org4idea: edit org-mode files from IntelliJ



This plugin provides basic editing support for org-mode files in IntelliJ.

At the moment, only support for syntax highlight of comments and outlines is provided.

org4idea is still in its inception / pre-alpha / here-be-dragons phase. Use at your own risk.

Pending basic features

Basic Editing

These feature only requires some Intellij customisation of the plugin, and basic lexing rules

  • [X] spellcheckying
  • [X] active live template
  • [X] keyword/blocs highlight
  • [X] Commenter
  • [X] Highligting of blocs, and keywords
  • [ ] bold, slant, code highlight

Structure aware features

The following feature will require some working grammar and a parser to be really supported.

  • [ ] proper file parsing
  • [ ] folding
  • [ ] tagging


  • create new org file
  • capture like actions
  • Link support
  • Export and html preview (relying on a background emacs)
  • the one you might suggest or implement
  • Line marker

Building from source

Open the module setting and select Intellij IDEA Plugin SDK as project SDK
Use Run Configuration to run the plugin and tests
Build > Prepare plugin for deployment to generate the release package.

Ensure that Plugin DevKit is activated (Settings | Plugins). You might also need the JFlex support if you are considering tweaking the lexing rules
