The navigel package is a library that makes it simpler for Emacs Lisp
developers to define user-interfaces based on tablists (also known as
tabulated-lists). Overriding a few (CL) methods and calling
`navigel-open' is all that's required to get a nice UI to navigate
your domain objects (files, music library, database, etc.).
Navigel displays "entities" in a tablist. An "entity" is whatever you
want that has a name. If an entity defines some "children", then
RET on the entity will list its children in another
Some features of navigel include:
RET on an entity lists the entity's children in another
^ opens the parent of the current entity;
m marks the entity at point;
d deletes the marked entities.
Navigel automatically adds support for bookmarks and imenu.
This package depends on tablist to get support for marking, deletion
and more. On top of the tablist package, navigel provides an easy way
to specify the content of your tabulated lists: through entities
specified with method overrides. This makes it a breath to have
tablist-based navigation within domain objects.
This code is a library and is meant for Emacs Lisp developers. The
source code is well documented and organized in sections. Please have
a look at it.
Please have a look at the file for an
example on how to use the library. This file guides the reader through
an implementation of a tablist-based directory navigator with support
for marking and deleting:
