bengotow / main.js
Created Jul 10, 2019
Mailspring plugin to assign a class to each thread list row
View main.js
// keep in mind this is a plain JavaScript file - the app won't "transpile" it
// in any way (Mailspring used to run Babel when it read plugin source code,
// but it became difficult to package up Babel as part of the application).
// We can still use most ES2016 language features because we use the latest Chrome.
// When you add this file to your theme also be sure to add a `main` entry to the
// package.json file to tell it that it should load this as the entrypoint of your plugin:
// {
// "main": "./main",

A Linkify plugin for DraftJS that creates / syncs entities on the fly
View linkify-plugin.js
import React from 'react';
import { RichUtils, Modifier, EditorState, SelectionState } from 'draft-js';
function isURL(text) {
return text.startsWith('http://'); // insert your favorite library here
Function you can call from your toolbar or "link button" to manually linkify
the selected text with an "explicit" flag that prevents autolinking from
changing the URL if the user changes the link text.

Created Aug 30, 2017
SPDLog Sink for "Flush Within Xmsec"
View spdlog-extensions.cpp
The code below shows a custom SPDLog sink that uses a separate thread and a C++0x condition_variable
to ensure that a spdlog::sinks::rotating_file_sink_mt is flushed to disk within a second of a new
log message being emitted. When no messages are arriving, the helper thread has very low wake overhead
and sleeps for 30s.

std::condition_variable spdFlushCV;
int spdUnflushed = 0;
