This page is an attempt to provide a simple, web-accessible, list of Leo's rich set of features and capabilities.

Feature Type Description Notes
Node Actions plugin   [1]
c.db core commands access a persistent database [2]
.deb files feature create .deb files from the Leo repository [3]
@edit file type file directive entire external file in node body [4]
incremental search feature Alt-S forward, Alt-R reverse [5]
Active Path plugin active_path.py extends filesystem awareness [6]
clone-find-all command create clones of nodes containing search term [7]
iPython integration plugin ileo.py exposes iPython features to Leo [8]
search file core commands find_h(), find_c() - select_h() select_c() [9]
@folder     [10]

nodeActions

[1]

Revision 1608 contains a new nodeActions plugin, modeled after the old FileActions? plugin, designed to invoke a script when a node is double clicked based on a pattern match to the node's headline.

c.db

[2]

c.db is a dictionary. The keys can be anything pickleable.

.deb files

[3]

You should now be able to create a debian package for leo :-)

I created a package in ubuntu 8.10, it may work with other systems. Try it here: http://vivainio.googlepages.com/leo_4.6-1_all.deb

You can try creating your own debian package by going to leo-editor dir and doing "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot". The packages appear in parent dir. No bump up the version number, edit debian/changelog (syntax is important, it's machine-parsed).

@edit file type

[4]

File:Open creates an @edit node containing the entire file. From then on, opening the .leo file containing the @edit node will automatically read the file.

Incremental search

[5]

Also, the latest Leo trunk now contains a fully functional incremental search. By default, Alt-S starts the incremental search, Alt-R starts a backward incremental search. To repeat the search, do Alt-S or Alt- R again. isearch now works with both tk and qt gui plugins.

Active path

[6]

In response to dclark's recent query about syncing leo and directory hierarchies, and the recent fixing of the @path infrastructure, I've done some more work on my "active_path" plugin.

An overview of what it does (i.e. the plugin menu about output) is here: about ActivePath

clone-find-all

[7]

<alt-x> clone-find-all prompts for a term, enter the term and <enter>

If the term exists in the Leo file, a new node 'Found' is created, with children consisting of clones of the nodes containing the search term.

iLeo

[8]

integration of iPython with Leo

You should see in the log pane upon startup:

@command: start-ipython = <Alt+Shift+I>
@command: push-to-ipython = <Alt+I>
@command: dt
