Hi,

yesterday I did this command in my org-mode git repo:

   grep defcustom lisp/*el |wc -l

and got 378 as an answer.  378 user-customizable variables,
no kidding.

However, I bet that only about 10% of these are really used
by more that one user :-).  So when a new users starts digging
into Org-mode, they simply must be confused by the amount
of variables that can be set.

So here is the idea:  I would like to find out which variables
users actually customize.  This could be the basis
for a great article on Worg, describing just these selected
variables.

In addition, I could make a special customization group which only
contains those variables (Emacs allows to put a variable into several
groups).  It would be awesome to have, and a much easier start into
customizing Org.

So here is my question to all of you.  Could you, in reply to this
message, list all the Org-related variables that you have customized,
along with the values you used?

If you want to do more, I'd also love to see comments on

- why you set the variable like this
- if you feel that the default value of that variable
   should be different
- Any other comments you might what to give.

Of course, if there is a volunteer who would like to organize
this info into a Worg page, I would even be more happy ...

Thanks!

- Carsten

You make this sound as if it was a bad thing... ;)

Phew! For a second I thought you would jump on the 'gnome' train of
thought that "too much configuration is bad, mmkay?" I feared that
you'd intend to get rid of those customisation variables.

I'd hate to see that happen to any software project.

I don't care what any usability experts say (self-proclaimed or not),
I want to be able to change those settings. I tend to heavily
customise just about every software that I use.

However organising the most-often used variables seems like a good
idea. It might also make a lot of sense to identify the values that
people most often use to arrive at a more sensible set of defaults.

I'm afraid I have given you a lot of information to process now. I
hope somebody is ready and willing to organise it.

Hi Carsten,

My org setup and usage at this point is fairly simple (I'm waiting for
James Smith's Remember rewrite to get more ambitious). Here are the
variables I use:

org-use-fast-todo-selection
org-agenda-files
org-remember-templates
org-default-notes-file

Not at all.  I am just surprized that it  sooo many.

Nononono, de-scoping was last years April Fools Joke, and
it is not April just yet. :-)

I also like a lot of customizability, but providing a ladder for new
users is a nice thing to do.

Yes.  There are some "buts" to the question of defaults, and majority
use cannot always be a reason.  When I decide about a default setting,
I use what I think is best, but subject to the condition that the
default behavior should be intuitive and easy to grasp, not too magic,
not too different from standard Emacs behavior.
Still, there may be cases where another setting meets all these  
criteria,
and I would like to find out about them.

Thanks for your detailed list!  I hope we will get lots more,
this exercise makes most sense if lots of people reply....

org-export-with-special-strings is defined twice (and counted twice) in
lisp/org-exp.el (so it's really only 377 ;)

I'll send my list of variables shortly.

And I wrote some comments

- org-directory :: Different directories for work & personal.
- org-agenda-include-diary :: I like to use %%diary-anniversary MM DD YYYY).
- org-agenda-sorting-strategy :: Change `todo' sort.  It drove me
     crazy that #A items could appear at the middle or bottom of list.
- org-agenda-start-on-weekday :: Different at work or home.
- org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled :: Keep global todo list less cluttered.
- org-annotate-file-storage-file :: I find org-annotate-file very useful.
- org-attach-method :: My first Unix didn't have symlinks....   :-/
- org-attach-auto-tag :: I don't like the default tag, but I think
     it's useful to see until you get used to how attachments work.
- org-completion-use-ido :: Ido has its quirks but is worth using.
- org-confirm-elisp-link-function :: I generally prefer y-or-n-p everywhere.
- org-default-notes-files :: I like my notes with my other org files.
- org-hide-emphasis-markers :: I got used to this from using Planner.
     Not for everyone.
- org-id-method :: I think this was from when uuidgen was not the
                   default, I probably don't need this any more.
- org-link-mailto-program :: I use `mutt'.
- org-log-done :: I like to be able to enter a note at every state
                  change.
- org-mairix-display-hook :: For [[mairix:] ] links.
- org-mairix-mutt-display-command :: Mutt command when showing linked msg.
- org-remember-templates :: Make the Todo template look more consistent.
- org-return-follows-link :: This feels right to me.
- org-reverse-note-order :: Sometimes I want this, sometimes not....
- org-special-ctrl-a/e :: Useful.
- org-special-ctrl-k :: Useful.
- org-time-stamp-rounding-minutes :: Move quickly, and I don't need
     great precision anyway.  What I'd *really* like though is to have
     S-up move by this value and then have C-S-up move by 1.  Then I
     could zoom in on any time value quickly.
- org-todo-keywords :: Being able to define your own is great!
- org-todo-keyword-faces :: Sometimes these faces are forgotten (or
     ignored?) when I create a new frame on a different display.
- org-use-fast-todo-selection :: Very handy.
- org-publish-project-alist :: I don't use publishing very often.
- org-link-abbrev-alist :: Very handy!  I wish I could think of a way
     to execute something without confirmation though.  But perhaps
     that is too dangerous...

Yes, I'm afraid I've used a fair number of those myself at one point or
another.

I've attached my list of variables. Some of the settings are set to the
default, but their still in my .emacs file as a result of switching them
on and off. I certainly don't use a majority of the variables, but it's
nice to know they are there.

Perhaps in customization there could be a distinction between "basic"
(or "setup") and "advanced" variables. The basic variables could be
those that most org users adjust--the ones that have the most visible
consequences and are central to the core functionality of org
(org-directory, for instance). The advanced variables could then be for
those hopeless souls, like myself, who spend far too much time tweaking.

Best,

Matt

It seems I'm using lots of these variables currently. (58)

I tune my work flow regularly - so some of these values change over time.

Here's how I found my matches:

$ git grep -h defcustom lisp/*.el | awk '{print $2}'  >/tmp/customvars.txt && grep -hf /tmp/customvars.txt ~/.emacs ~/custom.el >/tmp/myvars.txt;

The resulting list was edited to fill in more detail for multiline
items.

Now you asked for _all_ org variables ... and some of them aren't
defcustom settings (like org-agenda-mode-hook, and
org-blank-before-bullet) so I've included everything.

Where a hook uses a custom function I've included that too just for
completeness.

Here you go...

Here are mine although, after so long, some may be the defaults as I
make settings and then change them...

I really do like the idea of customisation groups as the number of
settings can be overwhelming.  However, most of the ones I care about
are clearly identified in the manual so I'm not too worried!

I wanted to point out that, we are fast approaching a situation where
org manual will become the size of the Emacs manual. :-)  For me, I
use org for the core purpose of task tracker, that's it.  As long as
that core is not messed around with, I'd be happy with an infinite
number of customisable vars.

I haven't done any customisation apart from what is required to
recognise org files and the state transitions that I need for various
states of the TODO items.

This is going to be very useful, IMHO.

I am collating the information in the following format.

| Submitter | Variable | Value | Comment |

Further analyses like which were the most commonly customized variables,
their values etc. can then be derived from the listing (may be using R
or Excel.)  Ideas on how to better organize this data are welcome.

So far we have 13 responses.

I also added a new class "myarticle" to org-export-latex-classes that is the
same as "article" without the a4paper option.  I would vote for dropping the
a4paper option from the default class, and let the papersize be handled by the
local TeX customization.

Hi Manish,

If your results table is named with
#+TBLNAME:org-variables-table
then you can create a table of counts for each org variable with

#+TBLR: columns:2 action:tabulate table:org-variables-table

That will be sorted alphabetically on variable name. To have it sorted
by the counts you could use

#+TBLR: table:org-variables-table
#+TBLRR: x <- sort(table(x[,2]), decreasing=TRUE)

And to restrict it to the top 30 that would be
#+TBLRR: x <- sort(table(x[,2]), decreasing=TRUE)[1:30]

http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~davison/software/org-table-R/org-tblR.el

Dan

(You need to have ess-mode installed, and have R running with M-x
R. Then issue org-table-R-apply with point in the above lines.)

(And with the obvious alteration you can rank the survey respondents in
terms of how hardcore our org customizations are...)

Nice and simple for me :) I have this setup for working at university,
I think odd-levels and hide-leading-stars should be default non-nil -
these are just about essential to me.

I change a few more things in the agenda just to get a slightly
cleaner view, but I've only decided on these settings recently, so I
can't say I like them or not.

Hi Manish, thanks so much for doing this, really appreciate it.
Maybe add a column with the default value, so that we can be sure
that the did not just set the default value?

But this is not important, we can do this automatically when
we mine that data.

I am one of those confused 'newbs' - I use emacs exclusively for org- 
mode. (but it is growing on me)
I don't know where or how to customize it - so I use it just like it  
is. (not that I wouldn't like to tweek stuff.)

The first hit is free! ;-)

Org-mode (like Planner) can pull people into using Emacs (however scary
and intimidating it might seem in the beginning.)  And it's only a short
step from bbdb, remember and even mighty gnus. :) I have had almost the
same experience as the author here [1].

But remember: planning != doing (might seem obvious to you but I still
don't /get/ it. :)

There are two components to this:

1. knowing how to put stuff in .emacs (either by hand or by using
Customize interface)
2. knowing what to put in there.

For #1: Seek help from Emacs documentation or on Emacs-help mailing
list.

For #2: Imagine the functionality you would want in your ideal
project/task planner and then look that up in Org-mode manual, FAQ and
list archives.  If you do not find it there (unlikely) then do not
hesitate to ask on the list.  Just do not try to customize everything in
one go.  Keep using and customizing it as you better understand your own
workflows.

I have four org config files:  org-config.el, org-config-remember.el,
org-config-latex.el, and org-config-publish.  At the beginning of
org-config.el I load the other three.

From org-config.el:

org-config-latex.el sets org-export-latex-classes, but I never actually

export.

org-config-publish.el sets org-publish-project-alist, and

I did not know of an obvious or easy way to find out the default
values. :-/

Here are the results so far.

20 people responsed within the first day reporting about 479
customizations including 187 unique variables (49.6% !, assuming total
377 variables.)

NB: I did try to filter out faces but a few might have crept through.

First top tweakers.

apart from some face definitions and things like export or agenda view

it, here you are:

Hi Manish,

what can I say, awesome!

To get the default values, you could do

(get 'org-some-variable 'standard-value)

and evaluate this.  You can do this with a formula in the table,
I have successfully tried this:

#+TBLFM: $2='(let ((x (prin1-to-string (get '$1 'standard-value))))  
(org-require-autoloaded-modules) (if (or (string-match "\n" x) (>  
(length x) 40)) "complex" x));L

It get the value, converts it to a string and inserts it if it is
not too long and does not contain a newline.


- Carsten

Here's my list of variables. I think all my org-mode settings
have been done via customize, which I've just realised doesn't
indent things very tidily. I've tried to fix it, but I'm not
really used to elisp style.

The formula seems to work but I am getting nil for /all/ variables.
That does not seem right.  There would be some variable with non-nil
standard value, no?

You need to change $2 and $1 to the relevant columns in your table,
maybe this is the problem?  I made this formula on one of your
extracted tables where the variable was in column one and I have
created a new column 2 for the default values.

also, the formula seems to return (nil) or (t) instead of nil or t,
so it seems to add an additional pair of parenthesis.

I prefer customization on a per-file basis. I have 
only 3 files, I began such way and did not investigate
if it is possible to define everything in .emacs like:

(setq org-todo-keywords /namefile/ "TODO WtF DONE")

Here we go:

 file 1
#+SEQ_TODO: TODO WAITING-FOR DONE
; why? GTD scheme.
#+STARTUP: overview lognoterepeat hidestars
[1]; hidestars makes the outline look clearer

 file 2
#+STARTUP: content
[2]; why? I need to se the content of the tree
#+STARTUP: customtime
[3]; why? I have to use such format in column view
;
; comment: would it be possible also to *export* 
;          the time in such format?
;
#+DRAWERS: dummy
[4]; why? I use this file as a database, so need to see the :PROPERTIES: drawers contents with the values of every variable.

#Local Variables:
#org-time-stamp-custom-formats : ("<%d-%m-%Y>" . "<%d-%m-%Y %a %H:%M>")
#End:

 file 3
#+SEQ_TODO: READ DONE
[5]; why? Its a file I use to remember to read scientific 
; journals the day  they're published on web


..emacs 
org-remember-templates 
; my templates ;-)

(custom-set-variables
 '(org-agenda-files 
; why? does my file coincide with Carsten's ones? ;-)
;
 '(safe-local-variable-values (quote ((org-export-html-style . " 
[6]; why? because I have to export file to html & import in M$Word
;      for sharing with coworkers

-------------------

Yes, I had changed only one of them.  Thanks.

When I applied the formula on the main table (in raw data file), it did
return nil, (nil), t, (t) and complex for values.  Perhaps getting a nil
or (nil) or a t or (t) depends on the kind of values a variable can
take?

Anyhow, I will try and add additional results to the data if we get more
responses (so far 2.)

And please use the default values to clean out "configurations" to the  
default.

Thanks!

Somehow, I woke up this morning to find that all my 'Customize'
settiings were missing from my .emacs (that ever happened to anyone?),
so these are just a few variables I've set up manually.


 '(org-hide-leading-stars t)
  ;; looks cleaner, best with lighter preceeding stars, so I can still
count levels

org-export-latex-classes
    set to a long value you don't want in your table.  Includes a few
custom headers for my thesis


I use org for writing and note-taking, and for any elaborate writing
project, I always set up both local TODO keywords and tags.

And don't forget that 'other' org customization variable:

(setq default-major-mode 'org-mode)
 ;might as well.  I came to emacs for org.

This thread is very helpful, particularly since I'm the newish
org-learner it's designed for.  Very good idea, Carsten.

Scot

(Ah, now I think that my Customizations problem had to do with an
.emacs that wasn't fully loaded, but to which I tried to save
customizations anyway, or which I edited in vim while I had it open in
emacs, or something silly like that.... Though I'm sure I didn't touch
the customization section itself.  I'll have to be more careful when I
get the config-file problem warning in the future).

Hi,

(2nd attempt at sending it to the list...)

FWIW my two custom-set-variables entries:

  '(org-emphasis-regexp-components (quote ("     ('\"" "-     .,:?;'\")_" "

,\"'" "." 1)))
  '(org-hide-emphasis-markers t)

Shaun.

Hi,


I've already sent a list of variables in use,but without values. Somehow
I missed the start (point?) of this thread.

This poll is much more fun _with_ values actually. Great to read all
those tiny little tweaks here :)



Here come the values:

follow):


 '(org-agenda-restore-windows-after-quit t)

This is actually a very surprising and positive result!

I had forgotten the per-file customizations. Do you want these too?

I have pruned this list of repetitions and boring stuff like TITLE,
AUTHOR, etc.

#+STARTUP:   lognotestate
This must have seemed like a good idea at some stage. Strangely
enough, it doesn't seem to work. Possibly because I have org-log-done
set to t in my global config, which does not seem to be one of the
allowed values.

#+SEQ_TODO: TODO(t) STARTED(s) WAITING(w@) | DONE(d) CANCELED(c@)
#+SEQ_TODO: | BOUGHT(b)
#+SEQ_TODO: RUNNING(r@) PAUSED(p@) | FINISHED(f@)
#+SEQ_TODO: | ANOTHERDAY(a@)
#+SEQ_TODO: MAYBE(m) PLAN_TO_BUY(p@) DONT_THINK_SO(d@) | BOUGHT(b) NEVER(n)
#+SEQ_TODO: PENDIENTE(p@) | APROPADO(a) DESAPROPADO(d@)
Different files require different todo sequences.

#+OPTIONS:   H:5 num:t toc:nil \n:nil @:t ::t |:t ^:t -:t f:t *:t
TeX:t LaTeX:t skip:t d:nil tags:not-in-toc
Export options are set differently in different files according to
need, although I now tend to set the :EXPORT_OPTIONS: property on a
sub-tree.

#+LINK: mailplane shell:open mailplane:%s
#+LINK: adsauthor
http://adsabs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/nph-abs_connect?author=%s&db_key=AST
#+LINK: adscode http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/%s

#+EXPORT_SELECT_TAGS: export
#+EXPORT_EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexport
I generally use the COMMENT state to control what is exported, but at
one stage I must have tried to do something more complicated. I didn't
stick to it.


Cheers

Will

Hopefully this isn't too late.

Using customize, here is what I have:

(org-agenda-ndays 1)                   ; I like daily agenda
(org-agenda-skip-deadline-if-done t)
(org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-done t)

                                         stuff
(org-deadline-warning-days 3)          ; This covers a weekend, usually

Using setq(), here is what I have:

(setq org-directory "~/org/")
(setq org-default-notes-file (concat org-directory "/process.org"))
(setq org-todo-keywords
      '(
        (sequence "INBOX(i)" "TICKLER(t!)" "|" "FILE(f@)" "CANCELED(k@)")

Please find below my org related customisation (if it is still of
interest).  I have to admit that I can't remember what some of it does
or why I put it that way.

A few comments might be useful:

  This is my work configuration on Windows XP, using a recent emacs 23
  from emacs w32.  I am set up to use cygwin.  I use a fairly recent
  version of org-mode (never more than about 10 versions behind
  Carsten!)

  I use org-mode with visual line mode and abbreviation mode.
  Formerly, I used it with flyspell mode, but there seemed to be a
  problem with w32 emacs so I have disabled it.

  I have one agenda file per project scattered across a windows file
  system, to accompany the corresponding project.  The larger files
  contain thousands of lines of text - I haven't found a need to
  archive yet.

  I log the date at which I complete tasks, but have no need of the
  time.

  I generally use the global todo list, rather than other agenda
  views, and tend not to schedule tasks explicitly.  To keep this view
  neatly aligned, I use 4 letter words for todo states.

  My company has its own week numbering system (not ISO).  I
  approximate this with (org-agenda-start-on-weekday 6) but it would
  be nice to be able to be able to choose a more general week
  numbering scheme.
  
  All my org files have a .txt extension and set the mode by their
  first line.

  I use 4 levels of priority (going down to D for tasks that I will
  probably never get to).

  I sometimes use html export, primarily as a route to importing into
  a word processor (cut and paste from the browser), but generally
  only on a small part of the org file.

I think we should not close the door long as there are poeple willing to
share their customizations.  So I will keep adding additional
customizations to the data in batches of 5 each.  We have two additional
responses so far (from Charles and Mike.)

Thanks!

It's been almost 5 years since that last check and about time to do it
again.  And it's even crazier now. :)

Ouch.  That's nearly half of the 1792 Emacs options!

It certainly says something, but I don't know what :)

Well, you can use that for marketing:

it's the best proof, that it is not a lie, if you call org-mode "highly
configurable" 
:-)

p.s. for a new user, the large choice of options can really be quite
confusing

Maybe it says it's still a long way to go ;)

cd gnus_git && grep defcustom lisp/*.el | wc -l

Mhhh... that's somehow comforting (but I don't know how!)

Indeed.  We always need more tutorials and more structure in Worg.

I may help with a fresh tutorial at some point, but I need time.

True. But Is there a table with all the variables, in the form of:

| Variable | *short* description | link to manual |

This might be useful, especially as a dynamic web page, where one can
filter the variables - e.g. only babel variables dealing with "session".

Cheers,

Rainer

Not exactly this, but there is http://orgmode.org/worg/doc.html

(This is for "options", i.e. user variables, not all variables.)

If you want to make the current page more dynamic (maybe by testing if
INFOJS produces something nice?), please go ahead!

No table but "M-x customize-group RET org RET" gives all user
customisable variables, many (most? all?) grouped logically as well. 

Okay, maybe emacs's customisation mode is not the most intuitive to a
newbie but it does the job admirably in typical emacs function... in my
opinion.  I often use this mode to explore new packages, and old ones
when I've forgotten how to use them.

808 options. That is Scary, and daunting and amazing. 
Any possibility to get a update on the survey on which configuration are in 
use as well? 
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-configs/org-customization-survey.html contains 
excellent information. But how have things evolved?

I have just started to scratch on the surface of orgmode. Maybe 8 months of 
usage. For me it would help me understand what I should look into next.

Thank you every one for all of your contributions.

Although I am not in general a big fan of emacs's customize feature, it
can be very useful for exploring options in packages.  I would suggest
you do

  M-x customize-group RET org RET

and browse...
