Hi,

I have troubles to export (or publish) some orgfiles, which contain
``src'' snippets intended for markdown. The (for me) unwelcome behavior
is the same for org-export and org-publish, I guess, since it has the
same core reason.

The problem currently for me is for the markdown format. I have seen
similar behavior for other exports, though did not care since it for
those situations, it was/is ``good enough''. Now, however, I do some
export to md, to be used for Jekyll webpages, and it's no longer good
enough.

For concreteness sake: I got some section


#+begin_src markdown
---
layout: default
title: Some Title
description: Some information
---
#+end_src


which is exported to md literally, but with 4 leading spaces as
indentation, like

    ---
    layout: default
    title: Some Title
    description: Some information
    ---

That's insofar unwelcome, as Jekyll wants those pieces of information
without indentation.

Alright, that's the situation, and the question is:

          is there a way to get rid of that

(during org-exporting/publishing, of course, not just post-processing
the md file).

This is what I tried so far. There are some variables one can tweak

1) org-src--preserve-indentation 
2) org-src-preserve-indentation 
3) org-edit-src-content-indentation

I set the 1) and 2) to "t" (also locally to the file to export). For 3),
the docs state it's about

  "Indentation for the content of a source code block."


So that sounded like it had something to do with my issue. Actually, the
original value was 2, and I set it to 0. There was no effect, the
indentation, when doing export, is still 4, as it was before setting
that to 0.


Any ideas? Thanks, Martin

Hi Martin,

if I understand correctly, you do not want to have a section that quotes
source code, but literal source code.

As far as I understand, that means using
#+begin_export markdown
...
#+end_export
block, not
#+begin_src markdown
...
#+end_src
block. That block will then be ignored in any other export format, and
used as-is in markdown export. (I hope "markdown" is the correct label,
I did not test it.)

Hope that helps,
Julius

Great, thanks, That was it. It never occured to me that it's not
begin_src that I wanted, I just tried to tweak that one.

So, indeed:  #+begin_export markdown etc. is exactly what I need.

Thanks again.
