For a long time I've wanted to write in org-mode and export it to latex,
but I've never been successful until now. So here is a yasnippet that
allows you to do it -

/foo/ Your main text goes here /foo/

'glos' is your glossary file, and 'acro' is your acronyms file, and 'bib' is 
your biblatex references.

'foo.glos' ;; needs to be a proper latex glossary file
'foo.acro' ;; needs to be a proper latex acronym file
'foo.bib' ;; needs to be a proper latex bib file, I'm using 'JabRef' for it.

This file will accept a 'cite:foo' for biblatex references, and also 
'\gls{foo}' for glossary and
acronym entries, and '\index{foo}' for index entries.

You *must* give the complete path of your 'foo.bib' file as it sets up where 
every other file can be

This works with a complete setup of 'TexLive 2015'. 

\todo{This is how your 'TODO' items should appear}

If you don't like something, then comment it out and do a rebuild to see
if your modification works.

To use -
a - 'C-c C-e l l' to get a latex tex file
b - Then use your favourite tex command to build it into a PDF file. I
use my 'pdfbuild' file which I've uploaded to my blog "A taste of linux".

The above template will give you a nice PDF file with a table of
contents, every page with a watermark on saying 'DRAFT', the ability to
put '\todo{comments}' in to show you what needs to be done at that
point. And if you've set them up, a bibliography, glossary and acronyms
and an index.

As they say in Parliament "I commend it to the house." :)

And I hope its useful for you?
