;;; org-ctags.el - Integrate Emacs "tags" facility with org mode.
;;

;;
;; Synopsis
;; ========
;;
;; Allows org-mode to make use of the Emacs `etags' system.  Defines tag
;; destinations in org-mode files as any text between <<double angled
;; brackets>>. This allows the tags-generation program `exuberant ctags' to
;; parse these files and create tag tables that record where these
;; destinations are found.  Plain [[links]] in org mode files which do not have
;; <<matching destinations>> within the same file will then be interpreted as
;; links to these 'tagged' destinations, allowing seamless navigation between
;; multiple org-mode files.  Topics can be created in any org mode file and
;; will always be found by plain links from other files.  Other file types
;; recognized by ctags (source code files, latex files, etc) will also be
;; available as destinations for plain links, and similarly, org-mode links
;; will be available as tags from source files.  Finally, the function
;; `org-ctags-find-tag-interactive' lets you choose any known tag, using
;; autocompletion, and quickly jump to it.
;;
;; Installation
;; ============
;;
;; Install org mode
;; Ensure org-ctags.el is somewhere in your emacs load path.
;; Download and install Exuberant ctags -- "http://ctags.sourceforge.net/"
;; Edit your .emacs file (see next section) and load emacs.

;; To put in your init file (.emacs):
;; ==================================
;;
;; Assuming you already have org mode installed and set up:
;;
;;    (setq org-ctags-path-to-ctags "/path/to/ctags/executable")
;;    (add-hook 'org-mode-hook
;;      (lambda ()
;;        (define-key org-mode-map "\C-co" 'org-ctags-find-tag-interactive)))
;;
;; By default, with org-ctags loaded, org will first try and visit the tag
;; with the same name as the link; then, if unsuccessful, ask the user if
;; he/she wants to rebuild the 'TAGS' database and try again; then ask if
;; the user wishes to append 'tag' as a new toplevel heading at the end of
;; the buffer; and finally, defer to org's default behaviour which is to
;; search the entire text of the current buffer for 'tag'.
;;
;; This behaviour can be modified by changing the value of
;; ORG-CTAGS-OPEN-LINK-FUNCTIONS. For example I have the following in my
;; .emacs, which describes the same behaviour as the above paragraph with
;; one difference:
;;
;; (setq org-ctags-open-link-functions
;;       '(org-ctags-find-tag
;;         org-ctags-ask-rebuild-tags-file-then-find-tag
;;         org-ctags-ask-append-topic
;;         org-ctags-fail-silently))  ; <-- prevents org default behaviour
;;
;;
;; Usage
;; =====
;;
;; When you click on a link "[[foo]]" and org cannot find a matching "<<foo>>"
;; in the current buffer, the tags facility will take over.  The file TAGS in
;; the active directory is examined to see if the tags facility knows about
;; "<<foo>>" in any other files.  If it does, the matching file will be opened
;; and the cursor will jump to the position of "<<foo>>" in that file.
;;
;; User-visible functions:
;; - `org-ctags-find-tag-interactive': type a tag (plain link) name and visit
;;   it.  With autocompletion.  Bound to ctrl-O in the above setup.
;; - All the etags functions should work.  These include:
;;
;;      M-.    `find-tag' -- finds the tag at point
;;
;;      C-M-.  find-tag based on regular expression
;;
;;      M-x tags-search RET -- like C-M-. but searches through ENTIRE TEXT
;;             of ALL the files referenced in the TAGS file.  A quick way to
;;             search through an entire 'project'.
;;
;;      M-*    "go back" from a tag jump.  Like `org-mark-ring-goto'.
;;             You may need to bind this key yourself with (eg)
;;             (global-set-key (kbd "<M-kp-multiply>") 'pop-tag-mark)
;;
;;      (see etags chapter in Emacs manual for more)
;;
;;
;; Keeping the TAGS file up to date
;; ================================
;;
;; Tags mode has no way of knowing that you have created new tags by typing in
;; your org-mode buffer.  New tags make it into the TAGS file in 3 ways:
;;
;; 1. You re-run (org-ctags-create-tags "directory") to rebuild the file.
;; 2. You put the function `org-ctags-ask-rebuild-tags-file-then-find-tag' in
;;    your `org-open-link-functions' list, as is done in the setup
;;    above.  This will cause the TAGS file to be rebuilt whenever a link
;;    cannot be found.  This may be slow with large file collections however.
;; 3. You run the following from the command line (all 1 line):
;;
;;      ctags --langdef=orgmode --langmap=orgmode:.org
;;        --regex-orgmode="/<<([^>]+)>>/\1/d,definition/"
;;          -f /your/path/TAGS -e -R /your/path/*.org
;;
;; If you are paranoid, you might want to run (org-ctags-create-tags
;; "/path/to/org/files") at startup, by including the following toplevel form
;; in .emacs.  However this can cause a pause of several seconds if ctags has
;; to scan lots of files.
;;
;;     (progn
;;       (message "-- rebuilding tags tables...")
;;       (mapc 'org-create-tags tags-table-list))
