Org-mode Import Tools

  • From Palm TODO database to Orgmode. This Translator was written by Olaf Dietsche.
  • From Remind to Org by Detlef Steuer.
  • From OmniFocus to Org by Magnus Henoch.
  • From TaskPaper to Org by Carsten Dominik. A quite complete translation can be achieved by a compact Perl program:

    /^(\t*)-(.*?)((@\w+ *)*)$/;
    @u=grep{$_ ne'@done'}(@t=split/ +/,$3);
    $_="*"x(2+length$1).(@t==@u?" TODO":" DONE").$2.join(":",@v)."\n"if$&;
    s/^\w.*:\s*$/* $&/;
    END{printf "* Setup\n#+TAGS: %s\n",join' ',keys%t}

    This program is quite unreadable because it resulted from a contest for the most compact translator - but it works very well anyway.

  • From ODT to Org, by Jose Maria Alkala.
  • From ICalendar to Org. There are some tools and documentation related:
    • There is a mention of some tools at the org-tools section, here.
    • For Google users, see this.
    • For a command line tool that converts files, URLs (e.g., Google Calendar), email attachments, and other sources into org-mode events, see this. It can integrate with crontab, systemd, etc. for automatic updating. An example of mu4e integration for processing email attachments with ics content is shown.


Google Calendar
There is a method for synching. Read this tutorial.
