One better than just using Jekyll, today I found a document on Using org to Blog with Jekyll, unfortunately it has a few typos which made getting up to speed with it a pain for me (small amount of knowledge of Jekyll, infinitely small amount of knowledge of org-mode).

The main problems seem to be:

  • writing #_BEGIN_HTML instead of #+BEGIN_HTML
  • not writing #+END_HTML at all

Then I was hit by having an out-of-date copy of org-mode — and consequently it was ignoring the body-only publishing directive in my $HOME/.emacs file, for some reason org-mode was installed on the system, but not in the DPKG database. apt-get install org-mode fixed that and now I’ve got version 6.34c.

So far it looks promising, far-less crufty than the mix of muse-mode and pyblosxom that is my current publishing method.

test: and and 2017-08-30 15:18:41.

Can I get ¼” or € or ™ and a formula (x=\sqrt{b}) to display? Yes I can if I upgrade from org-mode 6.34c that is distributed with lucid ubuntu to 6.35i. 1

If ( a^2=b ) and ( b=2 ), then the solution must be either ( a=+\sqrt{2} ) or ( a=-\sqrt{2} ).
