The sidebar on the left shows the folders; the index panel on the right shows the emails.
Almost every feature of the display can be configured, e.g. the visibility, size, colour and content of the sidebar. The layout, colour and formatting of the index panel.
Hopefully this will build the community and reduce duplicated effort.
NeoMutt is just a name. When FlatCap created the project, he needed a name that was unused on GitHub.
Yes NeoMutt is a fork of Mutt.
We still merge all of Mutt’s changes into NeoMutt, but it’s getting harder because of the growing differences between them.
Many hundreds of Mutt users have taken the time to patch Mutt to add features. Unfortunately, it’s usually the same patches as everyone else and effort is wasted.
Also, there are some heroic developers who have been maintaining multi-thousand line patches:
Sidebar has been completely overhauled, merging features, fixing bugs, tidying code and documenting the results.
Sidebar is our first success story. The patch was accepted upstream and released in Mutt-1.7.0.
19 other Features have been tidied and documented.
NeoMutt now has all the big features that existed as patches. It’s stable and up-to-date with Mutt. So, what next?
Below is a list of areas we’d like to work on:
