Installation

Use your favourite package manager:

packager.add('nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter')
packager.add('nvim-orgmode/orgmode')

Recommended

use {'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter'}
use {'nvim-orgmode/orgmode', config = function()
        require('orgmode').setup{}
end
}

Lazy loading (Not recommended)

Lazy loading via ft option works, but not completely. Global mappings are not set because plugin is not initialized on startup. Above setup has startup time of somewhere between 1 and 3 ms, so there are no many benefits in lazy loading. If you want to do it anyway, here's the lazy load setup:

use {'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter'}
use {'nvim-orgmode/orgmode',
    ft = {'org'},
    config = function()
            require('orgmode').setup{}
    end
    }
Plug 'nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter'
Plug 'nvim-orgmode/orgmode'
call dein#add('nvim-treesitter/nvim-treesitter')
call dein#add('nvim-orgmode/orgmode')

Setup

-- init.lua

local parser_config = require "nvim-treesitter.parsers".get_parser_configs()
parser_config.org = {
  install_info = {
    url = 'https://github.com/milisims/tree-sitter-org',
    revision = 'main',
    files = {'src/parser.c', 'src/scanner.cc'},
  },
  filetype = 'org',
}

require'nvim-treesitter.configs'.setup {
  -- If TS highlights are not enabled at all, or disabled via `disable` prop, highlighting will fallback to default Vim syntax highlighting
  highlight = {
    enable = true,
    disable = {'org'}, -- Remove this to use TS highlighter for some of the highlights (Experimental)
    additional_vim_regex_highlighting = {'org'}, -- Required since TS highlighter doesn't support all syntax features (conceal)
  },
  ensure_installed = {'org'}, -- Or run :TSUpdate org
}

require('orgmode').setup({
  org_agenda_files = {'~/Dropbox/org/*', '~/my-orgs/**/*'},
  org_default_notes_file = '~/Dropbox/org/refile.org',
})

Or if you are using init.vim:

" init.vim
lua << EOF
local parser_config = require "nvim-treesitter.parsers".get_parser_configs()
parser_config.org = {
  install_info = {
    url = 'https://github.com/milisims/tree-sitter-org',
    revision = 'main',
    files = {'src/parser.c', 'src/scanner.cc'},
  },
  filetype = 'org',
}

require'nvim-treesitter.configs'.setup {
  -- If TS highlights are not enabled at all, or disabled via `disable` prop, highlighting will fallback to default Vim syntax highlighting
  highlight = {
    enable = true,
    disable = {'org'}, -- Remove this to use TS highlighter for some of the highlights (Experimental)
    additional_vim_regex_highlighting = {'org'}, -- Required since TS highlighter doesn't support all syntax features (conceal)
  },
  ensure_installed = {'org'}, -- Or run :TSUpdate org
}

require('orgmode').setup({
  org_agenda_files = {'~/Dropbox/org/*', '~/my-orgs/**/*'},
  org_default_notes_file = '~/Dropbox/org/refile.org',
})
EOF
  • Open agenda prompt: <Leader>oa
  • Open capture prompt: <Leader>oc
  • In any orgmode buffer press g? for help

Completion

If you use nvim-compe and want to enable autocompletion, add this to your compe config:

require'compe'.setup({
  source = {
    orgmode = true
  }
})

For nvim-cmp, add orgmode to list of sources:

require'cmp'.setup({
  sources = {
    { name = 'orgmode' }
  }
})

For completion.nvim, just add omni mode to chain complete list and add additional keyword chars:

vim.g.completion_chain_complete_list = {
  org = {
    { mode = 'omni'},
  },
}
vim.cmd[[autocmd FileType org setlocal iskeyword+=:,#,+]]

Or just use omnifunc via <C-x><C-o>

Tree-sitter info

Built in tree-sitter parser is used for parsing the org files. Highlights are experimental and partially supported.

Advantages of tree-sitter over built in parsing/syntax:

  • More reliable, since parsing is done with proper parsing tool
  • Better highlighting (Experimental, still requires improvements)
  • Future features will be easier to implement because grammar already parses some things that were not parsed before (tables, latex, etc.)
  • Allows for easier hacking (custom motions that can work with TS nodes, etc.)

Troubleshoot

Folding is not working Make sure you are not overriding foldexpr in Org buffers with nvim-treesitter folding

Indentation is not working Make sure you are not overriding indentexpr in Org buffers with nvim-treesitter indentation

I get treesitter/query.lua errors when opening agenda/capture prompt or org files Make sure you are using latest changes from tree-sitter-org grammar. by running :TSUpdate org and restarting the editor.

Dates are not in English Dates are generated with Lua native date support, and it reads your current locale when creating them. To use different locale you can add this to your init.lua:

vim.cmd('language en_US.utf8')

or init.vim

language en_US.utf8

Just make sure you have en_US locale installed on your system. To see what you have available on the system you can start the command :language and press <TAB> to autocomplete possible options.

Plugins

See all available plugins on orgmode-nvim

If you built a plugin please add "orgmode-nvim" topic to it.

NOTE: None of the Emacs Orgmode plugins will be built into orgmode.nvim. Anything that's a separate plugin in Emacs Orgmode should be a separate plugin in here. Point of this plugin is to provide functionality that's built into Emacs Orgmode core, and a good foundation for external plugins. If you want to build a plugin, post suggestions and improvements on Plugins infrastructure issue.

Development

Tests

To run tests, plenary.nvim is necessary. Once installed, run:

make test

Documentation

Vim documentation is auto generated from DOCS.md file with md2vim.

Formatting

Formatting is done via StyLua. To format everything run:

make format

Parser

Parsing is done via builtin tree-sitter parser and tree-sitter-org grammar.

Plans

  • Support searching by properties
  • Improve checkbox hierarchy
  • Support todo keyword faces
  • Support clocking work time
  • Improve folding
  • Support exporting (via existing emacs tools)
  • Support archiving to specific headline
  • Support tables
  • Support diary format dates
  • Support evaluating code blocks

Thanks to

  • @dhruvasagar and his vim-dotoo plugin that got me started using orgmode. Without him this plugin would not happen.
  • @milisims for writing a tree-sitter parser for org
  • vim-orgmode for some parts of the code (mostly syntax)
