talon python library.
Planer does not do signatures, though there is a node port of that part of talon.
Use npm to install planer (add

npm install planer

You can use
window.document in a browser, or something akin to

jsdom in our test suite.
To extract the message from a plain text email:
planer = require('planer'); msgBody = "Reply!\n\nOn 15-Dec-2011, at 6:54 PM, Sean Carter <email@example.com> wrote:\n> It's the ROC!\n>-Sean"; actualMessage = planer.extractFrom(msgBody, 'text/plain'); console.log(actualMessage); # "Reply!"
To extract the message from an html email:
planer = require('planer'); msgBody = 'Reply!\n<div>\nOn 11-Apr-2011, at 6:54 PM, Bob <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:\n</div>\n<blockquote>\n<div>\nTest\n</div>\n</blockquote>'; actualMessage = planer.extractFrom(msgBody, 'text/html', window.document); console.log(actualMessage) # "<html><body>Reply!\n</body></html>";
Contributions are of course encouraged.
Keep in mind that the source is the
coffee files; the
js files in
/lib are kept around for convenience.
Write tests for any new functionality.
