recently (well not so recently unfortunately) I have to deal with a lot of forms.
forms forms forms... always almost the same, always almost boring.
I was wondering, can I teach org-mode to do this for me?
Ideally, I will use a org-table or org-properties, and execute e.g. a babel src-code block which in turn will take all this properties and fill it into a certain form and generate a PDF, send it to printer to let it me sign and hand it over.
Hence I could keep all the important infos of a task in org-mode and automatically generate necessary forms as requires.
E.g. lets take a order-form
I could keep company address, items, price, amount, as well as internal project numbers, etc. in a single org-node or possibly take it from different org-tables, org-nodes, org-files, etc. and compose a form with all this data. If the delivery address change, I only have to change it once and the next forms will automatically contain the new address.
Did someone try something like this already.
Ideally, a ODT-export would be nice too, but I guess even harder to achieve.
