I use org-mode to maintain my personal site. Whenever I create a new .org file in my website, I find myself retyping the following

#+OPTIONS: html-postamble:nil whn:nil toc:nil nav:nil

Is it possible to bind this template to a keystroke?

    Are you willing to use Yasnippet? – Dan Aug 3 '17 at 22:07

  • I use autoinsert mode for this purpose. No keystrokes to learn. – Juancho Aug 3 '17 at 23:52

You can use the templating system of org-mode. If you insert the following lines at the end of your init.el file:

(add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist
             '("P" "#+TITLE:\n#+OPTIONS: html-postamble:nil whn:nil toc:nil nav:nil\n#+HTML_HEAD:\n#+HTML_HEAD_EXTRA:\n\n? "))

After you restart emacs or source your init.el file, you only have to type <P at the beginning of your org-mode file, then the <TAB> key and this will automatically integrate the desired code.

See http://orgmode.org/manual/Easy-templates.html for the documentation of the template mechanism.
