This is the 21th iteration on what happened in the last four weeks in the imag project, the text based personal information management suite for the commandline.
Well, as I said before, I have a really busy masters degree to do, so progress in imag slowed down a lot. Believe me or not, I don’t like that. I want to continue to work on imag as much as possible, but right now, I just do not have enough time for it.
I have a plan, though.
But first, lets see what happenend in the last four weeks.
The following issues and PRs were touched in the last weeks:
- #764 initialized the work on
- #838 bumped up the
- #839 updated dependencies
- #840 works on bulk-import for
- #841 is a bug report on the behaviour of
imag link internal --list
- #842 fixes #841
- #843 fixes another small bug in a UI
- #844 fixes a typo
- #845 adds
What will happen
Well, I cannot predict the future. As Christmas (and 33c3) is coming up, I don’t know how much time I will have to work on imag.
But what I want to do: Shift my focus a bit. Before I had a kind of Shotgun-Approach: Implement everything, work on multiple things all the time. I will not do this anymore. In fact, I will move issues from the 0.3.0 release to 0.4.0 and so on, shift everything by one release. That will free the 0.3.0 release and I will focus on one goal in this release then: A scripting API.
I want to develop an imag library for writing scripts for imag. I think about Ruby, because that’s a language I am familiar with. Another option would be Lua. I hope I can construct the scripting-API interface in a way so it can be re-used to write a Lua interface.
But that will it be for 0.3.0. Having a neat scripting API (not low-level but rather high-level) gives us the possibility to quickly write simple integrations with tools, for example to integrate mails, a wiki or something similar.
I hope that’s a plan. 0.3.0 is due to March 2017 as far as I remember, so there’s plenty of time for this.
My next post will be around mid-january 2017, so I think it is appropriate to wish you all a very fine Christmas and a good new year!
