Is there currently any (good) implementation of the idea of the Remembrance
Agents in Emacs?
Thanks!

As far as I know the only thing remotely like that is the org-roam buffer
when you are in a file managed by org-roam. This would be simply a linkable
list of other roam notes which reference the currently viewed note

So not exactly what you're looking for I suspect but a similarish concept

According to this document:

Hyperlink: https://alumni.media.mit.edu/~rhodes/Papers/remembrance.html

the implementation was running already in Emacs!

There is more to it:

https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/RemembranceAgents

And picture: https://alumni.media.mit.edu/~rhodes/Papers/ra.small.gif

As I am developing HyperScope that is to augment the knowledge, at
least for those objects displayed within HyperScope but also in other
context or modes I could invoke something similar as Speedbar on the
side or in separate window that would show all relations to specific
object. It could also look from time to time into what text is user
writing and search relevant terms or tags to display such as
hyperlinks that are accessible on the side. The more information user
enters into the database and the more tags and relations have been
created the better the relevance.

In the context of web applications providing CRM Customer Relationship
Management there are always various related objects hyperlinked on the
same page. Same is valid for ERM or Enterprise Resource Management and
similar systems as they are already based on the relational databases.

Automatic hypertexting is another good feature that may be implemented
within Emacs for any relevant terms.

Thanks, I had seen those pages. Seems an old project and I haven't used it.
The Github page is here https://github.com/emacsmirror/remem
Has somebody installed it and tried it? It would be great to have a
screen recording demo.
So as I see, it basically shows in the minibuffer documents that are
related to what you write.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Your project sounds intriguing!

I've used it on and off in the past, within the past 2 years most
recently.  I populate the database it uses with both emails and org
files.  While writing, it shows lines from documents that match in a
separate window (whose size can be customized).

It does work but I find that I tend to forget about the remembrance
window most of the time so eventually I turn it off.  I never seem to
have enough screen real estate to justify its use (despite having 38"
and 27" monitors side by side on my desk ;-)).

There was a blog post early this year on this topic [1] which you might
find interesting.  It talks mostly about recoll [2] which is not so much
a remembrance agent but a search tool

HTH,

That is great, I am much interested in that. I was thinking it is not
available any more. I will test it.

On Debian, at least, there is a remembrance-agent package which has the
binaries and the Emacs package.

Thanks! I get an idea. Will try to use soon and let you know.
Thanks for the links, very helpful.
Question: when you say it uses emails, can it read any email database (I
have old ones from Microsoft outlook both Mac and Windows)? What if you
only use webmail, in which format shall you feed the RA?
Thanks

No, I don't think the remembrance agent can access webmail of any
sort.  It is file based.  In my case, all of my emails are stored
locally (I use gnus nnml groups and POP3 to retrieve my emails from the
mail host).

Ok, thanks. How do you specify the location and is the formatting ok when
showing you the relevance pieces of text from the local databases?

The agent needs to be told which files to index (check the man page for
ra-index) and, in my case, I point it to all .org files and all text
files under ~/Mail.  The formatting is okay as far as I am concerned but
this is a subjective aspect that will differ for everybody!

I think that all those formats can be converted to something you could
be using centrally on your computer.

I am recommending Maildir format. But that would depend of your email
client that you use.

I am using Maildir since years as each message is its own file and
concurrency is there and I never lose messages. I was using mbox and
mh and various email formats, nothing was ever so stable as Maildir.

Putting each person's conversation in separate folder:

~/Maildir/name@example.com

then allows me to easily access all previous conversation to that
person. This implies that saving messages must be configured to save
into such specific maildir automatically.

recoll is not remembrance agent. It is a desktop search tool that
supports various formats. There are other desktop search tools on
GNU/Linux as free software:

Beagle - Quickly find the stuff you care about.
http://beagle-project.org/

Recoll is a desktop full-text search tool.
https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/

Tracker is a filesystem indexer, metadata storage system and search tool
https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Tracker

NEPOMUK - The Social Semantic Desktop
https://nepomuk.semanticdesktop.org/

Terrier is a highly flexible, efficient, and effective open source search engine
http://www.terrier.org/

In general as Emacs user you may need to choose one that works on
command line. I am not sure if all of those work on command line.

Command line output can then be customized to appear in Emacs.

Then hyperlink may be constructed in Org file as well for various
relevant semantic searches.

For Hyperscope dynamic knowledge repository since we talked about
remembrance I have at least implemented the table column hlinks_rank
that increases its rank by usage. Maybe I should call it different.

Org mode does not track every specific node and is not multi-user:

- when was the specific node edited?
- which person edited specific node?
- what is previous version of that node?
- which hyperlink was accessed how many times?

Would it track that information without disturbance, then users would
have list of most used nodes, most accessed or frequently edited
nodes, groupware based nodes.

In that specific sense of tracking which URL have been accessed how
many times, this gives a list that helps to remember what could be
more relevant in context user is working in.

As the rank increases, the hyperdocument has its own tags, title,
information, and those words mostly used can be indexed and while user
is typing those words could appear on the side to give more popular
references.

Then access could be tracked on files as PDF, images, videos,
directories within Dired, then last of most accessed files could be in
front of us. Recentf does similar function in Emacs. But Emacs
bookmarks are not tracked and sorted by their access.

I will try downloading Remembrance from Debian, as maybe they have
patches that work.

recoll and other indexers could be glued into something similar as
remembrance agents. While user is typing some words in a paragraph
could quickly be accessed and relevant documents with those words
could appear on the side of the buffer.

SMART (String Matching Algorithm Research Tool)
https://github.com/smart-tool/smart

Does it use this algorithm? I am cloning that one to see how useful it
could be in relevance searches.

,----
| However, I can also see that the PostgreSQL database has already
| built-in features for relevance searches:
| 
| https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/textsearch-intro.html
`----

This makes then many external software pieces redundant, it becomes
again trivial to work with a database as underlying algorithm and
functions have already been programmed. Making a new remembrance agent
based on various structured information is making few higher level
functions that integrate the underlying capability of PostgreSQL
database and Emacs users' editing environment:

0. Create appropriate table in the database.

1. Make automatic or semi-automatic list of Org files or other files.

2. Make simple Emacs Lisp function to index all those files in the
   database. This is probably few lines function.

3. Make few Emacs Lisp functions that observes what users is doing and
   display to user relevant results with the possibility to construct
   hyperlinks from the result buffer straight to Org buffer, or
   possibility to open up those relevant files for more references.

PostgreSQL supports relevance search with its built-in functions:
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/textsearch-intro.html

Emacs package emacs-libpq is soon coming to GNU ELPA.

emacs-libpq @ Github
https://github.com/anse1/emacs-libpq

Using Emacs Lisp functions to store documents for indexing and to get
relevant results is then integration that may be useful.

I may use this functions for semantic locating functions in
Hyperscope. Think of something, put some words and get it, without me
putting great effort to parse words, format them, juggle with terms,
lists and so on. 

PostgreSQL database support is provided in general for any language
and there is support for specific languages:

My emails are in format .emlx which is only readable by MAIL. I also have
used Windows' Microsoft Office which stores I think in PLIST format.
Is it possible to convert them to Maildir format? I don't know how any
search software could search within those files if they are not converted.

GM

emlx2maildir convert emlx format to maildir
http://mike.laiosa.org/software/emlx2maildir/

There must be PLIST converters too.

Life will become easy with maildir, but I do not know which email
software you use. I am using mutt, not Emacs. mu4e package supports
Maildir and database search.

Basically that: as I copy (Control-C) text from the browser (Chrome), I
would like those copied sentences to be sent to a ordered list in an
OrgMode document:

- copied text 1
- copied text 2
- etc.

Any ideas? This would be very useful.
Thanks!

there is a tricky org-protocol thing you can do with emacsclient and a
capture template, but i suspect that chrome has an extension just like
firefox does called org-capture that does some of that in the browser
itself.  in firefox-esr, i select text and click the unicorn icon.

you will have to read about capture templates to create your own to
match the one that the org-capture extension uses [a single letter].

You can achieve something a bit like this using
org-protocol-capture-html
https://github.com/alphapapa/org-protocol-capture-html. I'm not
entirely sure whether you can bind the equivalent of a hook in
javascript to run every time you C-c, but if you can, then it should
be possible to match this exactly. You might also be able to wire up
org-protocol to the X clipboard (if you are on linux).

Best,
Tom

Thanks, guys.
I'll have a look.
I understand that using org-protocol in combo with org-capture I would have
to visit the Emacs window for capturing the copied text or not?
Because this is crucial, as I aim to avoid this step.
Thanks!

On macOS I've done _similar_  things to this (albeit not exactly what
you're asking) by simply generating org text for me to paste in.

For instance I have an applescript `org-current-tab`:

```
…
on org_current_tab()
    tell application "Google Chrome"
        set the_title to title of active tab of front window
        set the_title to my replace_chars(the_title, "[", " ")
        set the_title to my replace_chars(the_title, "]", " ")
        return "[[" & URL of active tab of front window & "][" & the_title
& "]]" as text
    end tell
end org_current_tab
```

Then from anywhere I can activate this applescript and all I need to do is
whack `C-y` in emacs and I get the link pasted in.

It's not hard then to extend this directly into emacs via the `osascript`
executable:

```
(defun org-current-tab
    ()
  (interactive)
  (unless (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
    (user-error "This command must be triggered in an org buffer."))
  (let* ((output (with-temp-buffer
                   (call-process
                    "osascript" nil t nil
                    "-e" "tell application \"Finder\" to set
current_tab_handlers to (load script file \"current_tab_handlers.scpt\" of
folder \"Dropbox\" of home as alias)"
                    "-e" "tell current_tab_handlers to org_current_tab()")
                   (substring-no-properties (thing-at-point 'line t) 0
-1))))
    (insert output)))
```

I'm not sure what environment you're in so you may not have access to a
system's scripting tool like Applescript but depending on the scripting
facilities of whatever you're targeting maybe you can get most of the way
there. At the worst you could add whatever text you want to your clipboard
and then write some elisp that processes it before writing it to your org
buffer.

To add to emacs a key binding that runs a script calling pandoc, 
something like (untested, you are asking for ideas), and inserting new 
text from clipboard

in_file=`mktemp --tmpdir convert.XXXXXX.html`
out_file=`mktemp --tmpdir convert.XXXXXX.org`
xclip -out -target text/html >"$in_file"
pandoc --output="$out_file" "$in_file"
xclip -in <"$out_file"

No need to setup org-protocol. Maybe it is possible to avoid temporary 
files.

TODO:
- Temporary files should be removed
- Unsure if pandoc is safe in respect to peculiar HTML formatting, maybe 
it has some special options for conversion of non-trusted files.

I don't know if it is exactly what you are looking for, but maybe you
might be interested in this extension for chrome and firefox that uses
org-protocol:

I've done similar sorts of things in Linux with xdotool and
xclip. These are very useful tools although a bit fiddly in
their usage.

This is very cool, thanks, and I very much use Automator.
I will have a look later, but it seems that you have to move focus to
Emacs, so it does not directly send something to a orgmode document
straight from the copy action in the browser.

If your capture template has :immediate-finish setting set to t, the
capture is done in background without raising Emacs frame.
See <F1> v org-capture-templates <RET> for more details.

Thanks. I have been trying to set org-protocol up, but... I can't find
where this package is (silly, innit?).
Where is the official org-protocol page where to download it?
Thanks!

It is built into the core org distribution.

Thanks. Then why is in
https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-protocol.html#installation this
confusing bit?

Installation

   -

   To load org-protocol.el add the following to your .emacs:

   (server-start)
   (add-to-list 'load-path "~/path/to/org/protocol/")
   (require 'org-protocol)

Perhaps documentation should be updated?

That problem may easily be solved by using external tools such as
PostgreSQL as it has a built-in relevance search and indexing
functions.

To index files into PostgreSQL database is not hard task. If you
happen to have a need, let me know and I will help.

Yesterday I have implemented relevance searć in relation to website
pages in the database. As often I wish to reference URLs from my
websites to our clients. Among 4000+ URLs one has to find it by
thinking and not by browsing hierarchy.

Until now I was using 2 inputs approach like:

1. Write one word or part of word that I remember being part of the
   page.

2. When faced with completion candidates narrow it down with second or
   third word.

Yesterday I have implemented this search by using relevance matching
feature and it works fast:

(format "SELECT pages_id || ' ' || pages_title || ' ' || ts_rank_cd(to_tsvector(pages_title || pages_description),%s,32 /* rank/(rank+1) */) AS rank FROM pages, to_tsquery(%s) query WHERE query @@ to_tsvector(pages_title || pages_description) ORDER BY rank DESC LIMIT 30;" query query)) ;; TODO this cannot order by rank

The query is prepared with this:

(defun rcd-sql-prepare-text-query (query)
  (let* ((query (string-trim query))
	 (query (if (and (string-match " " query)
			 (not (string-match "&" query)))
		    (string-replace " " " & " query))))
    query))

because I normally need WORD AND WORD. But I could make it any how, I
could search for (WORD AND WORD) OR WORD OR (WORD AND WORD) all is
possible. The function converts "my term words" into "my & term &
words" where & has the meaning of logical AND.

This shortens my search within Emacs to just one query and not having
two steps. It finds relevant results with accuracy and precision. My
searches locate the hyperlink within 10 first results, so I have
limited it to 30 results.

> There is als After all, words (TAGS, ...) have different meaning in

In their own meanings yes. But for the user's mind they may be
related and useful to be searched together. If tag is there it is
related to the object, search without tag and with tag may give quite
different results.

> I suspect, 'just' relating to tags (words) and showing the attached

Thinking of many other systems, in many of other systems tags are main
method of locating things. But it all comes from well organized user's
mind. If mind is not organized user will not know how to tag to make
future locating features work well. If it is tagged well locating
things is very fast.

- todo family son joe bicycle
- todo family son kim drivers-license
- todo business appointment
- todo health kidneys

When tags are used that way then locating things related to one son
among two sons become easy. Locating things for family is larger group
and locating business appointments becomes easy. When something is
done, the TODO should be changed to something else.

If user tags well then searches can be very useful.

But what if user does not tag well but still has some attributes
attached such as titles, body text, etc. then the relevance search may
help.

Isn't the real problem-to-solve finding the actual semantic context and
then to relate it matching information?

After all, words (TAGS, ...) have different meaning in different
semantic contexts.

I suspect, 'just' relating to tags (words) and showing the attached
document (part) to her is not very useful, yes?
