Org is a highly flexible structured plain text file format, composed of a few simple, yet versatile, structures — constructed to be both simple enough for the novice and powerful enough for the expert.
Get a glimpse of the expressive power Org offers in the example below. Click the headlines and links to discover how Org intelligently folds structural content.

* Update Manual
We should provide a simpler experience for new users. Org has a lot to offer, but it's easy to become overwhelmed. Providing a clearer introduction to the basics would be a good improvement. Hopefully the new "Quickstart" page will help with that.

BabelPerform literate programing in org, with notebook-like live code execution in the buffer.

Nearly every Org user has a story to tell about how Org enables and empowers them — some have found it so useful that they have written (scientific) papers about the value of Org for conducting reproducible research. Some have produced third-part tools to enjoy Org outside of Emacs, such as mobile applications.
The de facto mimetype for Org files is
text/org. Org files use the
.org extension. Most operating systems don't know to open
in Emacs, but they can be configured to do so without much effort.
While the reference implementation of Org in Emacs lisp is by far the most featureful, there are many additional tools that work with Org.
Worg, a World of Org
Org and Org-mode have so many use cases that it is simply not possible to easily document them, let alone show them all off on a single page. As a result, Worg serves as a community wiki and provides a place to document and share information about all aspects of using and working with Org.
For example, Worg contains:
- The FAQ
- Org hacks
- A list of tutorials
- Documentation on all hooks, commands and options
- Org in the wild
- …and much more
Worg is maintained as a Git repository of Org files that are published as an HTML website. New contributors are welcome.
