Project description

With orgco you can convert Emacs’ orgmode to other formats.

Supported output formats:

  • HTML
  • reStructuredText (rst)

Supported orgmode tags:

  • headers
  • code (inline and multi-line)
  • lists (ordered, unordered and definition lists)
  • tables
  • links (external and images)
  • italic, bold, underlined, stroked markups

To use orgco install it from PyPI:

Orgco provides 2 simple functions to convert orgmode to html (convert_html()) and rst (convert_rst()).

from orgco import convert_html

with open('') as f:
    html = convert_html(

The HTML converter takes some optional parameters:

  • header=True: To decide if the output should only contain the inner body or act as a normal HTML file with header and body.
  • highlight=True: To enable code highlighting.
  • includes=['style.css']: To include some additional CSS files.

Orgco comes also with a command line tool:

usage: [-h] -i INPUT -o OUTPUT -f FORMAT [--header] [--highlight]
                [--includes INCLUDES [INCLUDES ...]]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -i INPUT, --input INPUT
  -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT
  -f FORMAT, --format FORMAT
  --includes INCLUDES [INCLUDES ...]
