An org-mode parser written in Ruby. The most significant thing this library does today is convert org-mode files to HTML or Textile. Currently, you cannot do much to customize the conversion. The supplied textile conversion is optimized for extracting “content” from the orgfile as opposed to “metadata.”
gem install org-ruby
From Ruby code:
require 'org-ruby' # Renders HTML Orgmode::Parser.new("* Hello world!").to_html # => "<h1>Hello world!</h1>\n" # Renders Textile Orgmode::Parser.new("* Hello world!").to_textile # => "h1. Hello world!\n" # Renders Markdown Orgmode::Parser.new("* Hello world!").to_markdown # => "# Hello world!\n"
It can also be used from the command line:
org-ruby sample.org --translate html
…will output a HTML version of sample.org.
org-ruby --translate textile sample.org
…will output a textile version of sample.org.
org-ruby --translate markdown sample.org
…will output a markdown version of sample.org.
