Introduction to Org-Mode and Worg

Org-mode is a powerful system for organizing your complex life with simple plain-text files. It seamlessly integrates all your notes, mindmaps, TODO lists, calendar, day planner, and project schedules into a single system that can be easily searched (e.g. by grep), encrypted (e.g. by GnuPG), backed up and synced (e.g. by Dropbox), imported/exported, and accessed on the go (e.g. on an iPhone or Android smartphone). It can even be used for authoring web pages and documents.

have to say about Org-mode, and read a few user stories!

Org-mode is distributed as part of the popular Emacs text editor and runs wherever Emacs runs, including on GNU-Linux, Windows, and Mac. Written by Carsten Dominik, it is currently maintained by Bastien Guerry and used by many helpful people who, like you, are desperate to get and stay organized. The way Org-mode maintenance is done is described here.

The page you're reading is part of Worg, a section of the Org-mode web site that is written by a volunteer community of Org-mode fans. It includes tutorials, ideas, code snippets, etc., shared to make your introduction and customization of Org-mode as easy as possible. Worg is maintained by Matthew Lundin, a group of Worg contributors, and maybe you.
