed them up and documented them.

#My patch

My patch do add a fancy sidebar menu, which I feel is better than the original one. I'm not planning on upstreaming this, since it's pretty much the ugliest code in the world. I'll try to keep up to date with the upstream if people are planning on using it.


# Sidebar Patch --------------------------------------
set sidebar_format = "%B %?N?%N?"
set sidebar_visible = yes
set sidebar_width   = 30
set sidebar_short_path = yes

#Where is NeoMutt?


While NeoMutt is technically a fork of Mutt, the intention of the project is not to diverge from Mutt, but rather to act as a common ground for developers to improve Mutt.

Collecting, sorting out and polishing patches to be incorporated upstream (into Mutt), as well as being a place to gather and encourage further collaboration while reducing redundant work, are among the main goals of NeoMutt. NeoMutt merges all changes from Mutt.

More information is available on the About page on the NeoMutt website.

Mutt was created by Michael Elkins and is now maintained by Kevin McCarthy.
