Adding per-message notes in gnus summary buffer

by Ruben Berenguel <>

how to install

M-x package-install [RET] gnusnotes [RET]


Still in beta. I've been using it intensively for the past days,
with no problems at all. Use it at your own risk. Customize the
note file location and to install just

(require 'gnusnotes)

I have done my best to not use any fanciness. If you'd rather have
notes with three fields (like adding the date to the note and
highlighting it), it should be pretty straightforward to do so if
you know a little emacs lisp. Feel free to do so (in fact, I may
add this particular option...)

Command suggestion:

(require 'key-chord)
(key-chord-define-global "nm" 'mostlymaths/gnus-notes)
(key-chord-define-global "km" 'mostlymaths/gnus-notes-delete)

Only tested in emacs 24.1.1 with NoGnus 0.18. Check at your own
risk (it should not harm anything, but as always, beware ;)

Code starts here:

This is the main hook to gnus, through the custom-defined field in
summary view. To use it, you should add the following to your .gnus

gnus-summary-line-format "%U%R%z %(%&amp;user-date;  %-15,15f  %B%s%) %un\n"
