My current mail setup is mu4e and emacs based mail client included with the amazing mu mail indexer. mu works similar to notmuch but allows easy bidirectional operation with the original Maildir. Add mbsync (isync) to sync imap locally and msmtp and you have a full mail setup.

The idea is to create a fancy version of this setup using a browser based application. The architecture is similar to mu4e. Instead of mu4e talking to mu-server, a small backend written in go talks to mu-server. The backend serves a javascript application and provides an HTTP API to it. The app is written in Vue.js.

The current prototype can already display the subjects of the mail as you type in the textfield. It uses plain rest for now. A Websocket would allow for progress report (but it is so fast that has not been necessary until now). The backend implements the mu-server s-exp protocol and for now exposes the cmd:find operation.

Looking for mad skills in:

golang vuejs

      @dmacvicar, is the prototype source hosted somewhere? If yes, is there a Getting Started in the README? I'd like to give it a try. :)
