Once you've got your agenda organized right with todo's in order etc. then it's just a little disruptive to go anywhere else for a little extra
detail to
get some more context. But I agree agenda should be as compact as
possible.. may be the extra lines could be a toggle switch?


I am not yet convinced, but I have made a little toy implementation
for you and others to try out and commet on.

Please get the latest version and press `E' in the agenda to
toggle the display of a small amount (see variable
`org-agenda-entry-text-maxlines') of text from the entry in
the agenda.

Thanks! I like it very much so far. Refreshing the agenda removes the snippets/excerpts though. Will use it for a few days and report back.

Me too!  I just tried it for the first time this morning and I think
this is going to be very useful.

Lots of my tasks have website links which are exposed by this. It would
be even more useful if I can click on the links to go there as in the
regular org file.

I am using an overlay after-string property to display the text.
I don't want to move a way from the one-real-line-is-one-entry
paradigm, so this is as far as I'd like to go, and I do not
wnat to really "insert" this text.

We could make C-c C-o follow links also in the extra text,
and offer a link selection if there are several links, maybe.

Even without that this hack looks like a keeper to me :)
