Subject: Use environment variable for location of templates?
Date: Fri, 19 Jun 2009 11:39:09 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <211769420906190939w5b608778oec6d1adb739699e1@mail.gmail.com> (raw)


I'm a beginner at lisp/emacs, and realize this is a basic question.

I would like to use an environment variable WORKDIR to specify the
directory where
my remember templates are located.

I would like to have a template located in WORKDIR/tasks.org

Using the code below, when I invoke remember-mode and press "t", I get
the default
remember template instead of the WORKDIR/tasks.org.

;; I can get the value of WORKDIR successfully
(setq org-directory (getenv "WORKDIR"))

(setq org-remember-templates
	("Personal" ?p "* %U %?\n\n  %i\n  %a" "~/Documents/personal/notes.org")	
	("Work Tasks" ?t "* TODO %U %?\n\n  %i\n  %a" (concat org-directory

Any help would be appreciated.
