Subject: orgmode as a service
Date: Tue, 27 Mar 2012 13:39:54 +0000 (UTC) [thread overview]
Message-ID: <loom.20120327T151644email@example.com> (raw)
I'm orgmode newbie. Before I reinvent a wheel, going to ask if this has already
been done: 'orgmode as a service'.
Or perhaps it doesn't need to be done and I'm tilting at yet another windmill.
Assume a workgroup of people - they use emacs / orgmode. Mostly Linux and OS X,
but there might be a weirdo or two still using Solaris.
They get TODOs from people who do -not- use emacs: managers, project managers,
Windows users, end users ... like that.
The input arrives (mostly) via email. 'Attend Meeting Foo at 08:00 p.m.' 'Fix
Bug umptyfratz this week'.
orgmode user manually inputs this data into emacs.
I had a few free minutes and thought 'there must be a better way': 20 minutes a
day to organize tasks * Y people on a team = a lot of wasted hours.
Is there a programatic method already coded up to take bits delivered to a
server, bang out the appropriate .org file and deliver it to the orgmode user?
data > firstname.lastname@example.org
orgmodeservice would be a daemon (perl, lisp, whatever) that mangles the data.
what: Task - record new hit single
when: June 01, 2012
adele.org > adele's desktop
* TODO Record new hit single <2012-06-01 Fri>
Am I Don Quixote slaying phantom dragons?
