Re: Emacs, Org Mode, and Exporting to The Command Line Troubles

Dear Colin,

we have implemented a preview service at our institute which converts org-files 
for people who do not want to or can not run org-mode locally (people can hand 
in org-files which will be converted to HTML as personal web pages for 
institute members, It runs on a Unix 
box and the core - the part which is called from a web frontend and converts an 
org-file (and associated files in our case) looks like this:

/opt/emacs23.sol/bin/emacs -Q --batch --eval "(add-to-list 'load-path 
\"/opt/org-7.01/lisp/\")" -load "/var/opt/webstack/apache2/2.2/htdocs/org/emacs-
setup.el" --visit="$1" --eval "(set-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8)" 
--funcall my-org-publish-current

The main point is, like Erik pointed out, that we define the path to the 
org-mode lisp files and in emacs-setup.el then define some functions for 
publishing org-files in a project-oriented fashion - that part could be simpler 
in your case.

Warm regards,
