Hi Andreas,


I like the idea of it.

Might be a nice way to jump to a file quickly since I could find the
link with `C-s' or `C-c o'. Maybe this helps in the TODO file of
small/medium project. I'll keep it and probably use it :-)


Regards,

  Sebastian

Hello everyone,

while using orgmode to organize data that is strongly bound to files
and directories, I came to the point where in addition to linking from
the orgfile to the target file/directory I longed to have it the other
way round, i.e. getting information about the files/directories
from the orgfile while browsing the filesystem. That led to the
following idea:

Orgmodes folding and linking capabilities are easily combined to
make rudimentary but comfortable file system browsing:

* [[file:test/dirA][dirA]]
** [[file:test/dirA/subdirA][subdirA]]
*** [[file:test/dirA/subdirA/some_file][some_file]]
** [[file:test/dirA/another_file][another_file]]
* [[file:test/dirB][dirB]]

Attached is a bash-script that generates this representation from a
given subtree of the filesystem as a proof of concept.

For each file/directory displayed search for any link to it in a
given orgfile and
   - provide links back to these occurrences
  and/or
   - display the tags and associated content (read-only).

The obvious weakness inherited from linking itself is synchronization on directory
structure changes. A possible solution would be to store ids as
hidden files for each directory or even for each file that is referred to.

Does anybody else see the benefits of such a mode?

Andreas

The script does not generate the backlinks only the file system
structure, so it's not really useful, sorry.
It would make more sense to implement that properly as a major-mode and
make each directory update its state from the filesystem and the org file whenever it
becomes visible than to have to manually recreate the static representation
everytime the filesystem's structure or the org file's content changes.

I know, but still. I have lot's of small to medium projects here and an
Org-mode file for each project. All ressources are listed in the
Org-file.

To have the filetree in there is a good way to jump the source file in
question and remember the code's structure easily a few weeks/months
later.


  * Customer calls
  * `C-,' until I see the Org-file
  * M-RET to record the BUG/feature request
  * Jump to file in question easily.


Another nice thing about it is, that the tree shows up in speedbar too.



Maybe the idea could make a nice contribution too? `C-c C-c' to update
the tree or include it dynamically. :)



I modified the script a bit to exclude some files and directories:



[-- Warning: decoded text below may be mangled, UTF-8 assumed --]
[-- Attachment #2: Type: text/x-sh, Size: 1658 bytes --]

#!/bin/bash

DIR=$1


# Define sufixes for directory names, that shouldn't be moved to the server:
declare -a exclude_dirs
exclude_dirs=('RCS' 'CVS' '.git' '_MTN' '.hg')

# define suffixes for files, that should not be moved to the server:
declare -a exclude_files
exclude_files=('.jpg' '.png' '.gif')



# This checks wether we have to run for this directory
function exclude_directory ()
{
    for suf in ${exclude_dirs[@]} ; do
        is_excluded=${1%$suf}
        if [ "$is_excluded" != "$1" ] ; then
            return 0
        fi
    done
    return 1
}


# This checks wether we have to run for this file
function exclude_file ()
{
    for suf in ${exclude_files[@]}
      do
      is_excluded=${1%$suf}

      if [ "$is_excluded" != "$1" ] ; then
          return 0
      fi
    done
    return 1
}



function toOrgRec {
    local BUFFER=""
    for d in $( echo "$(find $1 -maxdepth 1 -type d )" | tail -n +2 ); do

         if ! exclude_directory "$d"; then
            BUFFER="${BUFFER}
* [[file:${d}][$(basename ${d})]]"
            toOrgRec ${d}
            BUFFER=${BUFFER}$( echo "${RETURN_BUFFER}" | sed "s/^\*/**/" | sed "s/^ /  /" )
        fi
    done

    for f in $(find $1 -maxdepth 1 -not -type d); do
        if ! exclude_file "${f}"; then
            BUFFER="${BUFFER}
* [[file:${f}][$(basename "${f}" )]]"
        fi
    done

    RETURN_BUFFER=${BUFFER}
}

toOrgRec ${DIR}
echo "$( echo "${RETURN_BUFFER}" | tail -n +2 )"

Hello everyone,

the idea is now implemented as an extension to org-mode.

Available here: http://www.burtzlaff.de/org-fstree/org-fstree.el

org-fstree inserts the filesystem subtree for a given directory.
Each file/directory is formatted as a headline, provides links back 
to all headlines that are associated with it (by containing links to the file) 
and is assigned their tags.

Usage:
  - enter a line containing "#+BEGIN_FSTREE: <dir>" into an org buffer, 
    where <dir> is the directory, that is to be inserted.
  - while the cursor is in the line mentioned, press "C-c C-c"

Hope someone else than Sebastian and me finds this useful.

Andreas

I'll have a play with this this afternoon. If it works as advertised I
will find it very useful.

Thanks for the work!

I find this useful! Thans for putting this in elisp.


Some additions I could thing of:

  * a customizable list of directory names to skip.
    '("CVS" "_MTN" ".git" ".hg" "RCS") might be a good default.

  * Add directory names to the skip list

    #+begin fstree -sd (nogo notes)

  * Skip files by suffix

    #+begin fstree -sf (.jpg .gif ...)

  * Maybe require the option `-r' to be recursive.
    Files are often grouped in directories for a purpose. If I jott down
    some notes it would be great to just add files in that one directory
    that contains files related to the sections content.

  * Add a slash to the directory names to make the list more
    readable. As an alternative, I could imagine to use folder icons
    like speedbar, or use headlines without links for directories (the
    links all look the same, wether they are headlines or leaves).

Both implemented with the new options :exclude-regexp-name and :exclude-regexp-fullpath
From the documentation:
     - :exclude-regexp-name <list of regexp strings> , exclude file/directory names matching either 
                                                  of the given regexp expressions
       Examples: 
         :exclude-regexp-name (".*\\.pdf$" ".*\\.zip$"), excludes files/directories ending with either ".pdf" or ".zip"
         :exclude-regexp-name ("^\\.git$") , excludes files/directories named ".git"

     - :exclude-regexp-fullpath <list of regexp strings>, same as :exclude-regexp-name but matches absolute path to file/directory


>   * Maybe require the option `-r' to be recursive.

Is implemented as an option now: 
:non-recursive t

I added  "[D]" for directories and "[ ]" for files in the headline.
While that looks quite nice imho, I'm still looking for a more appealing formatting for the backlinks.
I've tried to add the backlinks as properties "Link1", "Link2",... , but links are shown as text in the column view.

Use column view for the links (EXPERIMENTAL): 
*** Test Tree
    :PROPERTIES:
    :COLUMNS:  %40ITEM %Link1 %Link2 %Link3 %Link4
    :END:

#+BEGIN_FSTREE: ~/tmp/ :non-recursive t :links-as-properties t

Any ideas?

Thanks Andreas, this is great. Especially the filtering and
non-recursive behaviour.

Together with the ability to limit the recursions, this is potentially
useful.  Thank you.

A longstanding item on my wishlist has been a Linux implementation of
an old MSDOG workalike, 4DOS with the 4dos shell.  That shell worked
alot like "dir" but it kept a field for comments.  So, with those
useless msdog 8+3 filenames, one could keep a note, and keep track of
...  Maybe you can get it.

DIred is pretty good, but I haven't found anything yet to do what I
would like.  I just tried typing notes into the org-fstree buffer of a
directory listing.  It was pretty nice, not what I want exactly, but
it could be useful in some cases.

Except for at least one thing: refreshing the directory deleted my
notes.  For example:

*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-help][org-help]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/ARCHIVE][ARCHIVE]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/orgcard][orgcard]]     Hmmm..?????
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Journal][Journal]]     ???
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/plotting][plotting]]    my experiments
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/LaTeX][LaTeX]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Classes][Classes]]     Working directory maybe
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/MEMO][MEMO]]        location of memo
composition bits
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/data][data]]        attachments
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/auto][auto]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-extra][org-extra]]   better to keep
the extra bits here for portability?
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-plot][org-plot]]    gnuplot and R
plotting, I think


Now when I refresh:
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/Classes][Classes]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/MEMO][MEMO]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/data][data]]

*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-extra][org-extra]]
*** [D] [[file:/home/ulod/org/org-plot][org-plot]]

Do you suppose this could be solved easily?

Thanks again,

Hello Alan,

I think you overlooked one aspect of org-fstree.
If you place a link to a file in the org file (outside the region
between BEGIN_FSTREE and END_FSTREE), e.g:

* Some note [[file:foobar][foobar]]      :someTag:

then this heading will show up behind the file in the fstree as a link
back:

#+BEGIN_FSTREE: some_path

...
** [ ] foobar { [[* Some note][Some note]] }     :someTag:
...

#+END_FSTREE

I see that it could in some cases be comfortable to add notes directly
at the file's entry and make them persistent on update. I might write a
function that automatically inserts a heading for the currently selected
file outside the fstree block, if time allows.

I'm looking for a better way to display those links and possibly also
the content of the headings and am happy to receive new ideas. I tried the
column view, but properties that contain links are displayed as text.

Andreas

But you can nonetheless open them with C-c C-o when on the right field.

Hm, that works for links to files, but strangely it doesn't for links to headings in 6.25:

* Target

* Test 
 :PROPERTIES:
 :COLUMNS:  %40ITEM %Link1 %Link2
 :END:


** Test Heading
  :PROPERTIES:
  :Link1: [[* Target]]
  :END:

** Test File
  :PROPERTIES:
  :Link1: [[file:somewhere]]
  :END:

True,

and I have no idea why that is so.  Very strange bug, one

Andreas,

    I am finding org-fstree useful.  Thank you.

    One thing that would make it more useful, at least to me, would be
if the directory listing were sorted.  Even alphanumeric order would
be nice -- would be enough for me -- but others might want the sort
order and type to be changeable...

    The other thing that would be nice (but I can manage without) is
to be able to indicate that the directory being listed is the
attachment directory.  I like to be able to do things like store
monthly statements from utilities with my notes concerning
interactions with that utility.

/Lindsay

Lindsay,

you remembered me to publish the new version 0.4 of org-fstree, that
features dynamic generation and deletion of directory contents on
visibility change and thus makes the complete filesystem browsable in
real time inside the org file. ( set option :dynamic-update t )
The entries are also sorted in alphanumeric order now.

Enjoy

Hm, I don't really get your intention, sorry. How do you want the
directory's content to be displayed if it is an "attachment directory"?

Thanks!  That really helps!

It could be displayed just like a regular directory being shown in
org-fstree.  I like to store documents related to projects in my
attachment directory, and sometimes want to seem them.  If I just open
the directory with ^A-^A-F to view it in dired mode, and an attachment
is a PDF, clicking on it opens the PDF file in emacs.  Not the same as
opening a link to the PDF, which is what org-fstree gives me.  So I
have been using org-fstree, and pointing it to the attachment
directory, and getting much nicer results -- other than having to
figure out a path to the attachment directory.  Would be nice if
org-fstree did that for me.

I have "att:" as  a link prefix to my attachment directory; if
org-fstree could expand link prefixes, that would be a nice general
solution (but what to do if the expansion isn't a local directory?).

Just an idea...  Thanks for this extension.

Usage of org's link prefixes is implemented and committed to the
repository.

By the way, for remote directories you can use tramp, ange-ftp or any
other emacs access method with org-fstree.
