macsAir Collecting frequent-committer miles

I am excited to announce new releases of many of my lesser packages, i.e. many of my packages that are not Magit .

While working on these releases it turned out that I would have to ask for a new release of one of the third-party packages some of them depend on. While waiting for that to happen, I passed the time by sprinkling some general remarks about releases of Emacs packages across this set of release announcement. It was the topic on my mind.

Some of the below releases should probably have been announced separately but I don’t have the time for that right now.

Ghub v3.0.0

This prepares for the initial release of the forge package, an important extension to magit .

Add support for Gitea, Gogs and Bitbucket. ghub.el supports these forges directly, but also add new libraries gtea.el , gogs.el and buck.el , which provide convenience wrappers just like the existing glab.el . #67

No longer split the repository into multiple Melpa packages. I.e. the glab.el library is now part of the ghub package.

Add support for automatic GraphQL unpagination. #68

GraphQL was designed around the idea that you should be able to “ask for what you need and get exactly that”. Unfortunately this does not cover the “look, if I persist, then you are going to hand me over all the data anyway, so just caught it up already”, which is what Forge needs.

ghub--graphql-vacuum provides a way to unpaginate all cursors in the returned data without having to write a lot of boilerplate. Callers have to provide the query as an s-expression that corresponds to the root request. The queries needed to follow cursors in arbitrary locations within the returned data, are automatically derived from that query.

ghub-fetch-repository fetches information about a repository. If also serves as an example for how to use ghub--graphql-vacuum .

The initial queries used by ghub-fetch-issue and ghub-fetch-pullreq are pre-narrowed variants of the initial query of ghub-fetch-repository . Pre-narrowing is somewhat similar to the use of fragments, but unlike that, it doesn’t result in lots of duplicated boilerplate and/or lots of variables.

There is very little documentation and everything is still very much subject to change.

Bind url-show-message to nil so that the more useful messages displayed by the callers of this package are visible to the user instead of the less useful “Contacting host: api.github.com:443”.

Sometimes Github returns an HTML document instead of the promised JSON when an error occurs. Try harder to extract some meaningful information from that document.

Work around a bug in older Emacsen that prevented auth-source from retrieving saved secrets. #64

Deal with a chicken and egg problem concerning 2fa. #65

Add new ghub-clear-caches command because if things go wonky it is nice to know it isn’t the cache.

Add new ghub-repository-id function. This function works for all supported forges and always returns a string, even for less successful forges that can still get away with using integers as ids.

Add new ghub-graphql-rate-limit function.

Closql v1.0.0

This library was written for epkg . The upcoming forge package, an important extension to magit , also uses it. This release, v1.0.0 none the less, removes the scary “don’t you dare use this yourself” comment but I continue to consider it an internal library and there still is no documentation.

Added optional replace argument to closql-insert . It non-nil, then this function uses INSERT OR REPLACE INTO instead of just INSERT INTO , allowing the caller to replace an existing row.

Added function closql-reload , which, given a potentially outdated object, returns an up-to-date object.

Replaced the slot property :closql-columns with :closql-table . The value has to be a table instead of a vector of columns and its name can be different from that of the slot, which previously was not possible. The slots are now determined by quering the database.

Added new experimental function closql--iref .

Epkg v3.1.1

Nothing interesting here. In the process of making closql useful for forge , I made an incompatible change that makes it necessary to adjust epkg .

Use the :closql-table slot property of closql-1.0.0 instead of the :closql-columns property provided by older releases. Borg v3.0.0

Borg can now be used as a secondary package manager alongside package.el . When used like this, then Borg itself should be installed from Melpa. This is still experimental. For instructions and help see #46 . The manual does not yet cover this topic.

The commands borg-assimilate and borg-clone now require the user to confirm before acting on a package that is known to be (potentially) unsafe. Note that this does not imply that other packages are safe, and also that the epkg package has to be available for this to kick in for the most dangerous packages ― those from the Emacswiki, into which anyone could trivially inject malicious code.

The new files borg.mk and borg.sh were added, replacing files that were previously located directly in the super-repository.

The super-repository still contains a Makefile , which users who do not use the Emacs.g collective have to update manually, but failure to do so should be less problematic now, because this file only defines a single target needed to make borg.mk and borg.sh accessible during bootstrap, while using these files for everything it previously did itself.

This makes it easier and safer to improve the respective functionality iteratively and to create configurations that are not based on the Emacs.g collective.

The new user configuration files /.emacs.d/etc/borg/config.el and /.emacs.d/etc/borg/config.mk are loaded by borg-build and make if they exist. These files are primarily intended to set the variables borg-emacs-argument (which see) and EMACS_ARGUMENTS . The latter can also be used to set EMACS and/or to define new make targets.

The new command borg-insert-update-message inserts information about drones that are updated in the index. The inserted text is formatted according to the commit message conventions documented in the manual. In git-commit-mode-map C-c C-b is bound to this command.

A new make target tangle-init was added which recreates init.el from init.org .

Added new variables submodule.DRONE.recursive-byte-compile and borg-byte-compile-recursively .

The user is asked to save relevant buffers before compiling.

The values of submodule.DRONE.no-byte-compile are now treated as relative to the top-level. The documentation already claimed that was the case before.

All build output is appended to the same buffer now. Previously each build created a new, unspecialized buffer that never got cleaned up. The buffer is automatically shown on every build but can easily be buried using C-q .

The command borg-insert-update-message now also handles assimilations and removals.

Emir v2.1.0 Add new emir-update-github-packages command, which takes about fifteen minutes compared to the five hours emir-update-packages takes. This uses the new emir-gh-foreach-query function, which uses Github’s Graphql API instead of fetching every repository including the ones that have not seen a commit in years. With-Editor v2.8.0 When using the sleeping editor, ensure we edit the correct file even if the calling process changes the working directory and provides a relative file-name. #55 Ensure with-editor-post-{finish,cancel}-hook are run in the correct directory. Add new macro with-editor* , which is like with-editor except that it evaluates the envvar argument at run-time. Hl-Todo v2.0.0 Use a dedicated syntax-table when searching for keywords instead of the major-mode’s syntax-table. Before doing that I experimented with improving the used regexp to account for differences in major-mode tables, but that was not feasible; fixing it for one mode ( python-mode ) meant breaking it for another ( clojure-mode ). #27 #28 #30 During initial fonification, when a regexp match is found outside of a string or doc-string, then continue the search. Previously we failed to continue because the “partial match” was considered as “past last match”. #26 Speedup initial fontification. Match a variable amount of punctuation after a keyword. Add “TEMP” to hl-todo-keyword-faces . Hl-Todo v2.1.0

Yes, on the same day as v2.0.0 . While working on this blog post I realized that I want TODO keywords to be highlighted in markdown-mode buffers too, so:

Also turn on hl-todo-mode in buffers whose major-mode derives from text-mode . This is done by adding text-mode to the value of the option hl-todo-activate-in-modes , i.e. you can revert this if you want to. In org-mode buffers hl-todo-mode isn’t turned on even though that indirectly derives from text-mode because that mode provides its own keyword handling.

In buffers whose major-mode derives from a text-mode, as defined by the new option hl-todo-text-modes , highlight keywords even when the appear outside of strings.

As a side-note; please consider releasing your own packages more frequently.

Sure, there is always one last feature that you want to implement before creating a new release and every time you create a release someone shows up with a pull-request the next day. But those are not good reasons not to release.

You might even want to create a new release if all commits since the last release are rather insignificant. You certainly don’t want to create a release for every typo fix, but if half a dozen commits have been sitting on master for a year, why not bump the subminor part of the version number?

For example:

No-Littering v0.5.15 Theme file-names of a few more packages.

On the other hand you also want to release v1.0.0 at some point. There is never a perfect time unless you do a sprint to implement all those features you wanted to implement before doing so.

Apparently too few maintainers ever find the time for that. While 24% of all packages on the Emacsmirror are stuck on v0.* only 12% are at v1.* and only 8% at >= v2.* . (The 55% that didn’t bother to ever tag any release at all are arguably a much bigger problem though, but that will be the subject of another post.)

So if the perfect time for v1 never comes, then you might as well do it when the opportunity presents itself.

For example:

No-Littering v1.0.0

This package has proven its worth. It serves the intended purpose well and I have no intention of making any significant changes anytime soon.

Nothing else changed compare to v0.5.15 .

Sure, one day I will go back and make it much better and everything. But the thing is this package does what it is supposed to do right now. It is “done”. So lets call it v1.0.0 .

Elx v1.2.5 Adapt elx-licensee to work with licensee v9.9.4 . Fix a regression in license detection.

The following packages were created this year. It is too early to tell whether I will act on my ideas on how they could be further improved any time soon or whether it turns out that they are good enough and that those additional features I was thinking about don’t actually sound all that useful anymore to make it necessary to implement them before v1 .

It might happen that after a year I still intend to implement those additional features but still haven’t gotten around to actually do so. By that time those packages, while not be “done”, but they will have proven themselves anyway, so I will tag v1.0.0 . But for now I give them some time to mature before that big step. While I think v1 should come earlier than it usually does, I also don’t think it should happen as soon as things work properly for the first time.

Moody v0.4.0 Force a mode-line update when a new window becomes active. Improve documentation and code-comments. Minions v0.3.1 Add new option minions-mode-line-delimiters .

Oh, and I almost forgot. Yesterday I released two completely new packages:

Outline-Minor-Faces v0.1.0

Unlike outline-mode , outline-minor-mode does not change the appearance of headings to look different from comments.

This package defines the faces outline-minor-N , which inherit from the respective outline-N faces used in outline-mode and arranges for them to be used in outline-minor-mode .

Backline v0.1.0

An outline heading does not extend to the right edge of the window when its body is collapsed. This is unfortuante when the used face sets the background color or another property that is “visible on whitespace”. This package adds an overlay to extend the heading’s appearance all the way to the right window edge.
