Is there a package to export an Org file to S5? I've found a couple stand-alone scripts, but (a) it's difficult to know which one to use and (b) it would be nice to have a package instead of a stand-alone script. If there is no package, is there a "canonical" script to use?


From https://github.com/eschulte/org-S5:

For new versions of Org-mode (>8.0) use the ox-S5.el export backend now distributed in the contrib/ directory of the Org-mode repository.

It looks like you should just install org-plus-contrib and just require the s5 export engine with:

(require 'ox-s5)

To install org-plus-contrib, first add the Org Emacs lisp Package Archive to your package-archives:

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/") t)
  • Any idea how to install org-contrib? I don't see it in my package list, and (require 'ox-s5) fails because it can't find the file. May 20 '16 at 5:20
  • Nevermind, I found it. I will update the answer. May 20 '16 at 5:39
