PyOrgMode

PyOrgMode is a small python library able to do simple tasks with your org files. It allows you to generate org files or treat them in an automated fashion.

This project is not my top priority, but I’m more than happy to receive pull requests. Don’t worry, even if it takes some time, I go through all of them ;)

I’d like to thank all the people that contributes (see AUTHORS file).

Quick Start

Installation

Download the git repo and then install the package.

git clone https://github.com/bjonnh/PyOrgMode.git
cd PyOrgMode/
sudo python setup.py install

Import an Org-Mode file

Import PyOrgMode

from PyOrgMode import PyOrgMode

Create an Org data structure to hold the org-mode file.

base = PyOrgMode.OrgDataStructure()

Load the org-mode file.

base.load_from_file("test.org")

Create an org-mode file

Create an Org data structure to hold the org-mode file.

base = PyOrgMode.OrgDataStructure()

Create a new TODO item

new_todo = PyOrgMode.OrgNode.Element()
new_todo.heading = "I am a new todo item"
new_todo.tags=["things", "important"]
new_todo.level = 1
new_todo.todo = "TODO"

Add a scheduled item and a deadline to the item.

_sched = PyOrgMode.OrgSchedule()
_sched._append(new_todo, _sched.Element(scheduled="<2015-08-01 Sat 12:00-13:00>"))
_sched._append(new_todo, _sched.Element(deadline="<2015-08-01 Sat 12:00-13:00>"))

Create a logbook drawer

_props = PyOrgMode.OrgDrawer.Element("LOGBOOK")
# Add a properties drawer
_props.append(PyOrgMode.OrgDrawer.Element("- State \"SOMEDAY\"    from \"TODO\"     [2015-07-01 Wed 09:45]"))
# Append the properties to the new todo item
new_todo.append_clean(_props)

Create a properties drawer

_props = PyOrgMode.OrgDrawer.Element("PROPERTIES")
# Add a properties drawer
_props.append(PyOrgMode.OrgDrawer.Property("FRUITS", "pineapples"))
_props.append(PyOrgMode.OrgDrawer.Property("NAMES", "bob, sally"))
# Append the properties to the new todo item
new_todo.append_clean(_props)

Append the todo item to the base object

base.root.append_clean(new_todo)
