Tool to learn from your org-mode notes

Project description



Orglean provides toolbox for learning from your org-mode notes. It can generate mind maps, anki decks and even pdfs textbooks.

Modes [commands]


Convert notes to anki deck. The convertor will take all leafs of the tree (nodes without children) and convert them into anki cards. The node title is front-side of the card and the body is the back-side of the card.

Mind map

Convert notes into a mid map. This is a good way to visualize the relationships between each node.


Orglearn is able to create pdf from your notes. You can achieve similar results converting org files to pdf using emacs. But we think that using pandoc results in better looking pdfs and gives us the best way to customize the result.

To be able to convert org files to pdf you need to have pandoc installed on your system.


The latest stable release of orglearn can be obtained via pypi:

pip install orglearn

If you wish to install the latest master branch:

git clone && cd orglearn
python -m venv env && . env/bin/activate # In case you want to install in virtualenv.
pip install .


Below are some basic examples for running orglearn:

orglearn anki # Convert org file into anki deck ./file1.apkg
orglearn anki # Convert multiple files into single deck


Constributions are highly appreciated. If you choose to contribute please read the Contribution Guidelines (TBD).

We are using the black for the source code formatting. To use it automatically preprare pre-commit hooks with the following command.

pre-commit install # Install the pre-commit hooks
