Subject: Fixes for org-capture-templates-contexts
Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2013 21:04:54 +0000 (UTC)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <loom.20130110T215801-106@post.gmane.org> (raw)

org-capture-templates-contexts currently appears not to work. The structure
that the function 'org-contextualize-validate-key' expects to find in the
variable seems quite different from the structure described in the docstring.

Here are fixed versions of the functions 'org-contextualize-validate-key'
and 'org-contextualize-keys', both from org.el. I have also added some
- new context specifiers in-buffer and not-in-buffer
- in-mode and not-in-mode expect a symbol, not a regexp.
- if a rule specifies a template that has 'sub-templates', those sub-templates
  will also be affected by the rule. For example if you have templates 't',
  'ta', 'tb' and 'tc', you can specify a rule for 't' which will affect
  all of them.

I have also rewritten the docstring for org-capture-templates-contexts,
from org-capture.el.


(defcustom org-capture-templates-contexts nil
  "Alist of capture templates and valid contexts.

Each entry in the alist takes the form:

   KEY :: a string of one or more letters, identifying a
       capture template.
   USUAL-KEY :: if supplied, this is the string that identifies
       the capture template in `org-capture-templates', while KEY
       becomes the string which will be used to select the
       template only in the present context (see below).
   CONTEXT :: a context definition.

Each context definition (CONTEXT) takes the form:

   FUNCTION :: either a lambda form or a symbol naming a function.
      The function must take no arguments.
   SPECIFIER :: a symbol matching one of the context specifiers listed
   ARGUMENT :: either a string regular expression (for in-file and
      in-buffer), or a symbol (for in-mode).

Here are the available context specifiers:

      in-file: command displayed in files matching regex
    in-buffer: command displayed in buffers matching regex
      in-mode: command displayed if major mode matches symbol
  not-in-file: command not displayed in files matching regex
not-in-buffer: command not displayed in buffers matching regex
  not-in-mode: command not displayed when major mode matches symbol

For example, if you have a capture template \"c\" and you want
this template to be accessible only from `message-mode' buffers,
use this:

   '((\"c\" (in-mode . message-mode)))

If you include several context definitions, the agenda command
will be accessible if at least one of them is valid.

If the template specified by KEY has sub-templates, they will also
be affected by the rule (unless they have their own rules). For
example, if you have a template `t' and sub-templates `ta', `tb'
and `tc', then a rule for `t' will affect whether all of those
contexts are accessible.

You can also bind a key to another agenda custom command
depending on contextual rules.

    '((\"c\" \"d\" (in-file . \"\\.el$\") (in-buffer \"scratch\")))

Here it means: in files ending in `.el' and in buffers whose
name contains `scratch', use \"c\" as the
key for the capture template otherwise associated with \"d\".
\(The template originally associated with \"q\" is not displayed
to avoid duplicates.)"
