Okay this is like my fifth attempt to blog and so far, unsuccessfully.

My first couple of blogs were on blogspot around 2005 or so, later I switched to dokuwiki, which is awesome but it didn’t integrated well on my workflow. So I tried some extensions to try to write directly in markdown but it didn’t work well for me. Then I moved to Hyde, which a Python static website generator. I invested quite some time customizing everything to my needs and while it was functional, I had to write in markdown (which I don’t like…). I tried to write in RST at that time without success.

Then I moved from Vim to Emacs and discovered org-mode… And yeah, everything changed… I love Emacs+Org-Mode and I used quite a lot (and I still use Vim occasionally).

I wanted to write directly in Org-Mode for my new blog to see if content flows this time (hopefully) and I can achieve the integration I was looking for all these years.

The version of this blog uses plain Org-Mode and Hugo with ox-hugo as a middle helper. So far, so good, I just migrated my old posts which are few in number.

What I am looking forward is to create a mix of a Blog and a digital garden for my notes (also known as second brain or exobrain).

The rest of the file is actually a sandbox of general Org-Mode formatting to check out how it renders on Hugo itself.

## This is H1 #

There is paragraph under h1

### H2 #

• H3

Something

• H3 with a tag :sometag:

## Some basic test #

This is bold, italic, code, verbatim and strike text.

• However bold and italic doesn’t play well when used together like in markdown.

## List #

• Bullet
• Another bullet
• child

## Check List [1⁄3][33%]#

Heading and has special class however <ul> and <li> are plain.

### DONE done to-do #

Items are added with special class.

## Tables #

number description
1 looooong long name
5 name

<tr> has even and odd classes.

## Source Code #

Emacs Lisp:

(defun negate (x)
"Negate the value of x."
(- x))
(print
(negate 10))

There are interesting classes like sourceCode and example. Also there html5 attributes prefixed with rundoc-.

factorial :: Int -> Int
factorial 0 = 1
factorial n = n * factorial (n - 1)

## LaTeX #

• Characters: α β → ↑ \or \and \implies π ∞
• Inline Math: $$f(x) = x^2$$
• More complex: $$\frac{x^2}{2}$$

LaTeX characters are wrapped in <em> and Math inside <span class="math inline">.

### \mathscr{Hello!} #

\begin{align*} 8 * 3 &= 8 + 8 \
&= 24 \end{align*}

NOTE: There is standard LaTeX embeded above which is skipped during compilation to HTML.

This is using MathJax

$\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$

## Tagged #

Tags are not visible in render

## Block Quote #

Org mode is amazing. So is Hakyll & Pandoc.

## Image #

Images has to have extension like:
