Org Mode

Org Mode is a markup language and a part of the Emacs ecosystem. It’s a favorite of developers, writers, and researchers alike, and is often used for literate programming.

This wiki, along with all of my other notes, is drafted entirely in org-mode and rendered through a static site generator.

This post and the emacs docs are incredibly helpful for documentation.

Basic Formatting

The structure of an org-mode file is intuitive.

: * Heading 1
: ** Heading 2
: *** Heading 3
: *** And so forth...

It supports several flavors of text:

*bold*, /italic/, _underlined_, +strikethrough+, =monospace=.

Links are rendered [[https://jacob.chvatal.com][with description]]
or without: https://karl-voit.at/2017/09/23/orgmode-as-markup-only/

Lists can be
- ordered
  - have sub-headings
    1. support enumeration
    2. as needed
- have definitions :: true.
+ works as well
- [ ] can be unfinished
- [X] or complete

: or rendered as preformatted text.

echo "it supports any language that is supported by Emacs"
return "and can even display the result of evaluated code!"
print("Sometimes...")

It has a single standard, and isn’t a ‘flavor’ of markdown or rst!

Plugins

The best part about org mode isn’t its simplicity and flexibility – its that it has become an integral component of the Emacs ecosystem.

With this, the format has seen support for many tools – from calendar to todo lists and READMEs to DevOps, it’s flexible enough to be used anywhere – and thrives in the right ecosystem. https://github.com/mengwong/org-asana sync org mode and asana https://github.com/Kinneyzhang/gkroam lightweight roam replica for org https://github.com/jethrokuan/org-capture-bot bot to send things to org capture https://github.com/io12/org-fragtog view latex fragments after exiting them with cursor https://www.reddit.com/r/orgmode/comments/iqhmd9/i%5Flooked%5Fat%5Fmy%5Fnotes%5Ffrom%5Fa%5Fprevious%5Fclass%5Ffor/ latex integrated https://blog.polaris64.net/post/emacs-using-org-mode-to-track-exercises/ xercise tracking? https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&t=207&v=fgizHHd7nOo doing more with org
