I believe that org-mode
is the most powerful toolset that can leverage documentation and code.
I also love literate programming and I've found nothing like org-mode for it.
I think that org-mode adoption is mainly found in academic and personal context and rarely in commercial organizations.
Too often I see myself being forced to use Markdown for project documentation and miss all the features that org-mode could have offered to the entire project and not just the documentation.
The main reason why I can't use org-mode at work is that my colleagues don't all use emacs.
What I miss is an DSL for Org-Mode, like HTML does, and that other editors or IDE would implement his functions, a bit like the browsers do.
If org-mode could be embeddable in different runtimes I could imagine HTTP services implemented for org-mode
, and I think of tools like Jupyter
could be built on the org-mode standards.
I have many other implementation details and use cases that I would like to share, but can be a bit too much for introducing the topic.
Is it a crazy idea if Org-Mode could become a DSL rather than a mode for emacs?
