This page lists external tools useful for handling Org files.
Abstract: CL-ORG-MODE is a parser for org-mode files that uses an extensible CLOS-based recursive descent parser to create a tree of org-mode nodes. Also included is a (primitive) system for literate programming using org-mode
The Orgnode module contains one class, called Orgnode and a routine to read an org-mode file and create a list of Orgnode objects. The module is for reading an org-mode file. There are no methods for writing org-mode since since I have no need for this functionality. You are welcome to extend the functionality of the __repr__ method of the Orgnode class if you would like this functionality.
This python module allows for the creation and parsing of org-files. The org-files are loaded into python objects allowing the modification of the different recognized elements. The objects are defined in a plug-in way, allowing the user of this module to add easily a new kind of data and the relative functions. Current objects are : - Schedule elements - Drawers - Tables - Nodes The project is contained in an unique tangle org-file which contains the documentation, the python files and the test suite.
Another Python tool for parsing org mode files Current features ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - Org file parser - Agenda builder - Todo-list builder - Custom todo keywords - Command line interface for agenda and todo-lists
There are several other Org-related modules on CPAN at various development stages, all utilizing Org::Parser: App::OrgUtils (some utilities for Org documents), Org::To::* (convert Org mode to various other formats).
This gem contains Ruby routines for parsing org-mode files. The most significant thing this library does today is convert org-mode files to HTML or textile.

I wrote a Python [[https://bitbucket.org/fgeller/gcal2org/src/8fa7d2b83ab3/gcal2org.py][script]] that uses the GData API to download events for your Google Calendar and prints them to a given org-file. It is a very tiny script, but perhaps it is of use to other people as well. Small disclaimer: I've tested this on Mac OS X only, using Python 2.7.2.
The script can be found here: gcal2org.py
In this email, Attila shared a script to move notes from Tomboy to Org-mode -- see his message:
I'm moving my note-taking from GNote (C++ rewrite of Tomboy Notes) to org-mode. As I have a lot of notes all over the place, I wrote a script to convert from the XML format used by the Tomboy-style tools to org-mode.
You can find the script here: https://github.com/StAlphonsos/scriptologie
Script for converting files into and out of Org-mode, and for performing various analyses and conversions. The primary use case for this utility is to convert between Org-mode outline text and AbstractSpoon's ToDoList.
See for explanations on how to use this script.
Remind is a command line calendar application for Unix/Linux that can, among other things, spit out formatted plain text calendars and agendas.
To convert org-mode appointments to remind data, simply call the script on one or more org files: perl org2remind.pl ~/org/*.org (Optionally, add the script to your path and make it executable.) The results of this script can saved in a file... perl org2remind.pl ~/org/*.org >> org.rem ...or piped directly into a remind command... perl org2remind.pl ~/org/*.org | remind - For a nice calendar of the current month, use the following: perl org2remind.pl ~/org/*.org | remind -c - This script is similar to org2rem.el (in the contrib directory of the org-mode repository), except that, instead of saving files from within org-mode, it allows for easier and faster access to org/remind data from the command line. Currently, the script supports appointments (i.e., active timestamps) and the org-diary-class sexp.
