Emacs: spontaneous DENOTE live stream today (2023-05-22) at 14:00 Europe/Athens time
No work at home, no work for hut project, so I am doing a live stream
denote package. I want to get into unit testing with the
ert package that is built into Emacs. The video will be recorded
and can be watched later.
I have never written unit tests before. I want to learn them as a
general skill, but also because I want
denote to have comprehensive
tests in place before its next major release.
I understand I am announcing this without much prior notice (current time 13:02 +0300). No worries!
Denote is a simple note-taking tool for Emacs. It is based on the idea that notes should follow a predictable and descriptive file-naming scheme. The file name must offer a clear indication of what the note is about, without reference to any other metadata. Denote basically streamlines the creation of such files while providing facilities to link between them.
Denote’s file-naming scheme is not limited to “notes”. It can be used for all types of file, including those that are not editable in Emacs, such as videos. Naming files in a constistent way makes their filtering and retrieval considerably easier. Denote provides relevant facilities to rename files, regardless of file type.
