Org is a mode for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, and doing project planning with a fast and effective plain-text system. It is also an authoring and publishing system, and it supports working with source code for literal programming and reproducible research.
This document is a much compressed derivative of the comprehensive Org-mode manual. It contains all basic features and commands, along with important hints for customization. It is intended for beginners who would shy back from a 200 page manual because of sheer size.
