@Malabarba
Yes
If it's still to large, then maybe, instead of doing it at compile time, we can ask the user the first time they use this feature
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
I'll poke at the idea more tonight and let you know how it goes.
Artur Malabarba
@Malabarba
And then cache it permanently
Ok
Did you check if there's an API endpoint for searching tag wikis?
There probably isn't, but you never know :)
Sean Allred
@vermiculus

ask the user first

That's probably wise. If it's several megabytes, that's not something we just want to assume.

API endpoint

Even if there is, I'm thinking a search method along the lines of RefTeX's citation searching

Hmm, I don't see a tag-search, but there is http://api.stackexchange.com/docs/wikis-by-tags /tags/{tags}/wikis
Artur Malabarba
@Malabarba
ok
then it sounds like it would be a good addition

@m00nlight
How to write answer for question in sx mode, and view other answers?
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@m00nlight Can't you just have the compose buffer side-by-side with the post buffer?
m00nlight
@m00nlight
@vermiculus Find out the problem. Just the split view hidden the answer command hint
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@m00nlight I can't make out what that means :(
m00nlight
@m00nlight
@vermiculus : Sorry for my poor expression since I am not a native English speaker, I just means the split of Emacs hidden the [a]answer hint for sx-mode,
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@m00nlight Sorry for the late reply – things have been pretty busy over here. I'm very sorry, but that didn't help much :(
Oh! You mean the keybinding hints! the [O]rder [c]omment [a]nswer stuff.
Yeah, if they're cut off by a small screen, they would be hard to see :)
A good friend there is C-h b or M-x describe-bindings.
@Malabarba Would you be sad if I renamed the 0.4 tag to v0.4 to match the others?
Artur Malabarba
@Malabarba
@vermiculus not at all. :-)
We should release 5.0 soon, since that markdwon fix is pretty major
Although I think it's not a problem until the new markdown-mode gets a stable release.

@L3v3L
just installed package, keep getting "could not create connection to api.stackexchange.com:433 ", any ideias?
Ivo Barros
@L3v3L
trying to figure out where that port number came from
Artur Malabarba
@Malabarba
I don't remember ever seeing that. =/
Is it possible your work network is blocking that address or something?
Ivo Barros
@L3v3L
sorry I made a typo, it's port 443
so I've been checking around, and what seems to be the problem is:
the connection that is trying to be established is http://api.stackexchange.com:443 and not https://api.stackexchange.com:443
https://api.stackexchange.com:443 works, tested in browser
so nothing to do with firewall
Ivo Barros
@L3v3L
This is my log

fixed: The emacs windows version does not come with gnuTLS

for anyone in the future that comes up with this problem, read this:

Artur Malabarba
@Malabarba
Thanks for figuring it out
It might be good if we create a github issue for this, so we don't lose the information when someone else needs it
Rudi Grinberg
@rgrinberg
Is there a way to comment on an answer in a proper buffer? Right now, when I click the "Add Comment" button I have to type my comment in the mini buffer which is a bit contricting
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@rgrinberg Not to my knowledge :( there may exist general solutions to redirect the minibuffer to a full buffer, though
Terry Finn
@terryfinn
Is it possible to us sx.el with a stack overflow team?
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
Possibly, but it would be read-only: https://api.stackexchange.com/docs/teams
Terry Finn
@terryfinn
Well read-only is better then no read at all. Thanks for the link.
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
A patch might actually be necessary here to send up the X-API-Access-Token header
I've been getting something of an itch to revive this project (it's laid dormant for a while as far as I'm concerned; I don't go on SX sites nearly as often as I used to), so maybe I can work in some support for that. I'm starting to feel a little stretched though between my other projects, so it may be a while
Peter Becich
@peterbecich
Know of any way to configure browse-url to open any www.stackoverflow.com link in this mode? For instance, I use helm-google a lot (https://melpa.org/#/helm-google), and those links open in EWW. Thank you
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@peterbecich Yes, you can customize browse-url-browser-function
Here's my value, for instance (I generally only interacted with emacs.SE and TeX.SX, so this was sufficient for me; you will need different entries but you get the idea):
((".*.stackexchange.com" . sx-open-link)
 ("." . browse-url-default-browser))
Peter Becich
@peterbecich
@vermiculus Perfect, thank you!
