• Org Mode

Filed under:

Org mode is a deep cosmic black-hole of plain-text-power. The Firnº static site generator is based on converting org-mode (to the best of its ability) into web pages (as seen on this page, if you are reading it in your browser).

This wikiº is built with org mode, and I also use org-mode for most task management.

I use org-mode to configure emacsº with a literate config.

General Tips

  • You can manually break a long line by using M-q (which calls org-fill-paragraph).

  • C-u C-c C-o Open the current link in dired (good for photos)

  • When using org sparse tree (to: "construct sparse trees for selected information in an outline tree"); you can cycle which date types you are filtering trees by when sorting by date.

    • I use this for filtering a list of Booksº I've read in a given time based on properties, or when I've tried certain kinds of Coffeeº

  • Convert column-view into actual text using a column block; this is how I capture the :properties: of my Booksº file.
