The first argument of `org-export-define-derived-backend' should be the
name of the new back-end, as a symbol, not the function used to publish.
E.g,

  (org-export-define-derived-backend 'slimhtml-improved 'slimhtml
   )

You need to define your own publishing function with the help of
`org-publish-org-to' and make it use `slimhtml-improved. Here you're
re-using plain slimhtml, without your additions. E.g.,

  (defun ox-slimhtml-improved-publish-to-html (plist filename pub-dir)
"Publish an org file to html.
  PLIST is the property list for the given project.  FILENAME
  is the filename of the Org file to be published.  PUB-DIR is
  the publishing directory.
  Return output file name."
(let ((html-extension (or (plist-get plist :html-extension) 
org-html-extension)))
  (org-publish-org-to 'slimhtml-improved
  filename
  (if (and html-extension (not (string= "" 
html-extension)))
  (concat "." html-extension) "")
  plist
  pub-dir)))

Then you can set :publishing-function to `org-slimhtml-publish-to-html'.

You should be able to extend it.

You didn't receive much feedback - sorry for that.

Did you make progress about your project?



How to reinject custom function into derived backend which doesn't implement it, ex : footnote in ox-slimhtml backend.

2020-10-02 Thread rey-coyrehourcq

Hi,

I'm trying to develop my own `publish.el` for some research project linked to 
reproductibility. 
I chose ox-slimhtml [0] as derived backend to limit and simplify the html/css 
outputs generated by vanilla html
backend/publish. 

Actually footnotes are not defined in ox-slimhtml, so as i read in the org 
documentation [1] ), 
i try to add this capacity by simply calling vanilla ox-html function 
org-html-footnote-reference into translate-alist :

(org-export-define-derived-backend 'ox-slimhtml-publish-to-html 'slimhtml
  :translate-alist '((bold . ox-slimhtml-bold)
 
(footnote-reference . org-html-footnote-reference)
 (verse-block . org-html-
verse-block)
 (special-block . org-html-special-block)))

Using the vanilla ox-html export function, everything is awesome and footnote 
appear in my html, normal.
 
:publishing-function org-blog-publish-to-html 

But if i switch to ":publishing-function ox-slimhtml-publish-to-html" the 
function 
org-html-footnote-reference is never called.

There is something i don't understand in the processing of "translate-alist", 
so perhaps if the derived backend doesn't
implement a footnote-reference function, i cannot extend it ?

If you have some higlight on this, or solution on this problem, i'm interested.
