HOWTO integrate the checkpatch script into Claws Mail (or Sylpheed)
If you intend to send or review patches with Claws Mail (or Sylpheed), scripts/checkpatch.pl is very useful for catching coding style violations.
Quoting from Documentation/SubmittingPatches, the patch sender "should be able to justify all violations that remain in the patch."
1. Create an action:
Configuration > Actions...
Menu name: checkpatch
Command: /usr/src/linux/scripts/checkpatch.pl %f (X) Shell command
Alternatively, just add
checkpatch: /usr/src/linux/scripts/checkpatch.pl %f
2. Optionally, add a toolbar button:
Configuration > Preferences...
Toolbars > Main Window
Item type: User Action
Event executed on click: checkpatch
Add some nice icon, then
Move it up/down to a convenient location on the toolbar, maybe add an additional separator.
Now you can check an inline patch in a selected message with a single mouse click.
When sending a patch, you can first put the message into the queue folder, check it there, then send the queued messages.
