12 Exporting

Sometimes, you may want to pretty print your notes, publish them on the web or even share them with people not using Org. In these cases, the Org export facilities can be used to convert your documents to a variety of other formats, while retaining as much structure (see Document structure) and markup (see Markup) as possible.

Libraries responsible for such translation are called back-ends. Org ships with the following ones

More of them can be found in the contrib/ directory (see Installation) or through the Emacs packaging system1.

By default, the following five back-ends are loaded: ascii, html, icalendar, latex and odt. Others need to be specifically loaded, either by customizing org-export-backends, or by requiring the associated library, e.g.,

     (require 'ox-md)

Eventually, you can these facilities can be used with orgtbl-mode or orgstruct-mode in foreign buffers so you can author tables and lists in Org syntax and convert them in place to the target language.


[1] These libraries traditionnaly appear as ox-NAME, e.g., ox-koma-letter for koma-letter back-end.
