I've been a longtime mutt user, but have gotten somewhat annoyed of having to
open a new terminal when I want to read or reply to a Debian bug with mutt
bts show 123456'). How nice it would be to be able to fetch
a bug report from within mutt! And so, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you
mutt-fetchbug. It's extensively based on Zack's
mutt-notmuch script (a nice interface between mutt and
notmuch for searching mail, I highly recommend it).
By adding a line like the following to your
~/.muttrc, you can
simply press "
F7" and enter a bug number from your mutt index in
order to fetch and display a bug report's mbox file:
\ " unset wait_key ~/bin/mutt-fetchbug --prompt search ~/.cache/mutt_btsresults set wait_key " \ "fetch bug(s) (using bts show)"
The above presupposes you've downloaded
mutt-fetchbug and placed it with
executable permissions in
Those interested in making improvements or extending
mutt-fetchbug are more than welcome to do so, it's licensed under
the GPLv3+. It can be fetched from my git
Update: Fixed the broken link to mutt-fetchbug, thanks Christian for the heads up.
