Is there a way to export a .org file into an html that supports expanding and collapsing titles?

What I want is to be able to press a key like TAB and expand and collapse the outline, but on a html site.

Github wikis support orgmode but they don't seem to allow expanding and collapsing of titles.

What you are looking for is org-info.js, a JavaScript library to be used in conjunction with HTML files generated from Org. This library adds support for folding, navigation, etc.

Take a look at http://orgmode.org/manual/JavaScript-support.html, and the more detailed documentation here: http://orgmode.org/worg/code/org-info-js/.

    I suggest others don't go down this path. It's not maintained any more and the original author of org-info-js has removed all traces from of the main repo. I tracked down an unminified version org-info-src.js if you want to know what to google, but even in it's working state (you need a H1 or it will crash) it's still barely working on modern browsers.
