Hello,

I have been a contributor to the astroid email client [1], which is
based on notmuch. I've now fully committed to living in Emacs.

One thing that intrigued me about astroid, is its "rainbow tags" feature
(see screenshot at [1]). 

[1] https://astroidmail.github.io

I thought "This should be possible in Emacs, too!", and the result is
the attached Emacs package (along with a screenshot).


Cheers, and looking forward to your thoughts,

  --alexander

This looks great!

Do you have any plans on submitting this package to Melpa?


Cheers,

No worries. This is a busy list.

Thanks! Glad you enjoy it, too.

That was the other option. I thought I'd post it here first, to see
whether there would be any momentum for including it in notmuch itself?
When it's simply loaded, it doesn't do anything. Activating it is as
simple as requiring it. Thus, IMHO, making it part of the notmuch
package could be seen as "low risk".

As opposed to the "competition", this package works well regardless of
where in the format string the tags are located. ;-)

Also, I'm introducing a new mechanism for hiding tags from search
results. The vanilla notmuch.el offers this for the notmuch-hello screen
only.


Looking forward to your thoughts,

  --alexander

That actually sounds like a good idea. Maybe just send it as a patch to
the mailinglist? Not sure if there is really a different process for
getting something included in notmuch.


Cheers,

You're certainly welcome to send it as a patch (not to be confused with
"patches welcome!" ;)), but it might also make sense to get more
feedback.  My only concern would be dependencies, which seems fine
(there are none?). On the other hand, I tend to be not the most expert
or most opinionated about emacs UI fine points, so it would be good to
hear a bit broader feedback.

Well, here's one: I tried it with my usual theme, which is rather dark,
and it looked bad. Tried to fiddle with it a bit, but not long enough to
succeed, whence gave up.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Would it seem overly onerous to make a screenshot, an explain what you
disliked/would have expected? Happy to adapt the defaults, or have
different defaults for dark and light modes.


Many thanks and looking forward to your thoughts,

Sure, there you go. Only a small sample, but mostly the problem was
that, for some of the tags, the background and foreground colors were
too close for my old eyes.

Thanks!
Tom
