◆ nm_parse_type_from_query()

enum NmQueryType nm_parse_type_from_query ( char *  buf,
enum NmQueryType  fallback 

Parse a query type out of a query.

bufBuffer for URL
fallbackFallback query type if buf doesn't contain a type= statement
Return values
numNotmuch query type, NmQueryType

If a user writes a query for a vfolder and includes a type= statement, that type= will be encoded, which Notmuch will treat as part of the query= statement. This method will remove the type= and return its corresponding NmQueryType representation.

◆ nm_query_window_check_timebase()

bool nm_query_window_check_timebase ( const char *  timebase)

Checks if a given timebase string is valid.

[in]timebasestring containing a time base
Return values
trueThe given time base is valid

This function returns whether a given timebase string is valid or not, which is used to validate the user settable configuration setting:

◆ nm_windowed_query_from_query()

enum NmWindowQueryRc nm_windowed_query_from_query ( char *  buf,
size_t  buflen,
const bool  force_enable,
const short  duration,
const short  cur_pos,
const char *  cur_search,
const char *  timebase,
const char *  or_terms 

Windows buf with notmuch date: search term.

[out]bufallocated string buffer to receive the modified search query
[in]buflenallocated maximum size of the buf string buffer
[in]force_enableEnables windowing for duration=0
[in]durationDuration of time between beginning and end for notmuch date search term
[in]cur_posCurrent position of vfolder window
[in]cur_searchCurrent notmuch search
[in]timebaseTimebase for date: search term. Must be: hour, day, week, month, or year
[in]or_termsAdditional notmuch search terms
Return values
NM_WINDOW_QUERY_SUCCESSPrepended buf with date: search term
NM_WINDOW_QUERY_INVALID_DURATIONDuration out-of-range for search term. buf not prepended with date:
NM_WINDOW_QUERY_INVALID_TIMEBASETimebase isn't one of hour, day, week, month, or year

This is where the magic of windowed queries happens. Taking a vfolder search query string as parameter, it will use the following two user settings:

  • duration and
  • timebase

to amend given vfolder search window. Then using a third parameter:

  • cur_pos

it will generate a proper notmuch date: parameter. For example, given a duration of 2, a timebase set to week and a position defaulting to 0, it will prepend to the 'tag:inbox' notmuch search query the following string:

  • query: tag:inbox
  • buf: and tag:inbox

If the position is set to 4, with duration=3 and timebase=month:

  • query: tag:archived
  • buf: date:12month..9month and tag:archived

The window won't be applied:

  • If the duration of the search query is set to 0 this function will be disabled unless a user explicitly enables windowed queries. This returns NM_WINDOW_QUERY_INVALID_DURATION
  • If the timebase is invalid, it will return NM_WINDOW_QUERY_INVALID_TIMEBASE
