Using Emacs - Intro to Org Mode

This video is a brief introduction to org-mode, a mode I use for all sorts of things.

We'll dive into org-mode later in the series. Right now I just want you to see the basics since we'll be using org-mode for any notes that are written up during this series.

Actually, all my blog posts are written in org-mode.

Here are the important lines to add to your Emacs init.el file to get the nice looking bullets when in org-mode:

(use-package org-bullets
:ensure t
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook (lambda () (org-bullets-mode 1))))

About a month ago, Emacs user Harry Schwartz gave a nice overview talk on org-mode. If you want to get a better idea as to all the things you can do with it, check it out:

Next time, we'll look at a little Elisp. After that, we'll dive in to using Emacs effectively and efficiently.
