Is there some sort of gantt chart view package/feature for org-mode?

I want to view my headings in the gantt chart (rather then as we see it in agenda), and at least interactively modify those schedule by following operations:

  1. change the start or end date.
  2. shift the time range by not changing its length.

org-gantt.el may be the project which you seek. It seems to be in early development, so let's give it a try :)

  • I've looked at the org-gantt.el. As far as I understood, it works by converting the schedule to latex source code, and storing those in a dynamic block, which is not so much interactive...

You can export Org to TaskJuggler and do the Gantt chart there. Other alternative is python-gantt, but I never tried it.


It may be worth checking out this project which has recently been announced: https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/comments/hve0dy/ann_elgantt_gantt_chartcalendar_for_orgmode/
