Hi Jarmo,

1. I want to tangle to the default filename (derived from name of org

You can specify a full path as the value of :tangle, but I don't know of a
way to specify only the directory.

As a workaround, you can also use emacs-lisp code as the value for :tangle,
so you could do something like this:

 :tangle (concat "/some/dir/" (file-name-base (file-name-sans-extension
(buffer-file-name))) ".ext")

3. Is it possible to tangle automatically on (every) export? I always

I use the following hook to tangle on every save. I find it indispensable :)

  (add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (add-hook 'after-save-hook
                                   'run-at-end 'only-in-org-mode)))

Also, check out my free book "Literate Config", where I discuss some more
tips about Literate Programming: https://leanpub.com/lit-config/read

Hope this helps,
