Org Mode 9.2 and beyond

26 March 2020

The clock nears midnight, a sweaty emacs user is sitting in a darkly room with only the monitors lighting up the space.

To his amusement he finds out that the version of Org-mode he is using is 9.3.6 and his emacs version reaches the high number of 28.0.50 not even a beta version yet.

With the version of Org-mode he is currently using, some things seems to have deprecated, such as the fast < s TAB a favorite among the things he liked about Org-mode.

Later on he finds out that the org-structure-template-alist has now been revamped, which means he will now have to use another way of enabling it.

Here's what you will have to do:

  1. require org-tempo
  2. change the list items to be ("el" . "src emacs-lisp")

And for the newly arrived Emacser:

(require 'org-tempo)
(add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist '("el" . "src emacs-lisp"))

These lines can easily be added within the :config macro in use-package.
