Hi fellow Orgers,

I'd like to export a Org-mode formatted string to markdown, but without
the table of contents.

(org-export-string-as my-string 'md t '(toc nil))

didn't work (the ToC was still there).  What am I missing?

TIA,

Sorry I don't fully understand what doc means by overriding the Org
default settings.

However I the toc can be removed in this way. 

(org-export-string-as "#+OPTIONS: toc:nil \n\n* test\n1"
'md)

HTH,

It does seem odd that BODY-ONLY as `t' gives a toc. With latex it does not regardless of `:with-toc'.

: (org-export-string-as my-string 'md t '(:with-toc nil))

seems to give what you want.

Many thanks for the insights.

I know where to look now:

(info "(org) Publishing options")

I tried this neat code snippet today with Emacs 26.3 and Org-mode
9.1.9 and I got an error:

| org-export-barf-if-invalid-backend: Unknown "nil" back-end: Aborting export

When I execute the following code, I get the same error:
| (setq region "/foo/ *bar* https://example.com baz")
| (org-export-string-as region 'md t '(:with-toc nil))

Could it be that I don't have "md" as backend somehow? Is there a
hidden requirement?

Do I need something like "(require 'ox-md)"? I somehow noted that
those export requirements are not necessary any more. Maybe this is
wrong?

Thanks!

with
$ emacs -Q -L ./lisp -l org /tmp/test.org

then C-c C-e, I don't have markdown in the default export options.

tested with, Org mode version 9.5.3 (release_9.5.3-467-g2bd34e @
/home/djj/src/org-mode/lisp/).

And I still work with (require 'ox-md).

Best regards,
Jeremie

The variable `org-export-backends` default value is  

    '(ascii html icalendar latex odt) 

so you need to add 'md.

Unfortunately, I did not write down why I thought this is not
necessary any more. However, with the require statement, the error
is gone and the function works now.

Thanks!

The following links posted earlier to this mail list might be 
interesting for you since they are related to "exporting" of org text to 
other applications:

https://github.com/tecosaur/emacs-everywhere
System-wide popup Emacs windows for quick edits

https://github.com/jkitchin/ox-clip/
Copy formatted content from org-mode

The latter copies HTML, not markdown though.
