Subject: Lazy load of org-protocol
Date: Sat, 5 Feb 2022 18:54:37 +0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <stlohv$17d8$1@ciao.gmane.io> (raw)


I would prefer to avoid
    (require 'org-protocol)
in emacs init file and to postpone loading till invocation of 
emacsclient with org-protocol URI.

The problem is a hack in org-protocol. URIs are actually treated as 
(relative) file names and magic is achieved in an advice for 
`server-visit-files' function. So the advice must be installed in advance.

My first idea was to avoid such magic and to create autoload function 
org-protocol-from-argv with body similar to that advice. If it were 
possible to get arguments from `command-line-args-left' then invocation 
would look like

    emacsclient --eval '(org-protocol-from-argv)' 

Unfortunately it is against design of emacs server protocol. If --eval 
option is given than everything other is considered as independent 
expressions. At the lower level there is no way to transfer `argv` as a 
list from client to server process.

It seems, it works if I add another advice to init.el that loads 
org-protocol on demand:

(defadvice server-visit-files (before org-protocol-lazy-load activate)
   (and (not (featurep 'org-protocol))
        (memq nil
	     (mapcar (lambda (loc)
		       ;; loc: (file-name . (line . column))
		       (not (string-match-p "\\(?:^\\|[/\\\\]\\)org-protocol:" (car 
		     (ad-get-arg 0)))
	 (require 'org-protocol)
	 ;; copy of org-protocol-detect-protocol-server advice,
          ;; move to a dedicated function
	 (let ((flist (if org-protocol-reverse-list-of-files
			  (reverse  (ad-get-arg 0))
			(ad-get-arg 0)))
	       (client (ad-get-arg 1)))
	   (catch 'greedy
	     (dolist (var flist)
	       ;; `\' to `/' on windows.  FIXME: could this be done any better?
	       (let ((fname  (expand-file-name (car var))))
		 (setq fname (org-protocol-check-filename-for-protocol
			      fname (member var flist)  client))
		 (if (eq fname t) ;; greedy? We need the t return value.
		       (ad-set-arg 0 nil)
		       (throw 'greedy t))
		   (if (stringp fname) ;; probably filename
		       (setcar var fname)
		     (ad-set-arg 0 (delq var (ad-get-arg 0))))))))))))

I hope, copy of original advice may be avoided by moving its body to a 
separate function in org-protocol.

Do you have have better ideas how to avoid eager loading of org-protocol 
from init file?
