There is a strong desire to use Org-mode to manage both blogs and
wikis. There are a number of tools which address parts of this need, this
page will serve as a collecting of the names of these tools with links and
brief descriptions. I'm sure I've forgotten many relevant tools so please
- Stand-alone blogging system that does not require any external
software ([[http://renard.github.com/o-blog/features.html][features]], [[https://github.com/renard/o-blog][Github source]]).
- a simple, blog aware, static site generator. There are
instructions for combining Org-mode with jekyll at [[file:org-tutorials/org-jekyll.org][Org-Jekyll]].
- In most cases using Org-mode publishing projects with
its many options should be sufficient for publishing a blog.
- publish an interactive website based on Org-mode
documents. While blorgit has many nice features including the
fact that Org-mode documents can be edited through the web
interface with automatic commits to a git or svn repository
however it is fairly complicated to set up. Blorgit is one or
two small changes from being a full-fledged Org-mode based
wiki. This is no longer maintained, see org-ehtml in
the wiki section below.
- A simple system based on ideas and code from org-jekyll and
reprise.py to publish a blog using simple static html
pages. Used for publishing [[http://punchagan.muse-amuse.in/][this blog]] py Puneeth Chaganti.
- allows publishing directly from Org-mode to WordPress
- Org-mode and Octopress
- Instructions for blogging With Org-mode and
Octopress. There is also this [[https://github.com/craftkiller/orgmode-octopress][dedicated exporter]] by Tom Alexander
- the original Org-mode blogging engine (but it's not maintained
anymore). Roland Kaufmann is maintaining a fork [[https://github.com/RolKau/blorg][here]].
- a blog-like sitemap for org-publish
- see this post by Jon Anders
- Org-mode and Nikola
- A plugin for Nikola (a static site generator
in Python), that lets you write your posts in org-mode syntax.
- A static blog-site generator, written in elisp. Very
light weight. Integrated with git. Supports
themeing. Uses [[http://mustache.github.io/][mustache]] for templating. Highly
customizable. Key difference from o-blog is that
org-page posts are in *separate* org-files. Built-in
support for disqus, google-analytics and RSS.
- a static blog-site generator written in Python (HTML5,
CSS3). Focus is to have only an absolutely /minimum/ of
things to do to write a new blog entry /everywhere/ in
your set of Org-mode files. The software is [[https://github.com/novoid/lazyblorg/blob/master/dev/lazyblorg.org][currently
in development]]. However, basic functionality is
working: persistent pages, temporal pages, tagging,
Atom feeds, basic Org-mode syntax, hidden entries, and
such. You can take a look at [[http://karl-voit.at/][Karl Voit]]'s personal web
page to see an example result. Great features are
planned for the future: auto-tags for language or
article length, tag description pages, overview pages
for navigation, extremely easy integration of image
files through [[https://github.com/novoid/Memacs/blob/master/docs/memacs_filenametimestamps.org][a memacs module]], and so forth.
- ikiwiki is a web site compiler written in Perl. In many ways it is
similar to Jekyll, but has closer integration with version control
systems. It supports blogging and has many plugins.
There is an org mode plugin by Manoj, which lets you write your posts in
org and converts them to html suitable for processing by ikiwiki.
There is another plugin by Chris Gray that interprets org files. It
is still under intermittent development, but is stable enough for
- Org-ehtml defines an editable HTML backend for the new exporting
engine. Org-ehtml runs on an [[https://github.com/eschulte/emacs-web-server][Emacs web server]]. Exported Org-mode
web pages may be edited through a web browser, the edits may then be
saved to Org-mode files on the computer running the server, and may
even be committed to a version control system (experimental)
providing wiki functionality. There is also experimental support
for password authentication. Also see the [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/58773][initial announcement
email on the Org-mode mailing list]].
- is a Ruby gem for converting org-mode files to HTML. The goal is
to make it easier to use org-mode files in website tools like [[http://webby.rubyforge.org/][Webby]],
[[http://jekyllrb.com/][Jekyll]], or [[http://webgen.rubyforge.org/][webgen]].
