Converting Neorg Files to other Filetypes with core.export

Exports Neorg documents into any other supported filetype.


All export functionality is provided by the :Neorg export command.

To export the currently opened buffer to another file format, you should use the :Neorg export to-file command. The command takes the following arguments:

  • path - the path to export to. Examples are:, ~/ If the second argument is not provided Neorg will try to infer the filetype to convert to through the file extension.
  • filetype (optional) - the filetype to export to. Useful if you want to use a non-standard extension, or if the filetype you're using cannot be inferred automatically. Note that this filetype must be a filetype that Neovim itself provides and/or understands, i.e. md or markd is not a valid filetype, however markdown is.

Neorg also supports exporting a directory of files: this is where the :Neorg export directory command comes into play. It takes 3 arguments:

  • directory - the directory to export
  • filetype - the filetype to export to
  • output-dir (optional) - a custom output directory to use. If not provided will fall back to config.public.export_dir (see configuration).


The directory to export to when running `:Neorg export directory`. The string can be formatted with the special keys: `` and ``.

Default value: "<export-dir>/<language>-export"


This module defines no keybinds.
