Org Mode

Org Mode is a markup language and a part of the {Emacs} ecosystem often used for literate programming by Emacs users and sparsely used for notebook-like scientific computing.

I bought into the dreams of "doing everything in Org-mode" for awhile, but, while nice and convenient, the system ultimately is not intended to be some expressive database for all of these different types of data cached in plain text. It's a decent document format that's annoying and difficult to parse, but I have a ton of legacy work in Org so I'm going to stick with the format in part throughout my notes.

[This post] and [the emacs docs] are incredibly helpful for documentation.

Basic Formatting

The structure of an org-mode file is intuitive.

: * Heading 1
: ** Heading 2
: *** Heading 3
: *** And so forth...

It supports several flavors of text:

,*bold*, /italic/, _underlined_, +strikethrough+, =monospace=.

Links are rendered [[][with description]]
or without:

Lists can be
- ordered
  - have sub-headings
    1. support enumeration
    2. as needed
- have definitions :: true.
+ works as well
- [ ] can be unfinished
- [X] or complete

: or rendered as preformatted text.
def logical():
    return f'Org mode can also'
           f'render code from many languages!'
echo "it supports any language that is supported by Emacs"
return "and can even display the result of evaluated code!"

| It Contains | Great Tables |


| 42 | With |

| Native | Support! |

It has a single standard, and isn't a 'flavor' of markdown or rst!

There is probably some viable research workflow here - I just haven't found it.

The best part about org mode isn't its simplicity and flexibility -- its that it has become an integral component of the Emacs ecosystem.

The format has support for calendars, TODO lists, and READMEs, so it's flexible enough to express a variety of ideas that are conducive to a primarily text-based user interface.
