Not much in today's actual post. The video is a continuation of the last one on org-capture.
The video goes over how I set things up to pop up a new frame to do a capture even if emacs isn't on screen (as long as it's running) by hitting F1. I would have preferred to bind to C-c c - the same as within emacs but I havn't figured out how to do that in Ubuntu or Mint Linux yet.
Here's the elisp code for the configuration file to do the heavy lifting. I can't for th elife of me remember who's blog I found it on. If anyone knows, please leave a comment - I'd like to give credit where credit's due:
(defadvice org-capture-finalize (after delete-capture-frame activate) "Advise capture-finalize to close the frame" (if (equal "capture" (frame-parameter nil 'name)) (delete-frame))) (defadvice org-capture-destroy (after delete-capture-frame activate) "Advise capture-destroy to close the frame" (if (equal "capture" (frame-parameter nil 'name)) (delete-frame))) (use-package noflet :ensure t ) (defun make-capture-frame () "Create a new frame and run org-capture." (interactive) (make-frame '((name . "capture"))) (select-frame-by-name "capture") (delete-other-windows) (noflet ((switch-to-buffer-other-window (buf) (switch-to-buffer buf))) (org-capture)))
The command I bind to the keyboard shortcut in my window manager:
emacsclient -ne "(make-capture-frame)"
There will be a third capture video in a few weeks where I'll talk about scheduling and agendas. Right now, I'm playing with org-gcal to sync with my Google calendar and want to figure out a config I'm happy with before making that video.
