I understand that the issue is quite moot now (and I'm sorry for my silly 
proposal), but I just found out about "CommonMark" and I thought that if org 
syntax *had* to borrow from a markdown-esque name, then CommonOrg would 
perfectly fit the endeavor.

Re: "Orgdown", the new name for the syntax of Org-mode

2021-11-28 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
Considering the total incompatibility between markdown and org-mode it does not 
seem to me that ’orgdown’ is a useful name. It will only confuse people and 
generate useless comments and counter-comments wherever org-mode syntax is 
mentioned.

Org-mode and its syntax bring users functions that are vastly superior to 
whatever markdown does, and we should not forget that markdown’s originator (at 
least the one who is still alive today) pretty much systematically despises 
free software and the free software movement on his blog…

Regular expressions that describe most (?) org syntax ?

2021-10-29 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I am looking for a set of regular expressions that roughly describe most of the 
important org syntax.

A bit like

@code\{[^\}]*\}|@command\{[^\}]*\} ...

describes part of the texi code found in the Emacs manuals.

I could figure something out, but I thought maybe there is already something 
around…

face for org-capture template

2021-10-03 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I just found how to change the face based on the major mode thanks to 
buffer-face-mode and I'd like to know if there is a similar mechanism to apply 
a given face to the template buffer.

What I have is:

;; polices fixes pour modes
;; https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/FacesPerBuffer#toc3
(defun my-buffer-face-mode-fixed ()
  "Sets a fixed width (monospace) font in current buffer"
  (interactive)
  (setq buffer-face-mode-face '(:family "PT Mono" :height 115))
  (buffer-face-mode))

(add-hook 'org-capture-mode-hook ’my-buffer-face-mode-fixed)

But that applies the fixed font to the capture target and not to the template 
buffer...

I'm sure the answer is somewhere right under my nose...

Morgan,

Thank you for the pointer.

Actually, Noah and Drew suggested that on sr.ht, but I really have *no* idea 
what an API is, how I work with it, what is the graphql thing and all.

It looks like a super-powerful thing that smart people use, but it will 
probably take me quite some time before I can actually know where to start with 
all that info (I did check graphql tutorials but I was like: "ok, and where do 
I type all that?")...

Besides, org's md export works like a charm.

HTML does not require the addition of a number to indicate the heading level. 
The exported number is very much unexpected. Numbers (or ordering indicators) 
are expected in an  context, but nowhere else.

Elegant way to export org to Markdown ?

2021-10-01 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I'm trying to work with SourceHut (sr.ht) and right now they only accept 
Markdown syntax for their readme/wiki files.

Since I work in Emacs/org-mode to write my documents (and try to stick to 
that), I'd like to know if there is an elegant way to export org syntax to 
MarkDown.

I was thinking that the export-dispatch had an option for Plain Text / 
Markdown, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

As a workaround, I thought I'd work on a README.org file that I export to HTML, 
change the name to .md and edit the contents to reduce the markup to the strict 
minimum... But when I saw the contents of the HTML, I thought that would be way 
too much work.

*BUT* MarkDown bien basically HTML *without* the head/body tags, it seems to me 
that the HTML export-dispatch thing could have a "super simplified MD 
compatible" HTML option...

Either way, I need a method to export to something that sr.ht will recognize 
and process as MD so:

1) is there an external "approved" process to convert org-mode syntaxt to an 
MD-compatible format ?
2) if no, what is the not too hard way to hack the HTML output to produce what 
I need with export-dispatch ?

---side note--
And, Hello to Emacs-Humanities! I was away from the emacs-lists for a year and 
when I came back I found that this amazing list was born. Last year I started a 
"go-back-to-school" process that will eventually conclude with me finishing an 
MA in Japanese studies, and I wrote my first 57 pages research report last year 
with org-mode/Zotero/NeoOffice (a macOS only LibreOffice), and that was fun. 
This year I work remotely as a part-time lecturer in translation studies where 
I'll teach how to use free software in translation (OmegaT/Opaki

org.texi and po4a

2021-07-18 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
It looks like po4a can't convert org.texi to the PO format.

$ po4a-gettextize -f texinfo -M utf8 -m org.texi -p org.texi.fr.po

→ Complex regular subexpression recursion limit (32766) exceeded at 
/opt/local/lib/perl5/5.26/Locale/Po4a/TeX.pm line 697.

I don't suppose that there are issues with the texi itself, it looks like the 
texi conversion in po4a is a bit weak, but it would be awesome if somebody 
could check if there is something that could be simplified (org.texi is the 
*only* manual in the whole emacs distribution that faults at the conversion).

If I may insist, my original question was about a "good enough" *or* easily 
understandable setting for org export to PDF.

I *never* suggested that I, or someone, expected org to support the *whole 
Unicode range* at any moment.

Since org uses Latex to achieve export to PDF, which is quite a common demand 
nowadays, something that normal org users can understand should be posted 
somewhere (*should*, with the meaning that I'd love to do that if I understood 
even half the discussion here, but it is sadly not the case.)

The issue I'm pointing at is that we don't need "satisfactorily", we need "good 
enough".

There are a number of fonts that have 30k+ glyphs. That's good enough for a lot 
of org-mode users.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_font

What we need is 1 or 2 well-documented settings where we specify:

1) the back end
2) the font

It can be org proprieties, or extra elisp code, it doesn't matter. But we need 
to have good enough PDF export out of the box. We're in the 21st century. 
People expect (I know, free software, etc. but I'm not talking about that) 
proper font support for PDF, and well-documented workaround solutions.

I don't mind going through the org→ODF→PDF route, but it's a waste of time. 
Still, it works *well enough* so it's actually the only viable option.

cite:[^@][A-Za-z0-9_-]+|\[\[cite:[^@][A-Za-z0-9_-]+\]\]

There are no reasons to limit the string after : to ascii.

in isearch I tried:

\[\{2\}cite.*\]\{2\}\|[^\[]cite:[^ \

And it seems to do the job.

Thank you very much Juan.

I understand that Latex has excellent support for multilingual files. I use it 
sometimes for very complex multilingual texts (ancient Japanese and French for 
ex).

But with UTF-8 being ubiquitous on computers nowadays, I really can't be 
bothered to have to type all those sequences to have org-mode properly export 
to PDF something that it exports perfectly well to ODT without requiring 
anything extra.

Which is the reason why I was wondering about a "generic" default setting where 
the conversion engine behind org could just use a default multilingual package 
and a default "wide enough" generic font. I really mean a "good enough" export 
where all the characters are visible, nothing fancy.

Juan,

That's a very interesting proposal. Thank you for the reference.

I had given up on Latex because mixing languages sounded like a huge pain in 
the butt but I see that without some org-level infrastructure it is not 
possible to achieve much when exporting to Latex/PDF (unless I missed 
something).

So I guess I'll just keep my current workflow for now, with ODT as my "pivot" 
format.

Thank you again, Juan.

org-mode export to (latex) PDF

2021-07-10 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I was busy last year going back to school and I wrote a research paper for my 
first year of master almost entirely in org-mode.

My workflow was trivial:

- write in org-mode
- enter the bibliography with Zotero
- export to ODT and open in NeoOffice
- modify in NeoOffice
- deliver

At first, I tried to export the document to PDF but all the Japanese quotes I 
had were removed from the document, which led me to prefer ODT export because 
it handled them properly.

I guess it is an issue with the Latex backend and could have been solved with 
the proper Latex settings, but it seems weird that the default settings do not 
allow for out-of-the-box multilingual support.

Is there an easy way to have that as the default behavior?

I see 2 solutions here:

2) org is removed from the built in packages

At one point I was unable to archive subtrees because some function was

I uninstalled 9.2.6 and the issues was fixed.

Obviously you are not the typical user... :)

What should happen is that
1) packages.el should see that I'm trying to install a package that requires 
9.2.6 as a dependency and it should notify me that 9.1.9 is already installed 
and do I really want to do that, etc.

2) *or* just consider that it's better for me to use 9.2.6 instead of whatever 
comes with emacs and make sure that the older package is forgotten by emacs.

But honestly, I think 1) should be the default for any package.

org 9.2.6 and org 9.1.9

2019-11-24 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
org 9.1.9 is a built-in

but org 9.2.6 comes as a dependency to some packages and having both installed 
creates conflicts.

Why does that happen ?

Can't 9.2.6 override 9.1.9 ? It's not the first time I have issues with that 
situation and that's extremely confusing. What is the best way to solve that ?

Re: [O] Capture template issue ?

2019-09-19 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
The issue is systematic.

I have changed my settings to:

 org-hide-leading-stars nil
 org-startup-folded nil 

But that doesn't change anything.

I have quasi systematically the issue I described when the file that will be 
modified by the capture is not visible when I capture, and generally I don't 
have it when it is visible when I do.

Currently, the place where that happens most (?) is when I add captured text in 
a "file+datetree" structure right over a "file+headline" structure.

[O] Capture template issue ?

2019-09-16 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I have an issue with my capture templates where if I add an item at the end of 
list, the item seems to "eat" the following line break and merges with the item 
that follows:

* List 1
** item 1
** item 2
* List 2
** item 3
** item 4

displayed

* List 1 ...
* List 2 ...

I add item 5 to List 1, I should get:

* List 1
** item 1
** item 2
** item 5
* List 2 ...

But instead I get

* List 1
** item 1
** item 2
** item 5 * List 2 ...

which makes List 2 disappear for all practical purposes.

That's pretty systematic, and very annoying.

Nearly all my templates show a similar behavior.

This one was:

   (file+headline "~/org/journal.org" "Dictionnaire")
   "* %? :%^{tag}:\n")

I'm using the built-in 9.1.9 version, with an emacs from master built a few 
days ago, on macos.

And my org setup is this:

(setq org-use-speed-commands t
  org-directory "~/org"
  org-default-notes-file (concat org-directory "/notes.org")
  org-refile-targets '((org-agenda-files :maxlevel . 3))
  org-refile-use-outline-path 'file
  org-outline-path-complete-in-steps nil
  org-refile-allow-creating-parent-nodes 'confirm
  org-startup-indented t
  org-use-fast-todo-selection t
  org-return-follows-link t
  org-link-abbrev-alist '(("message" . "mailto"))
  org-todo-keywords
  '((sequence "TODO(t)" "|" "DONE(d)")
(sequence "WAIT(w)" "|" "IN-PROGRESS" "|" "CANCELED(c)"))
  org-agenda-files
  '("/Users/suzume/org/" "/Users/suzume/Library/Application 
Support/Notational Data/")
  org-indirect-buffer-display 'current-window
  org-modules
  '(org-bbdb org-bibtex org-docview org-habit org-info org-irc org-mhe 
org-protocol org-rmail)
  org-support-shift-select t
  org-todo-keyword-faces
      '(("IN-PROGRESS" . "orange") ("WAIT" . "magenta") ("CANCELED" . 
"darkgreen") ("TODO" . "pink") ("DONE" . "green")))


Where should I investigate to fix this ?

If you have a problem with that function and you use Scheme, you know that it 
is mapped to call-with-current-continuation and you know where to look for 
information. And if you're monolingual, chances are that you won't be able to 
make sense of what you find in English.

> The language of programming is English.

And of course, when 2 Turkish programmers talk about programming they shift to 
English... No, they don't. Keywords are arbitrary strings. Try APL and see how 
"English" applies.

Proprietary software has so many issues that most pro-grade software is not 
even localized.

If FOSS activists took as much time fixing manuals as they take for fixing code 
that would not be an issue. l10n is not as good as code *because* it is not 
defined with a higher priority and a better consciousness of the linguistic 
issues, and that is because monolingual activists think one language is 
sufficient (funny how that does not apply to programming languages, but they 
don't seem to be conscious of that contradiction...)

That was not physically possible at the time. It is now. And as I wrote, Scheme

There are no practical reasons why that should not be possible. The current 
state of affairs is only due to design constraints when the languages were 
conceived.

In Scheme, for ex. you can actually redefine all the language keywords very 
easily without any impact on the interpreter.

Localization, when properly done is never a nightmare to maintain.

Genuine question: how many 3rd party tools do support the org format ?

What matters is that users find org easy to use in their language. But emacs 
(the main org user) is so far behind in that respect compared to the rest of 
the FLOSS ecosystem that even having one mode that implements some sort of l10n 
would be huge. Although, it would be nice to have that work nicely with already 
existing l10n processes.

[O] htmlize

2017-10-24 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I tried to export to html and org told me to first install htmlize ( 
https://github.com/hniksic/emacs-htmlize).

I tried to find an emacs-htmlize in the package list, and found nothing, so I 
went to the github page and since  saw it was a seemingly normal el package 
called htmlize I checked again in the packages, found it and installed it 
directly from emacs.

Why doesn't org suggest to use package.el to install htmlize? That would be 
less confusing to users who don't have it installed by default.

I'm already using the file+datetree target so I guess that's not possible,

That's certainly something to add to the documentation:

%\1 ... %\N Insert the text entered at the Nth %^{prompt}, where N is a 
number, starting from 1.

Are there cases where %\1 ... %\N would be used *outside* of a string in a 
template?

[O] capture templates and ^{prompt}

2017-06-30 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I'm looking for a way to use the string acquired by prompt in a second location 
in the template, like:

* TODO %^{prompt} [/] :sometag:\n** TODO (value of ^{prompt} comes here) 
:someothertag:\n

What's the best way to get that "value of ^{prompt}" ?

The alternative to M-S-RET is C-c C-x M = C-c C-x S-m

Why set an alternative like this when ESC RET S- does exactly the 
same thing and is way shorter/more practical ?

> See also `org-replace-disputed-keys'.

After looking at the "big" manual, I found about speed keys which seem to be a 
much more pragmatic approach to sorting that gui/tty key issue in org-mode. But 
except for a small paragraph and a few items in the tty section I could not 
find any reference to them, and nothing at all in the compact manual.

So, I have a few suggestions to improve that part of the documentation:
1) add a list of preset keys in the manual
2) add a line about speed keys in the compact guide

That's something I could do if the idea is accepted.

Jean-Christophe 

ps: section C3 of the manual has this line about Sacha Chua: "Sacha Chua 
suggested copying some linking code from Planner, and helped make Org pupular 
through her blog." It should be "popular" not "pupular".

Thank you for the pointer. Although I don't think I ever used a teletypewriter 
in my life :) Maybe sometimes in the 21st century we'll have to think about a 
change in terminology...

I use the compact manual as a reference for my uses and I find it extremely 
useful for beginners. Would it be possible to insert a few line on that subject 
in there too? Something like "People who use org-mode in a tty terminal should 
refer to section 15.9 of the manual for alternative key bindings."

[O] keybindings again...

2017-06-29 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I'm using emacs built from master, emacs -nw, after moving .emacs.el and 
.emacs.d away, on OSX 10.12.


I'm trying to assign M-S-RET to org-insert-todo-heading because for some reason 
it is not assigned by default: every time I hit ESC S-RET I get ESC RET only.

So, I tried things from
http://ergoemacs.org/emacs/keystroke_rep.html

First, this works fine:
(global-set-key (kbd "M-b") 'org-insert-todo-heading)

But this doesn't:
(global-set-key (kbd "M-") 'org-insert-todo-heading)

What I get here is the old M-return = org-insert-heading.

What is the problem here ?

Ok, I just tried something else:

(setq  ns-function-modifier 'meta) and what I get is *very* similar to the 
issue I have with ESC:

FN-x correctly "calls" M-x
FN-left in a level 2 header in org mode triggers beginning-of-buffer and *not* 
org-promote-header.

So the problem is not limited to ESC, and maybe not limited to org-mode.

In this case, M-Left (ESC-left) triggers backward-word instead of the expected 
org-promote-subtree.

It does not seem to me that the OS is stealing anything.

Ooops, you're right. Indeed.

On my machine I *systematically* use ESC for META.

Now that I think about it, I just tried this:

(setq  ns-right-command-modifier 'meta)

And I get the expected behavior in GUI emacs. So it's really an issue about ESC 
that is not recognized in GUI mode for *some* bindings in org-mode.

That's correct.
Basically, what happens in that in GUI mode, the ESC key is not recognized as 
META in org-mode (only as far as I can tell).

This morning I have installed emacs from macport (emacs-app-devel) and I've 
also built it from the repository (./configure with-ns).

In the locally build version Esc-Left promotes a header. But Esc-Right does not 
demote it, it only moves to the next word.

Macport emacs shows the same behavior as brew emacs: in GUI, Esc is not 
recognized as Meta.

Weird.

It is the opposite that's happening. Terminal works fine. It is the GUI that 
does not accept the bindings. And as I wrote, it is not limited to my macOS 
(Emacs.app and Aquamacs show the same behavior) but to other people's GTK+ 
linux or Xubuntu. So it seems that's something that aught to be investigated 
and eventually fixed.

Except that I don't *have* most bindings in GUI. There is probably a rational 
reason what that is happening. I'm fine with helping with the investigation but 
I fear that's an area where I can't do much more than that.

[O] different key binding between GUI emacs and emacs -nw

2017-05-30 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
I've just filed a bug report on emacs and was advised to report it here too.

It's bug#27140.

Basically, when I start GUI emacs (macOS, but also Aquamacs, also reported in 
Xubuntu and GTK+/Linux), I don't get the default org-mode bindings. Only emacs 
-nw gets them.

Even if I start both with -Q, I get the exact same behavior: proper default key 
bindings for org-mode in emacs -nw, some bindings overridden in GUI emacs.

The discussion thread on help-gnu-emacs is here:

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2017-05/msg00306.html

Let me know if you need extra information.

[O] org compact guide texinfo bug ?

2016-04-08 Thread Jean-Christophe Helary
It's my fist message to the list so I hope I'm not missing anything.

In section 10.4 "Commands in the agenda buffer" the View/Go to Org file 
commands are described as:

@tsubheading{View/Go to Org file}
@item mouse-3
@itemx @key{SPC}
Display the original location of the item in another window.
With prefix arg, make sure that the entire entry is made visible in the
outline, not only the heading.
@c
@itemx @key{TAB}
Go to the original location of the item in another window.  Under Emacs
22, @kbd{mouse-1} will also work for this.
@c
@itemx @key{RET}
Go to the original location of the item and delete other windows.
@c

According to the Texinfo documentation:
https://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/texinfo/html_node/_0040itemx.html

It seems like:

@itemx @key{TAB}

and

@itemx @key{RET}

are not subsequent entries of @item mouse-3 but entries on their own.

They should be coded as @item.
