Org mode for Emacs – Your Life in Plain Text

Org mode is for keeping notes, maintaining TODO lists, planning projects, and authoring documents with a fast and effective plain-text system.
Created by Carsten Dominik in 2003, maintained by Bastien Guerry and developed by many others.



The stable version of Org is 9.4, as of September 2020. See the release notes.

Get it with M-x package-install RET org RET (see Org ELPA).

Or download tar.gz or zip archives.

You can browse the development version from code.orgmode.org or clone the repo:

~$ git clone https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode.git

Daily snapshots of the development version: tar.gz or zip.

The de facto mimetype for org attachments is text/org.
