From: Felipe Csaszar <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: exporting from org-mode to S-expressions Date: Fri, 3 Apr 2009 19:07:51 +0000 (UTC) [thread overview] Message-ID: <loom.20090403T185702email@example.com> (raw) Hi, Has anyone thought about a general framework for exporting Org documents? I seem to recall from somewhere that it was possible to export an Org document to a lisp S-expression, and then parse the S-expression to generate the desired output. But have not seen this implemented. The benefit of this approach is that then building an exporter to any output format becomes trivial. In fact a translator, let's say from Org to Beamer, could be implemented as just one function that describes how each lisp tag translates into a Beamer tag, instead of a 1500+ lines-long program such org-export-latex.el. It would be very beneficial to have such a general translation framework implemented in Org. Best regards, Felipe PD: there are several formats to describe documents as S-expressions, here are some of them: http://www.cliki.net/Lisp+Markup+Languages
