I wanted to get your feedback, and have a bit of discussion here.
Let me know what you think…
I have been working to tweak how
[[Title of a Note]] works when you are writing a note.
The idea is simple. I want to peak into what the note is when I am choosing from the list.
I have a very crude sample implementation in my local PC – it’s like one or two lines additional to the current implementation of “completion-at-point function (or capf)” within Org-roam.
See the gif animations below.
With the standard functions of Company Mode, you can press either
C-h when you are selecting a title brings up the note’s buffer in another window, or in a separate child-frame if you have only one window (Doom seems to make it only
F1, and only in another window; I don’t know how it does the latter).
This gif is an example of pressing “C-h” to show the note’s content in a separate window.
This can be further tweaked with the help of another package called
company-box like this gif.
company-box, I believe the icon can be changed to something more suited for an Org notes, etc.
I think the “pop-over” should do something about the overflow of text when paragraphs are too long to display (I am not sure if this is even possible yet).
I will probably continue using it for a while to see if I like it myself.
