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 contribute!

Blogging tools

o-blog
Standalone 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]]).
Jekyll
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]].
Projects
In most cases using Org-mode publishing projects with
its many options should be sufficient for publishing a blog.
Blorgit
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.
blog-files
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.
org2blog
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 (instructions [[http://blog.paphus.com/blog/2012/08/01/introducing-octopress-blogging-for-org-mode/][here]].)
Blorg
the original Org-mode blogging engine (but it's not maintained
anymore). Roland Kaufmann is maintaining a fork [[https://github.com/RolKau/blorg][here]].

Wiki tools

  • 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 general use.

Other tools

  • org-ruby 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]].
