Emacs Org Mode File Support

I currently use Emacs Org mode for my zettelkasten knowledge system, which uses .org files (I use this plugin: https://www.eliasstorms.net/zetteldeft/). I had originally used markdown, but it has several issues and inconsistent versions which led me to switch to .org. It seems that many developers with zettelkasten systems have also chosen this setup.

I love the UI and Vim keybindings for Obsidian and would love to try it. It would be awesome to have support for .org files (or at least a way to convert them) in addition to markdown.


Whydoncha rename all those .org to .md? Or do you still want to keep using org mode simultaneously with Obsidian?

There were few org-mode parser except Emacs itself.
Supporting org-mode in Obsidian may be an unreasonable request.

Maybe as a huge plugin

replace(β€˜org/*.org’, β€˜*’, β€˜#’)

Yeah, using org mode has some nice additions such as expanding/collapsing large sections. But I agree that it encompasses a lot of functionality so there would probably have to be a lot of interested folks for it to make sense.

This would be very very very nice.
even just supporting some org-mode features like folding headings and indentation of headings would be great.
