shop talk, going deep with vimwiki 

oh NO lmao

i just spent two hours trying to figure out some pieces of this, only to realize a good chunk of what i want is already available in the dev branch by simply setting an option in .vimrc

@cstanhope my younger brothers were twins, i get a lot of that too

shop talk, going deep with vimwiki 

namely those next steps are:

* when i generate backlinks for a tag, i want diary entry links to show the title (first line minus the "# ") rather than the filename

* that title, in addition to the autopopulated date format, should also have a comma-separated list of second-level headers in it. i want this to automatically update on BufWrite.

shop talk, going deep with vimwiki 

i continue to fancify my vimwiki setup and see how much i can get it to approximate org-mode for the uses i need.

recent improvements:
* moved from pathogen to plug.vim
* added vim-airline to my plugins
* italics display properly in vimwiki files
* the template that gets read in when a new vimwiki diary file is created auto populates the date format i like for my top header.

the next steps involve custom vimscript functions and i'm just not there yet.

@tobiasfdl a limited anecdotal answer: in my experience there's a lot of general, undirected enthusiasm for worker cooperatives among DSA folks, but not necessarily a lot of overlap in people's work or organizing focus.

i will solve this eventually, even if i have to write a selenium script

passing my markdown text through pandoc and then w3m -dump or lynx -dump *almost* works but ends up looking goofier than the raw markdown does.

@emsenn i didn't see that, did you figure something out?

i would like to take my raw markdown notes and easily paste (for example) a correctly-formatted list into gmail. somehow even with pandoc and xclip this is proving to be difficult!

i just spent the length of my morning coffee dreading work before i realized it was Sunday

@wetpaper im trying to get mine to sleep right now so i can't respond to this whole thread as thoroughly as id like right now. But I feel your pain about quiet time and sleep schedules, and you're damn right this isn't how it's supposed to work
